PhosAgro starts ammonia production plant

MOSCOW, RUSSIA: PhosAgro, one of the world’s leading vertically integrated phosphate-based fertilizer producers, has begun construction of a new, energy efficient ammonia production plant with a capacity of 760,000 tonne per year at PhosAgro-Cherepovets in the Vologda region, Russia.

The new ammonia line will be the first ammonia line of such capacity in contemporary Russia. Total investments into the production facility and related infrastructure are expected to exceed RUB 25 billion ($777.22 million). The commissioning of the new ammonia plant is planned for 2017.  

“PhosAgro’s investment programme has helped our Cherepovets production site to develop over recent years into a leader by mineral fertilizer production capacity and volumes in both Russia and Europe. The launch of the new production line will both enable PhosAgro-Cherepovets to become self-sufficient in ammonia and lay the foundation for further expansion of its fertilizer production capacities,” said Alexei Grigoryev, CEO, PhosAgro Cherepovets.
