PhosAgro to build ammonia plant in Vologda, Russia

ST PETERSBURG, RUSSIA: PhosAgro and an international consortium led by Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Ltd have signed a contract for construction of a new, energy efficient ammonia production plant at PhosAgro-Cherepovets in the Vologda region, Russia. The new line is expected to have an ammonia production capacity of 2,200 tonne per day. The consortium will also include Sojitz and Renaissance Heavy Industries, which will be responsible for construction work. Haldor Topsoe is the licensor of the ammonia production technology.

The ammonia plant commissioning is scheduled for the first half of 2017. The $785 million investment ammonia plant will increase the ammonia capacity by nearly 70 per cent.

“The construction and commissioning of the new ammonia plant at our PhosAgro-Cherepovets site will mark a new phase in PhosAgro’s development, strengthen its market-leading position, create new jobs and improve production efficiency. The project is designed to achieve one of PhosAgro’s key strategic goals of increasing internal processing of its own phosphate rock to produce higher volumes of phosphate-based fertilizers,” said Maxim Volkov, CEO, PhosAgro.
