Acron and Haldor Topsoe successfully completed a gas plant revamp project which allows it to now produce 2,500 metric tonnes per day (MTPD) of ammonia.
Ammonia-4 plant operated by Acron is one of the largest ammonia units in Europe.
The plant in Novgorod city was commissioned in 2016 at a cost of $500 million (€414 million).
Acron decided to increase its capacity and in late 2017 it was decided to revamp the plant altogether to enable it to reach the 2,500 MTPD target.
Topsoe specialists developed a new Heat Exchange Reformer and made changes to the CO2 Removal Section as well as made other modifications to the facility
The Acron engineers and Topsoe specialists working hundreds of miles apart and completed the overhaul of Ammonia-4 in November last year.
”Haldor Topsoe and Acron have been in a successful partnership for quite a while and the revamp project, that delivered in November 2020, marked another milestone in our cooperation. We believe our companies’ partnership will develop further for the benefit of both companies,” said Peter Vang Christensen, managing director of Haldor Topsoe’s Moscow office.
Aleksandr Popov, chairman of the board of Acron, added: “Boosting the Ammonia-4 plant is an important project of Acron Group’s investment program. Increasing its capacity will allow to sufficiently increase production of nitrogenous and compound fertilizers on our Novgorod site.”
