Acron’s new Ammonia-4 unit in Veliky Novgorod has recently reached a milestone, producing 500,000 tonnes of ammonia since its launch in July 2016.
These exciting results were achieved through an integrated and focused effort aimed at increasing the unit’s capacity. The new unit is still operating at higher capacity, and Acron specialists are testing the equipment at elevated conditions.
Ammonia-4 is the largest investment project at Acron’s Veliky Novgorod site in the past several decades and one of the largest ammonia units in the CIS. Its inauguration ceremony in July 2016 was attended by Russian President Vladimir Putin. The unit’s capacity is estimated at 2,060 tonnes daily and over 700,000 tonnes of ammonia annually. With the new unit in operation, annual output of ammonia at Acron’s production site will reach 1.9 million tonnes, which will help ramp up output at the existing fertiliser lines and provide a basis for expanding the company’s product portfolio.
