Preliminary results of the work of KuibyshevAzot PJSC for 2017|
In 2017 KuibyshevAzot PJSC achieved a record output for a number of main products: nitric acid, ammonium nitrate and polyamide. Revenues from sales at the end of the year amounted to 43 billion rubles., net profit of 3 billion rubles.
The increase in volume of salable products by 6.7% due to the start-up of the joint venture Linde Azot Togliatti, as well as the improvement in the prices situation of caprolactam and its processing products, allowed to increase revenues by 13.5% to 43 billion rubles. At the same time, the increase in costs of utilities, basic raw materials, repair and restoration of equipment, led to a decrease in net profit by 20.5% to 3 billion rubles.
The production volume of the main types of products amounted to:
- ammonia - 880.4 K tons, or 135.0% to the level of 2016;
- ammonium nitrate - 615.7 K tons (100.6%);
- urea - 309.5 K tons (91.0%);
- ammonium sulfate - 485.3 K tons (96.6%);
- caprolactam - 194.5 K tons (98.7%);
- polyamide - 6 - 147.2 K tons (102.7%);
- industrial and cord yarns - 11.0 K tons (87.3%);
- cord fabric - 3.2 K tons (100.5%);
- dipped cord fabric - 16.4 million linear meters (151.1%).
In 2017, a significant amount of work was carried out for the construction of new and retrofit of existing production facilities. Joint production of ammonia with the German company Linde, the 5th polyamide-6 plant and the production of compacted ammonium sulphate, built as a joint venture with Trammo (USA), were started in the commissioning mode and development of capacities is going on. A universal complete line (UCL) of nitric acid was put into operation and reached the design capacity. The construction of ammonium sulfate-nitrate production is going on. A joint venture with the Italian company Maire Tecnimont was established to design and build a new urea plant. In the spinning and drawing shop of polyamide production, the capacities of nine new Ratti machines for twisting textile yarns are being mastered.
In 2017, scheduled turnaround maintenance were carried out in the production of ammonium nitrate, urea, weak nitric acid and ammonia. As a result of constant technical upgrading and introduction of resource-saving technologies, it was possible to reduce the specific consumption of electricity, heat energy and river water per ton of product. The implementation of projects for the construction of oleum and improved sulfuric acid production, as well as the universal complete line (UKL No. 2) for nitric acid, has been started.
In 2017, work continued on the development of promising projects: the production of nitric acid, ammonium nitrate, an increase in the capacity of caprolactam production to 260 thousand tons.
KuibyshevAzot PJSC on a regular basis carries out work to reduce the impact on the environment. Within the framework of this work, a sewage treatment unit was put into operation in the urea plant, which allowed to stop the discharge of chemically contaminated sewage and reduced the consumption of river water.
To reduce emissions into the atmosphere, the first stage of no gas holder production scheme of weak nitric acid was introduced; in the production of ammonium nitrate, a vapor condensation unit was started in the commissioning mode. The construction of sewage treatment facilities is going on for industrial and storm sewage of the Northern industrial hub and the Central district of Togliatti.
In 2017, the confirmation was received on the compliance of the integrated management system (IMS) with the requirements of international standards in the field of quality, environmental and industrial safety, labor protection. The certification on the standard of the automotive industry ISO / TS 16949 had been passed, which applied to the process of dipped cord fabric production.
Totally in 2017, for construction and retrofit KuibyshevAzot PJSC spent 6 billion rubles, turnaround maintenance of factory facilities was made for the amount of 2.2 billion rubles. Therefore, in 2017 for the company's development 8.2 billion rubles were allocated.
Traditionally, in 2017 special attention was paid by KuibyshevAzot PJSC to the improvement of the living conditions and social security of personnel. Expenses in this field amounted to 357.3 million rubles. 1.8 billion rubles were paid by KuibyshevAzot PJSC to the budgets of various levels, in the form of taxes and insurance contributions.
