Today, a meeting of the working group of AO "Nakhodka Mineral Fertilizers Factory" took place, at which the current status of the plant construction project was discussed.
It was noted that the contractor is currently completing survey work and is starting to equip temporary access roads and sites for storing the soil layer.
At the same time, project documentation is under development, and wastewater disposal from the main site is being designed. In the near future, it is expected to obtain technological schemes of the plant from the licensor. The EPC contractor is ready to order key equipment in accordance with the received specifications.
A separate item on the meeting agenda was the energy supply for the construction site. In this regard, it was noted that by mid-June, the completion of commissioning at the substation with a capacity of 3 MW is expected, which should fully cover the electricity requirement for the entire construction period.
“The NFP project is being implemented strictly on schedule. Under the conditions of coronavirus infection, we transferred office employees to a remote mode of operation, provided employees with everything necessary to protect themselves from the virus, and organized online monitoring of the epidemiological situation. Employees arriving at a construction site from other regions are obligatory placed on self-isolation. Thus, although the coronavirus made certain adjustments to our operation, it did not in any way change our plans for the completion of the works. By the end of 2020, we are going to complete the design of the plant’s infrastructure and enter the State Ecological Expertise of project documentation, ”said Taras Ganaga, General Director of AO "Nakhodka Mineral Fertilizers Factory".
Nakhodka Mineral Fertilizer Plant (NFP) is a large-scale investment project for the construction of methanol and ammonia production capacities in the Russian Far East.
The construction is carried out under the “turnkey” EPC contract with the leading international contractor for the construction of gas chemical plants - China Chengda Engineering Co., Ltd.
The construction of the plant will ensure the creation of more than 1,500 highly qualified jobs in the Nakhodka city district, and after tax holidays and launch of the Phase 2, up to 14.5 billion tax revenues to budgets of all levels annually.
