Russia: License and Proprietary Equipment Stamicarbon Signs Contracts for Developing Urea Melt and Granulation Plant
The plant is being built by Shchekinoazot in the Tula region of Russia and Stamicarbon will be responsible for providing license, process design package and proprietary equipment to the project.
Sittard/The Netherlands – Stamicarbon, the innovation and license company of Maire Tecnimont Group, has recently signed a contract for License, Process Design Package (PDP) and Proprietary Equipment supply for a grass root urea melt and granulation plant for Shchekino Azot, to be built in Pervomayskiy, Tula region, Russia.
The scope of work for Stamicarbon is the complete license and PDP for a 2000 mtpd melt and granulation plant including supply of proprietary equipment. The urea melt plant will use Stamicarbon’s Pool Reactor Design and Flash Design. These designs simplify synthesis loop operation, lower investment costs and reduce steam consumption. The Safurex high pressure stripper and pool reactor will be equipped with a radar level measurement system.
The granulation plant will use Stamicarbon’s Optimised Granulation Design and the Micro Mist Venturi Scrubber technology. This high-performance multi-stage gas scrubber for granulators is designed to remove urea particles and ammonia gas at extremely high efficiencies. It is capable of meeting most stringent emission levels by capturing submicron dust and removing ammonia efficiently via the injection of an acid solution, while minimising energy consumption by keeping pressure-drop low.
