Izhorskiye Zavody Started Delivery of Three Petrochemical Reactors to Rosneft Refinery

Izhorskiye Zavody, part of OMZ Group, started the shipment of three petrochemical vessels for two customers: the hydrocracking reactor for Novokuibyshevsk refinery, the first stage hydrotreater reactor 3-R2001 and the second stage hydrotreater 3-R2002 for Kuibyshev refinery, part of Rosneft structure.

Reactor equipment was produced in line with contracts, signed by Izhorskiye Zavody in 2012. Hydrotreater units for Kuibyshev refinery represent 31 meters high vessels and 6 meters across diameter, each reactor weighs nearly 600 tons. Weight of vacuum gas-oil hydrocracking reactor R-101 for Novokuibyshev refinery accounts is approximately 700 tons, its height makes up 45 meters. It is the first time that Izhorskiye Zavody ship the products with such parameters.

The developer and license grantor of the base project for Novokuibyshev refinery was Chevron Lummus Global LLC (CLG), and for Kuibyshev refinery – The Axens Company (France). Izhorskiye Zavody already have a successful experience of cooperation with these licensers.

Delivery of three petrochemical vessels is a unique event: early October this year Izhorskiye Zavody simultaneously shipped several different products to its customers from the enterprise site for the first time in its history. Moreover Novovoronezh NPP-2 reactor VVER-1200 was shipped to the customer with this lot as well. In the short term Izhorskiye Zavody will deliver a hydrotreater reactor R-201 to Novokuibyshev refinery. Currently the equipment is under final stage of production. All vessels will be shipped to customers by waterway.
