7 April, 2017 Meeting at PAO Khimprom Novocheboksarsk
In Novocheboksarsk, a meeting between PAO Khimprom and Giprosintez took place. Some time before, Giprosintez was general designer of Novocheboksarsk chemical plant. More than 50% of the production units were designed by Giprosintez. Today Khimprom Novocheboksarsk is a sustainable chemical facility with vast plans of upgrade and expansion. The hosts took a keen interest in Giprosintez’ presentation that demonstrated our integrated design capacities as applicable to the design of chemical production plants and other facilities. At the meeting, the parties agreed that they both would benefit from revival of cooperation.
17 March, 2017 New steps towards optimized design workflow
On 17 March, 2017 Giprosintez’ Information Technologies department held a workshop titled ‘New features of Titan software’. Presented were the recent improvements of Titan design software added to optimize and facilitate the work of engineers.
10 February, 2017 Another process stream for Omsktekhuglerod
On 10 February, 2017 the design work started as advertised earlier by Volgograd region’s Industry and Trade Committee. Article: Omsktekhuglerod to build a new process stream According to VolgaPromEkspert, Omsktekhuglerod’s Board of Directors decided to expand their Volgograd facility by building another process stream. The stream will have a capacity of 40 thousand tons per year. The contracting process with Giprosintez is currently under way. In addition to construction of the process stream, this investment project is to include further upgrade of the feedstock and energy infrastructure. The process stream will start operation early in 2019. For reference, last summer Omsktekhuglerod Volgograd commissioned the fourth process stream and completed the construction of a 20.5 MW combined heat and power plant, currently under testing and commissioning. Total investment on the project amounted to RUB 1.4 bn. Information from VolgaPromEkspert: Presently the plant produces 200 thousand tons of carbon black per year. 80% of Omsktekhuglerod Volgograd’s 2016 product was exported. The company’s major partners are in Hungary, Poland, Romania, Turkey and Belarus. The company also exports to Bulgaria, India, Italy, Canada, Serbia, Ukraine and Azerbaijan.
On 20 January, 2017 Visit by Russian manufacturers of cutting-edge explosion-proof power equipment
On 20 January, 2017 a meeting was held with Russian manufacturers of cutting-edge explosion-proof power equipment from Saint Petersburg. The guests showed samples of their products and provided expert advice on equipment selection and operation. State-of-the-art high-tech equipment is a prerequisite of a successful project. Adhering to this principle allows Giprosintez to keep its position among Russian leading design institutes.
On 17 January, 2017 Military hospital engineering design begins
On 17 January, 2017 Giprosintez signed the state contract with Russian National Guard (Rosgvardiya) for the survey and design activities on the project ‘Reconstruction and expansion of military hospital No. 7 of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the RF’, Khabarovsk, pursuing the 2016 permanent construction itemized list. Next day after the signing, Giprosintez proceeded with the work. However, this is not the first medical facility in Giprosintez’ portfolio. The experience we have will ensure timely completion of the project to the characteristically high quality standards.
