Two notable men who played a breakthrough role in the history of Nizhnekamskneftekhim were born on November 14th.
Today is the 90th anniversary of Nikolay Vasilyevich Lemaev, the first legendary General Director of the enterprise, who was in charge of it for 22 years (from 1963 to 1985). Thanks to the efforts of the team led by N.V. Lemaev, Nizhnekamsk Petrochemical Plant, within a short time, became the country's leading producer of isoprene rubber, butyl rubber, isoprene, divinyl, butylene, styrene, ethylene oxide, propylene oxide and other petrochemical products, the production share of which in the country ranged from 25 to 80% in respective years.
Vladimir Mikhailovich Busygin took over the business in 1999. From 1999 to 2000, he and N.V. Lemaev worked together to improve the production efficiency and to retain personnel of the enterprise, they also determined the strategic development of the company and the city. At that time N.V. Lemaev had been heading the Board of Directors of Nizhnekamskneftekhim (1997 - 2000).
As V.M. Busygin recalls: “I always felt the support of Nikolai Vasilievich, highly appreciated his wise advices. We perceived a lot of things in the same way, I guess it happened because we were born on the same day, November 14th, but 20 years apart. He was a real fount of wisdom and experience, I absorbed his thorough knowledge of production activities, his attitude to people, to the team word for word. We often met and resolved current outstanding issues, consulted with Mintimer Sharipovich Shaimiev, who supported us in all endeavors related to the development of Nizhnekamskneftekhim.
Vladimir Mikhailovich Busygin turns 70 today. For 14 years (from 1999 to 2013) he was the General Director of the Company, and then headed the Board of Directors of Nizhnekamskneftekhim for another 4 years (from 2013 to 2017).
A stage improvement of ethylene production unit started since 2000 under his leadership.
By 2004, the Company managed to enter a new successful round of development. This particular period is marked by a major refit of Nizhnekamskneftekhim material and technical base, the launch of Russia's only halobutyl rubber production unit, mastering of neodymium polybutadiene rubber (SKDN) production and an increase of polyethers production to 70 thousand tons per year at Styrene and Polyether Resin Plant.
Under the leadership of Vladimir Mikhailovich, the Company launched a production of new polymer products - plastics. In 2003, the first polystyrene granules were produced at the first production line with a capacity of 50 thousand tons per year, in 2005, the second polystyrene production line was commissioned, the construction of a one-stage isoprene synthesis unit was completed and commercial tests of the process were started. A year later, a polypropylene production unit with a capacity of 180 thousand tons per year was put into operation. In 2007, production of polybutadiene rubber on a lithium catalyst (SKDL) with a capacity of 50 thousand tons per year was commercialized, the second line for butyl rubber production (Welding-2) was launched, the GTU-75 cogeneration gas-turbine unit was put into operation, and the water treatment plant was started up (“ WTP– NKNH ”).
Over the next five years, the Company commissioned a polyethylene production unit, ABS plastics production unit, an automated environmental monitoring system, purchased licenses and started designing of a new olefin complex.
These and many other achievements gained during the years of Vladimir Busygin’s leadership allowed to bring Nizhnekamskneftekhim to a modern and high level of development. Today, the Company occupies its rightful position among the leaders of the global market for synthetic rubbers and plastics and continues to implement its sustainable development policy.

On 9 November the players of the Neftekhimik hockey team visited PJSC Nizhne-kamskneftekhim to familiarize themselves with the production process, to get acquainted and communicate with employees of the company, which make a huge contribution to the development of hockey.
The production tour started with a video tutorial on safety induction. Every sportsman was provided with special clothes and shoes, a protective helmet and a gas mask.
Familiarization with the production facilities of the petrochemical giant began as soon as the bus entered the industrial hub. Mr. Irek Aglyamov, the First Deputy General Director – the Chief Engineer of PJSC Nizhnekamskneftekhim, who has been attempting not to miss a single home game of the team, hosted the guests and accompanied them in the territory. Irek Angamovich spoke about the history of the company, its development and the products of the enterprise.
One of the most popular types of products is synthetic rubber. It is produced at the SK plant. Here, sportsmen saw for the first time how rubber crumbs are obtained and bales are formed. Mr. Stepan Zakharchuk, the captain of the team of HC Neftekhimik, after visiting the plant said: "The guys who work here are just great".
The next item of the tour program was the production of polystyrene and polypropylene of the plastics plant. These products are used for manufacture of plastic products applied in mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, medicine, and even the food industry. During the tour many players were impressed by the natural size of the enterprise.
- When you drive along the plants, it is always interesting to know, how and what it works there. Today we have familiarized ourselves with the industries and with the people who work here and do a great job. In addition, it is very nice that petrochemical workers cheer for us. We will try to win for them; - goalkeeper Konstantin Barulin shared his impressions.
No less exciting was the meeting of hockey players with the company's employees, because many of them are active fans of Neftekhimik. Mr. Vyacheslav Butsaev, the head coach of the team, thanked the employees of the company for their support at the matches. At the meeting, everyone could ask the players questions, as well as take pictures with them.

From 28 to 31 October, PJSC Nizhnekamskneftekhim held a professional skills contest among the duty sections of the OGSO. 12 branch units attended the competition. The knowledge of unit leaders and gas rescuers in providing first aid to victims was assessed during the competition. Participants demonstrated professional skills in theoretical and practical competitions.
The combat readiness testing program of the duty sections included seven testing tasks: “Alarm response“, “Treatment of leaks”, “Search and carrying casualties”,“ Release of the injured”, “Fixing the bandage”, “Installation and removal of the plug”, “First aid to the injured." The correctness and sequence of the rescuer actions, as well as their efficiency were taken into account during their performance. A penalty time was added to the teams for each irregularity.
The gas rescuers of section No. 2, GSO-3 coped best with the tasks. The 4th section of the same duty section was awarded the second place. The third was for the representatives of GSO-2, section No. 4.
In October 2019, PJSC Nizhnekamskneftekhim completed works on the change of outdoor switchgear equipment at the main step-down substations (MSDS) of the outdated “breaker isolated switch - short-circuit throwing switch” system with 110 kV gas-insulated circuit breakers. Thus, the company's power engineers completed one of the complex stages of organizational and technical activities for the change of equipment and implementation of solutions of the meeting protocol of Nizhnekamsk energy district of the Republic of Tatarstan dd 13.07.2013 dealing with improvement of the reliability of power supply to industrial consumers.
The breaker isolated switch - short-circuit throwing switch systems at the main step-down substations have been used since 1960, and their change was required with the increase of production capacity and the improvement of technological processes. They have no longer met up-to date requirements for the reliability of energy supply, allowing irregularities in the power supply of the entire industrial hub.
To ensure reliable and uninterrupted power supply to the plants and production facilities, it was necessary to remove the “breaker isolated switch - short-circuit throwing switch " systems from the power supply schemes. From 2006 to 2019, the change of the outdated equipment has been continuously carried out. In the first and second industrial areas of the joint stock company, the equipment worth more than 1 billion rubles has been changed at 15 main step-down substations.
The equipment has been replaced complete with relay protection devices at microprocessor protection devices.
The new installed equipment meets all modern requirements for the reliability of power supply, including those in case of emergency. It identifies a damaged part of the network with no occurrence of irregularities in the entire power supply circuit.
The completed stage of changing the outdated electrical equipment, as well as the ongoing works on replacing of 6 kV switchgears and the introduction of high-speed automatic transfer switches, altogether will significantly enhance the reliability of power supply to the production of PJSC Nizhnekamskneftekhim and the TAIF Group of Companies.
Thus, the conditions have been established for reliable operation of process units producing materials and reducing environmental impact.
The Ministry of Labor and Employment of the Republic of Tatarstan thanked the staff of PJSC Nizhnekamskneftekhim and Mr. Azat Bikmurzin, the General Director, as the company deserved special attention for its responsible approach and high level of professional training in the field of safe working conditions at the workplace. Everyone knew this news after summing up the results of the Republican contest “Work at Height. Security - 2019”, which was held in Kazan on 17-18 October.
The best ones were chosen in the nominations “The best team working at height with the free access system” and “The best specialist in labor protection when working at height”.
Ms. Albina Rudich, the lead labor protection engineer, was a delegate of Nizhnekamskneftekhim at the competition. The girl showed a high level of knowledge and competence in labor protection issues during the theoretical and practical stages - identification of personal protective equipment during certain types of work, detection of irregularities during work at height, the correctness of work permits preparation, etc. As a result, the employee of Nizhnekamskneftekhim became the fourth of 10 participating in the nomination “The best specialist in labor protection when working at heights.
The Republican contest “Work at Height. Safety-2019” was held for the third time to promote the protection of labor and work conditions, to increase the efficiency of the state labor protection management system, and to draw attention to the issues of ensuring safe work conditions when working at height.
The competition was held by the Ministry of Labor, Employment and Social Protection of the Republic of Tatarstan, jointly with the Regional Training Center.
