A new weighbridge is installed to accurately weigh and check shipments at T-8/2 of Shop No.1422 in Butadiene and HC Feed Plant in order to receive, store and ship semi-finished products and end products to consumer shops of Synthetic Rubber, Butyl Rubber, Isoprene Monomer, Butadiene and HC Feed and EP- 600 plants, as well as to third parties.
The weighbridge installation and commissioning activities were carried out from August to November 2020. Currently, T-8/2 is a whole complex which consists of a tank farm, a closed pumping station, a tank-car loading unit and an administrative building with the control room.
Petrochemicals are continuously shipped at the new weighbridge and sent to domestic consumers. Special truck scales ensure the accuracy and their operation is monitored by the shop personnel.“The scales consist of six platforms and eight measuring sensors. The signal from the sensors is transmitted to the terminal cabinet where it is processed to determine the weight of the tank-car. Further, the information is transferred to the automated workplace of the loading operator. The commissioning of this weighbridge has a positive effect on mutually beneficial cooperation between Nizhnekamskneftekhim and petrochemical consumers,” Ilnur Gilfanov, Head of Shop No.1422 of Butadiene and HC Feed Plant, explains.
– For this purpose, specialists of the Department of Informational Technologies (DIT) of PJSC Nizhnekamskneftekhim have developed and implemented a software robot for the EP-600 Complex under construction in May 2020.
The software robot creates the required entries in the material directory and purchase orders in the corporate SAP ERP accounting system based on electronic packing lists and invoices received from partner companies for materials and equipment supplied for the construction of the new industrial facility. Data processing is fully automatic. In addition, the system generates a number of reports on relations with contractors, registration of commercial invoices and VAT invoices, on the status of customs procedures, on stocks of materials and equipment and their traffic control, etc.
Now, the share of purchase orders created by the software robot is 12%, and of order items - 41% of the total number of all procurement transactions performed at PJSC Nizhnekamskneftekhim. According to DIT specialists, the share of orders created and processed by the software robot will continue increasing. Thus, the introduction of this system made it possible to avoid a significant increase in the staff of the procurement service.

PJSC Nizhnekamskneftekhim is working on dismantling of the process unit on an area of 0.5 hectares. The I-4d unit of Synthetic Rubber Plant with a design capacity of 5 thousand tons per year has been in operation since 1993 and has reached the end of its service life. The production facility was a fugitive source of emissions.

The I-4d unit of Synthetic Rubber Plant, shop No. 1507, was intended for the synthesis and recovery of the high-octane oxygen-containing component KAT-K (C6 esters), synthesis of methyl tert-amyl ether and methyl sec-amylene ether. The products were used as raw materials in the production of motor gasolines to improve antiknock properties.
“The unit consisted of vertical vessels up to 50 meters high. There were three columns in total. We removed the equipment from process flow scheme and prepared it for dismantling,” emphasized Sergey Tselousov, Head of the Production and Technical Department of Synthetic Rubber Plant.
According to petrochemists, about 100 units of out-dated equipment will be dismantled.
