PJSC Nizhnekamskneftekhim is implementing a project for the construction of a new power plant with a capacity of 495 MW under special conditions. It will produce electric energy for the company's own needs. One of the main factors to construct its own CCPP-TPP is to use Nizhnekamskneftekhim purges as a fuel. These purges include petroleum gas processing products coming from existing ethylene production. Thus, the new power plant will reduce the load on the air atmosphere by burning this gas in specially designed burner devices of gas turbine plants.
At present, construction and installation works are in their active phase, all main buildings are installed, finishing works in production and office premises are started. Large-capacity equipment - two gas turbines and a steam turbine with generators, waste heat boilers are delivered to the site and are practically assembled. The outlines of a future 89 meter cooling tower are emerging; it is being built specifically for the station operation. Everything is carried out exactly according to the established schedule.
At the same time, the work to provide communications for the future facility is underway: a water pipe has been tied in, installation of a gas pipeline, heating and sewage pipelines have been started. Besides, the work continues on the facilities for power distribution scheme (PDS), namely the construction of a new distribution substation DS ”Zharkov” and electric power lines.
Total 1177 employees of the general contractor company were brought to the construction site. All necessary measures have been taken to prevent the virus spread, meetings are held online via video conferences, access to the construction site is severely restricted. The general contractor worked out all issues related to the supply of equipment.
The station will operate around the clock. Today the staff is being formed, manning will be completed before the end of this year.

Today, May 7, employees of all branches of communication, radio engineering and radio journalism celebrate their professional holiday.
The communication service was introduced at Nizhnekamsk Chemical Plant in 1965. The first Head of Communication service shop No. 31 was Aleksey V. Chernikov, a professional having experience of a military front-line communication officer and work at industrial and power enterprises of the country. The first self-contained automatic exchange (ATS) with 1300 numbers of a step-by-step system at the Chemical plant was put into operation in September 1966.
Along with automatic telephone exchanges, Nizhnekamskneftekhim continuously developed communication and alarm networks for industrial and process purposes. It has always been a priority for the communication workshop to provide process workshops with all types of communication. In the 80s, yet the capacity of automatic telephone exchange was not enough due to a launch of New Production Facilities. In spring 1992, ATS-34, the first 11 km fiber-optic communication line was put into operation in the territory of Tatarstan with a digital compression system for 480 channels between NKNH and the city, under the guidance of V.G. Opanasenko. In addition, in August the same year, the quasielectronic ATSCE “Quant” started operating with a subscriber capacity of 6144 numbers and the status of a regional ATS, which was highly unusual for an industrial enterprise.
In 1992 thru 1995, various modern means of communication were put into operation as follows: a satellite communication station, a Motorola radiotelephone trunk system for 450 subscribers, and a Meridian-1 digital electronic telephone exchange with a capacity of 336 subscriber numbers. The complex simultaneously provided local telephone communication, intercity (international) satellite and radio communication with mobile facilities.
In 2010, SI-3000 digital telephone exchange was introduced having a wide range of multiservice functions (voice, Internet, video).
Now, by efforts of specialists from the Central Telecommunication and Communication Administration, headed by A.Yu. Polyakov, continuous operation of production and process communication is provided, support and maintenance of automatic telephone exchanges and digital stations, line-cable networks and communication facilities, dispatch switches, telephone subscriber equipment, speaker systems, alerts, radio communication and cellular communication of FMC closed group are carried out ".
The first broadcast of a weekly radio newspaper in the history of the Petrochemical Plant was introduced on 12 December 1967. Moreover, it started regularly released in the early 70s. In the 1990s, radio broadcasts started released in the Russian and the Tatar languages. Under the direction of R.R. Samarkina, radio Neftekhim began broadcasting on the wavelength of 105.1 FM on 29 August 1996.
From 1 January 2015, reporters of Neftekhim Media LLC have conducted the NKNH radio chronicle.

We always need to help them and support them, ” said Airat Safin, General Director of the Company, congratulating the front-line soldiers.
Veterans were very pleased by the visit of the guests; in conditions of self-isolation, they primarily lack communication. This year's anniversary is celebrated in the situation of the Coronavirus pandemic, so when visiting veterans, all the necessary recommendations to prevent the spread of infection were followed.
On May 6 and 7, representatives of numerous divisions of Nizhnekamskneftekhim visit their former home front workers — there are 116 of them in the Company’s Veterans Board. They will present the home front workers with valuable gifts, food packages, and commemorative medals in honor of the 75th anniversary of Victory in the Great Patriotic War.
This year, on the eve of the anniversary event, the management of PJSC Nizhnekamskneftekhim decided to transfer funds to the war veterans and home front workers for costs to cover housing and communal services. In addition, for the celebration of the 75th anniversary of Victory Day, everyone received a monetary reward. Three veterans of the Great Patriotic War have received allocated funds for the repair of their apartments.
At the Polyethylene Production Unit of the Plastic Plant of PJSC Nizhnekamskneftekhim, work was completed to change the catalyst in the Adsorber at the Ethylene Purification Unit. This equipment was installed in workshop No. 5807 in 2012 and is intended to purify monomer, the major raw material for the production of polyethylene.
The change of the catalyst is associated with the end of catalyst service life. Its refilling is a long and laborious process. For safety, an additional purge and decontamination of spent catalysts with hot nitrogen and air is carried out before unloading. The usage of fresh catalyst is also accompanied by the obligatory dehydration of residual moisture by hot nitrogen.
The catalyst system itself consists of three types of cleaning agents. One type of the catalysts is intended for purification of raw materials from sulfur-containing compounds, arsines and phosphines, the other two are for purification of acetylenic and diene compounds, as well as residual oxygen.
Change of the catalysts will improve the purity and quality of ethylene entering the polymerization section, which in turn will positively affect the quality of the produced polyethylene and reduce the consumption rates of raw materials.
PJSC Nizhnekamskneftekhim joins the international campaign "Garden of Memory 2020", organized in honor of the 75th anniversary of Victory in the Great Patriotic War. The purpose of this event, according to the idea of its initiators, is to make a living monument to each of the victims, by planting 27 million trees across the country.
In support of this idea, Nizhnekamskneftekhim launched a number of projects. On the eve of Victory Day, May 8, Nizhnekamskneftekhim will conduct a large-scale planting of trees along the Sobolekovskaya highway. On this day, it is planned to plant 75 pine seedlings. Young activists of the Сompany made a proposal for those who live in private houses or in the country, to plant a tree or bush in their own area too, and devote the action to their family hero (participant in the Great Patriotic War). You can take part in the action while at home - by drawing a tree, making crafts or application, devoting to the heroes of the Great Patriotic War. Photos or videos is to be posted on Instagram with the hashtag #SadPamyatiDoma, #SadPamyatiNKNH and note @nizhnekamskneftekhim and @molodezhnknh on instagram.
On the sadpamyati site 2020.rf everyone can put their tree on an interactive map.
In late April, two production units of the Oligomers and Glycols Plant of PJSC Nizhnekamskneftekhim celebrated 40 years from the date of receipt of the first product. We are talking about the production of Ethylene Oxide and Monoethylene Glycol.
April 28, 1980 was the starting point in the history of the Ethylene Oxide Plant. On this day, 40 years ago, production unit No. 1 of Ethylene Oxide, workshop No. 2405, was put into operation. Moreover, in 2 days, on April 30, 1980, petrochemical engineers received the first products of workshop No. 2406 - Monoethylene Glycol (MEG). These events were preceded by a long and hard work on the design, construction and commissioning of these industries.
A year later, in May 1981, the production of Ethyl Cellosolve was commissioned at Nizhnekamsk-neftekhim. The petrochemical staff mastered the technological process at the new production facility rather quickly, and one year later the workshop steadily produced 5 types of products.
In 1985, MEG production reached its maximum output of over 71 KTA. Thanks to the revamp of existing equipment, carried out in 1986 thru 1989, the factory workers were able to increase production capacity to 81 KTA.
Monoethyleneglycol produced at Nizhnekamskneftekhim complies with the International Standards. The method of its production, developed by the plant’s specialists together with scientists of the Scientific and Technological Center, received a patent from the Russian Federation, and it was recognized as the best invention of 2002. In 2004, the production of MEG of the highest grade made over 111 KTA.
Work on improving the quality of products goes on. Thus, in 2014 and 2016, these facilities underwent a change of automation equipment. The modernization of the columns at the production of Ethyl Cellosolve allowed to reduce energy consumption by 10 to 15% too. In addition, from Ethylene Glycols and Ethyl Cellosolve waste, which previously has been burned, the workshop began to produce a Dehumidifier for gas producers, and a Dust Suppressor for Potassium salts, being now in great demand among consumers.
Ethylene glycol is used in the manufacture of synthetic fibers, resins, solvents, low-freezing and hydraulic fluids. Ethyl Cellosolve is used in chemical, medical, defense, and paint and varnish industries.
Ethylcarbitol is used for the production of esters, the preparation of brake and special hydraulic fluids.
