Onward at the hearing a number of reports, dealing with the designed facility performance and the envisaged activity, the environmental impact assessment materials, as well as the measures aimed at preventing and minimizing undesirable environmental effects were considered. Victor Zotov, Director of S&PR Plant, made a presentation on the reconstruction facility. It is referred to the tank farm of the production shop No. 2520, which is currently used for acceptance, storage and shipment of products and semi-finished products of PJSC Nizhnekamskneftekhim plants. Modernization of this tank farm is carried out within the framework of implementation of a new olefin complex EP-600 construction project in order to provide acceptance and storage of its marketable products.

According to Ruslan Kyaryushev, Chief Project Engineer at OOO KHIMPROMPROEKT, the reconstruction will result in replacing the old tanks commissioned in 1977 with new ones. It is also planned to equip an open pumping station for pumping over and pumping petroleum products to the oil loading/unloading rack. All process equipment will comply with modern safety requirements - it will have double mechanical seals or be hermetically sealed.

 

The reconstruction of the park will significantly reduce the negative impact on the environment. Arkady Yaroshevsky, director of Ekada-T Ltd. told about that in his report. He noted that the complex will be equipped with an automatic foam extinguishing system, a stationary irrigation system and air pollution sensors.

The changes will also affect the loading and unloading racks. As part of the upgrade, all loading and unloading operations will be brought up to standard requirements and automatized, ensuring a leak-proof loading and unloading of products, thus avoiding the emission of substances into the atmosphere.
