The volume of Togliattiazot’s Investment Program 2022 will reach 50 bln roubles. The program will include implementation of several key projects:
The Third Carbamide Unit
In 2018, TOAZ will start the construction of the third carbamide unit with a capacity of 2,200 tonnes per day. The project envisages the construction of a more economically viable and efficient unit than the currently available alternatives.
In March 2018, Togliattiazot signed a loan contract with international banking syndicates Commerzbank AG (Zurich, Switzerland) and Landesbank Baden-Wuerttemberg (Stuttgart, Germany) for 180 mln euros for a period of 9 years in order to finance the design and supplies of equipment and technologies required for the construction of the third unit.
The construction of the new unit will allow TOAZ to increase the share of ammonia processed into the product with a higher added value, create about 100 new jobs, and make additional payments to budgets of all levels. The unit was designed using the latest industrial safety and environmental technologies. The plant is scheduled to be commissioned in 2021.
Ammonia and Carbamide Transshipment Complex in the Port of Taman
In order to provide for uninterrupted supplies of chemical products, Togliattiazot has been constructing a strategically important facility since 2003, i.e. the ammonia and urea transshipment complex in the sea port of Taman in the Temryuksky District (the Krasnodar Territory). Following the long suspension of the project due to reasons beyond the company’s control, TOAZ resumed the works associated with the facility construction in 2015.
The project for construction of the Taman dry cargo port is being implemented as part of the state program titled “Russia’s Transport System Development in 2010–2021”. The project is also included in the land-use planning scheme of the Russian Federation in terms of federal transport and the Roadmap for development of sea ports in Azov-Black Sea basin up to 2020 approved by the resolutions of the Government of the Russian Federation. In turn, the Ministry of Transport of the Russian Federation included the cargo traffic of Togliattiazot transshipment complex in the plan of development of the Taman transport node in terms of the railway component thereof.
The cargo turnover of the terminal will reach 2 million tons of ammonia and 3 million tons of urea per year. The presence of a large infrastructure facility will provide 500 jobs for the local population.
During the implementation of the project, particular attention is paid to social and environmental security issues.
Design solutions ensure a high level of reliability, industrial and environmental safety of technological process of the transshipment complex. During design and construction, all requirements of regulatory documents in terms of accounting for loads and impacts on hydraulic facilities, including seismic, wind, wave, ice, loads and impacts from currents and vessels, etc., are met. Low failure rate of process equipment ensures environmental safety of the transshipment process.
In particular, reliability and safety of using the process pipelines for liquid ammonia during transportation and loading is provided by automatic control of temperature, pressure, flow rate and automatic protection against emergency situations when process parameters go beyond normal limits (shutdown of pumps feeding ammonia into a carrier, cutoff valves providing localization of pipeline sections in case of its mechanical damage, cutoff of detachable connections on carrier loading arms).Despite the relative safety of urea, measures are also provided to reduce emissions from facilities and transshipment areas by installing aspiration systems with dust collectors, given the large capacity of the bulk material transshipment complex. Urea is supplied to the loading area at the berth in an enclosed gallery; the risk of dust emissions in case of emergency depressurization of the gallery is minimal as the efficiency of dust collection systems provided for by the project is minimum 95 %.
In addition, the project provides for continuous monitoring of pollutants and suspended substances in seawater in order to detect unintentional leaks of pollutants from vessels and technical facilities in the course of construction and operation of the sea terminal, and monitoring of pollutants and alien hydrobionts in vessels’ ballast waters.
Currently, PJSC Togliattiazot, with the assistance of Novorossiysk Training and Research Marine Biological Center, is conducting quarterly monitoring of seawater, bottom sediments and marine biota of the Black Sea aquatory in the area of construction of hydraulic facilities of the sea terminal for ammonia transshipment and in the area of additional aquatory for vessel lay-up.
Togliattiazot is implementing a large-scale investment project for construction of the transshipment complex in the port of Taman, the total investment in which amounts to 40 billion rubles, without attracting budget funds. The Company plans to reach the design capacity by 2025.
In August 2022, the investment agreement on construction of a new school and a new kindergarten in the Krasnodar Territory was solemnly signed. The objective of the agreement is participation of PJSC TOAZ in the sustainable development of the Krasnodar Territory, which is a leader in terms of investment attractiveness and economic growth rates.

Reconstruction of BTPs (Biological Treatment Plants)
One of the priority projects included in the PJSC TOAZ Investment Program is the reconstruction ofBTPs (Biological Treatment Plants) that not only treat the sewage of the company but also serve the facilities of the northern industrial hub and utility users of the Komsomolsky District of Togliatti.
Retooling of Water Purification Facilities for Carbamide Units
The project is aimed at replacing the equipment that reached the end of its service life with more modern alternatives, which will increase the capacity of the unit up to 4380 thousand tonnes of demineralised water per year and improve the water purification rate up to 0.2µS/cm.
