KEY DEVELOPMENTS OF THE MONTH:
Installation of oversize equipment was completed at the steam cracker. The transformer substation is at the final stage to prepare for voltage feed. 10 kV switchgears and distribution transformers of the substation are ready for voltage feed from main step-down substation No. 2 to the equipment.
Voltage of 10 kV was fed to the transformer substation of the polyethylene production unit. The first process equipment supplied by Uralkhimmash was assembled, including adsorption devices to separate nitrogen from oxygen, carbon monoxide, water and carbon dioxide.
The polypropylene unit started continuity tests on its equipment to check electric circuits.
Testing of the on-site piperack was completed.

KEY TECHNICAL UNITS
Oversize equipment was completely installed at the steam cracker, with all pipes for the boilers now in place.
Buildings and structures are undergoing architectural works (plastering and painting), concrete paving, cement-based fire-resistant coating of load-bearing metal structures in buildings along with finishing in substation and controller facilities.
The facility is preparing to launch circulating water pumps and cooling tower fans, and to fill the cooling tower basin with circulating water.
Hydrostatic tests were completed and the first-priority boilers were treated with nitrogen. Refractory lining inside the top-priority boilers was made in full.
Building a flare of 175 metres high is underway.
10 kV switchgears and distribution transformers of substation No. 2 are ready for voltage feed to the equipment.
Voltage of 10 kV was fed to the transformer substation of the polyethylene production unit.
The first process equipment supplied by Uralkhimmash was assembled, including adsorption devices to separate nitrogen from oxygen, carbon monoxide, water and carbon dioxide.
