For 12 months of 2020, PrJSC “Severodonetsk Azot Association”, a member of Group DF nitrogen line of business, produced 843,160 t of mineral fertilizers (in 2019 – 384,090 t). In particular, the company last year produced 444,380 t of ammonium nitrate, 352,040 t of urea, 4,420 t of aqueous ammonia technical and 42,320 t UAN (urea ammonium nitrate). The company also produced 432,860 t of ammonia, 7,490 t of liquid carbon dioxide, 19,080 cubic meters of medical gas oxygen in cylinders.
According to the top manager of the company, restoration of production potential was attributed to a number of factors including the price for the natural gas, the main raw material, which was affordable for the production of the mineral fertilizers. Another key factor for PrJSC “Severodonetsk “Azot” was the restoration of a reliable power supply. The company is category 1 electric power consumer; it requires two independent sources of the electric power supply. This condition was met with the commissioning in 2020 of the Kremenskaya substation: PrJSC “Severodonetsk “Azot” and with it the entire Luhansk region were again connected to the United Energy System of Ukraine.
In November 2020, PrJSC “Severodonetsk “Azot” resumed the production of medical grade oxygen. Medical grade oxygen produced by PrJSC “Severodonetsk “Azot” was registered and entered in the State register of medicines as a medicine used for prevention of emergence and distribution, localization and elimination of a coronavirus disease.
According to 2020 performance results, the company produced more than 19,000 cubic meters of medical grade gas oxygen in cylinders.
