Speaking to the audience, Airat Safin noted that the start of isoprene production run had become one of the most difficult projects at Nizhnekamskneftekhim. The production process turned out to be rather complicated, therefore the work of the plant in the 80s began with the identification of shortcomings and the development of methods for their elimination. The development of one-stage synthesis of isoprene production could be safely called a breakthrough of the staff. A close-knit team of such like-minded people as the incumbent stagers helped to cope with this strategic task.
The current predecessors continued these glorious traditions. Great changes had recently taken place in production. Thus, under the program to increase the production capacity of SKI-3 rubber, the plant implemented capital investment projects for formaldehyde, isobutylene and isoprene production. As a result, the production of isoprene had increased, the performance indicators had improved, and the consumption rates of utilities and raw materials had decreased.
IM Plant was actively introducing innovations. The production was one of the first to use the transition to a contactless shift acceptance and handover during the period of self-isolation caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
Airat Safin expressed confidence that Isoprene Monomer Production Unit would continue to fulfill successfully production tasks, thereby strengthening the position of NKNK in the Russian and world markets. He also wished all employees good health, well-being and continued success.
Maksim Shuysky, Director of IM Plant, emphasized that the team had large plans to implement projects aimed to improve the reliability of equipment and to develop a new technology for making highly profitable isoprene-based products, so he assured the company management that the plant staff would successfully cope with the tasks set.
Also the award ceremony took place that day. Dozens of plant workers were conferred various awards.
The specialists of NKNK IT Department are actively working to expand digitization of various processes. Thus, in 2020, the company developed "Digital permit for hot and gas hazardous works" information system. It allowed optimizing the procedure of obtaining a permit for hot and gas hazardous works and reducing the time for its approval. However, the main advantage of the system was the binding of work permits to geolocation and their display on online map to exclude simultaneous execution of incompatible works.
Plastics Plant was the first industrial facility where that innovation was implemented for pilot production. Currently, the specialists of the department are expanding the functionality of the task for issuing work permits for earthworks and replicating it for all divisions of the company.
A new weighbridge is installed to accurately weigh and check shipments at T-8/2 of Shop No.1422 in Butadiene and HC Feed Plant in order to receive, store and ship semi-finished products and end products to consumer shops of Synthetic Rubber, Butyl Rubber, Isoprene Monomer, Butadiene and HC Feed and EP- 600 plants, as well as to third parties.
The weighbridge installation and commissioning activities were carried out from August to November 2020. Currently, T-8/2 is a whole complex which consists of a tank farm, a closed pumping station, a tank-car loading unit and an administrative building with the control room.
Petrochemicals are continuously shipped at the new weighbridge and sent to domestic consumers. Special truck scales ensure the accuracy and their operation is monitored by the shop personnel.“The scales consist of six platforms and eight measuring sensors. The signal from the sensors is transmitted to the terminal cabinet where it is processed to determine the weight of the tank-car. Further, the information is transferred to the automated workplace of the loading operator. The commissioning of this weighbridge has a positive effect on mutually beneficial cooperation between Nizhnekamskneftekhim and petrochemical consumers,” Ilnur Gilfanov, Head of Shop No.1422 of Butadiene and HC Feed Plant, explains.
– For this purpose, specialists of the Department of Informational Technologies (DIT) of PJSC Nizhnekamskneftekhim have developed and implemented a software robot for the EP-600 Complex under construction in May 2020.
The software robot creates the required entries in the material directory and purchase orders in the corporate SAP ERP accounting system based on electronic packing lists and invoices received from partner companies for materials and equipment supplied for the construction of the new industrial facility. Data processing is fully automatic. In addition, the system generates a number of reports on relations with contractors, registration of commercial invoices and VAT invoices, on the status of customs procedures, on stocks of materials and equipment and their traffic control, etc.
Now, the share of purchase orders created by the software robot is 12%, and of order items - 41% of the total number of all procurement transactions performed at PJSC Nizhnekamskneftekhim. According to DIT specialists, the share of orders created and processed by the software robot will continue increasing. Thus, the introduction of this system made it possible to avoid a significant increase in the staff of the procurement service.
