Over the six-month period to January 2017 the AUMUND Group company SCHADE Lagertechnik GmbH will supply multiple machines to the Russian fertilizer concern, PhosAgro Cherepovets.

Back in 2014, SCHADE won the order for a full-portal reclaimer for the urea plant PhosAgro 1. The 200tph (tonnes per hour) reclaimer has a 54m rail span and will be delivered in August 2016. SCHADE won this order thanks largely to its reference equipment in Dakota in the US as well as at OAO Ammoni in Mendeleevsk, also in Russia. The machine at Mendeleevsk was commissioned quite recently, in the summer of 2015.

In January 2017 SCHADE will deliver to PhosAgro a further two full-portal reclaimers, each with a capacity of 100tph, a rail span of 44m and weighing 144t; for its new plant extension for the production of potassium salt, ammonium sulphate and NPK. With this equipment the very aggressive material can be reclaimed via two conveyor belts. As well as the machines, SCHADE is also supplying the engineering and expertise for the plant.

The package is completed by the order for a third full-portal reclaimer for PhosAgro with a capacity of 400tph and a rail span of 44m, which will also be delivered in January 2017. This machine will be used in the 3 × 10,000t NPK production facility.

PhosAgro-Cherepovets was created in 2012 by the merger of Ammophos and Cherepovetsky Azot, aimed at bringing the production capacities together into a more simplified single structure. The 6,000-strong workforce of PhosAgro-Cherepovets makes it one of the largest producers of phosphate-based fertilizers, monophosphoric acid and sulphuric acid in Europe. The products are exported to Western Europe, Asia, America and Africa. Additionally, this organization is one of the leading producers of NPK and ammonium in the Russian chemicals industry.
