Construction site of VST-5000 in Kemerovo

Customer: Nitrogen-fertilizer maker

Location: Kemerovo, the Kemerovo Region.

Company sector:
A Nitrogen-fertilizer maker in Russia, a supplier of ammonium nitrate for industrial use to mining enterprises in Siberia and the Far East.

Date of works held: May 2020 - December 2020

Construction site of VST-5000 in Kemerovo

With the view of the output expansion of chemical fertilizers the Saratov Reservuar Plant has completed a cycle of works on the supply of tank equipment in quantity according to the engineering development programme.

Сonstruction and assembly work was carried out in a markedly continental climate (heavy precipitation seriously hampered the tank erection and paint application).

Due to the high quality level of the work performed SARRZ was able to forge partnerships with the Customer and implement the project in accordance with the approved work specification.

Main specifications:

  1. Stored product - urea-ammonia liquor;
  2. VST amount - 3 pcs with a capacity of 5000 m3, 300 m3, 100 m3;
  3. Material - 09G2S;
  4. Erection procedure - Roll method;
  5. Heat insulator (100 mm) and coating (galvanized profiled sheet with a thickness of 0,8 mm) assembly.

Specific features and complexities of the project

Vertical tank 5000 m3 erection in Kemerovo

The main feature of this project was the execution of the set of works on the supply of three tanks with a volume of 5000 m3, 300 m3, 100 m3, thermal insulation materials (mineral wool boards with a thickness of 100 mm, galvanized sheet with a thickness of 1 mm and profiled sheet with a thickness of 0.8 mm).

The second complexity was the markedly continental climate, which was accompanied by heavy precipitation, which seriously complicated the construction of the tanks and the surface paint application.

Except for chemically resistant coating (DTM) application, the surfaces of stairs, platforms and railings were additionally protected with hot zinc plating against corrosion.


Engineering department of SARRZ has implemented the following scope of works:

  • KM project and detailed drawings design development;
  • manufacture of vertical tanks coiled sheets;
  • delivery of vertical tanks by low roader and railway transport;
  • field installation (erection, painting, hydrotesting). Shell heat insulator was made from mineral wool boards with a thickness of 100 mm. Galvanized profiled sheet with a thickness of 0.8 mm was a coating material.
