Year of implementation: 2019
Brief description of the Project: The company named Apatit AO (before November 01, 2017 its corporate name was PhosAgro-Cherepovets AO) focuses on production of phosphate-based mineral fertilizers, phosphoric and sulphuric acids, aluminium fluoride, ammonia, carbamide, ammonium nitrate and ammonium nitrate-based fertilizers.
The production cluster located in Cherepovets and belonging to the PhosAgro Group is Europe’s largest producer of phosphate-based fertilizers, phosphoric and sulphuric acids, and is one of the Russian leading producers of NPK fertilizers, ammonia and ammonium nitrate.
The task: To design explosion-proof lighting and switching equipment in the scope of the lighting system revamp at the Ammiak-2 Production Plant. Every subtle aspect of using the luminaires under complex chemical production conditions with special safety requirements had to be taken into consideration: the luminaires should endure severe operating conditions on site, be highly efficient and easy-to-maintain, and should not blind the production personnel.
The result: For the purposes of revamp, the experts of Lighting Technologies, in cooperation with electric installation contractors and the Customer, have developed technical solutions based on explosion-proof boards, boxes and luminaires. Upon the project implementation, the required illumination intensity levels are obtained, given the state-of-the-art lighting equipment available on site. The vast majority of the components used for the project are products made by Lighting Technologies, including various types of explosion-proof boxes and boards; this allowed to fully satisfy the needs for the switching equipment with the products from the same vendor.
