OJSC Crimean Soda Plant (Krasnoperekopsk, Crimea) has announced its plans to upgrade facilities and build a 32 MW steam power unit, which will generate enough electricity to cover up to 90% of the plant“s need. As a result, there will be a cut in the production cost of caustic ash by 7-10%. The contract for the design and project regarding the construction of the new power unit have been signed with Chemieanlagenbau Chemnitz GmbH (Germany). According to a recent press release, the necessity to upgrade the energy system at the plant is linked to the low efficiency of its operation (the efficiency coefficient of its old steam boilers is up to 75%) and technical losses of steam quality during its transportation to remote workshops. Germany“s OstChem Germany GmbH, the daughter company of OstChem Holding AG, owns an 89.99% stake in OJSC Crimean Soda Plant. OstChem Holding AG, in turn, belongs to Group DF, which unites assets of the co-owner of Swiss RosUkrEnergo, Dmytro Firtash.
