Regarding the already announced project to build a new polyolefin production facility at Tobolsk, both parties officially signed on 6 April 2016 the EP-SS contract at SCHMIDT headquarters / Germany. ZapSibNeftekhim is a “Greenfield“ project of SIBUR Holding PJSC, located at the Tobolsk production site of the Group.

Based on the already finalized FEED study the agreement consists of detailed engineering, procurement and site services to set up a state-of-the-art logistics infrastructure.

Within the next 3 years, a silo farm with 45 silos of 1000 m³ each, 8 packaging lines integrated into a covered warehouse complex of 50,000 m² and a container terminal with a capacity of 2,600 FEU will be built to handle the yearly throughput of 2m tons of polypropylene and polyethylene.

This new contract is a further major milestone of the already well established partnership between the two companies, both at Tobolsk and other production sites in Russia.
