Organic growth is a gradual expansion of Grupa Azoty's business based on resources generated in its previous operations. In its pursuit of organic growth, Grupa Azoty has selected 68 investment projects at various planning or completion stages to receive up to PLN 7bn in capital support. This amount will be distributed among the valuedriving business segments (Fertilizers, Plastics, Oxoplast, Pigments, Melamine), internal power generation as an auxiliary segment, and corporate-wide projects, that is projects driving the value of more than one operating segment, all identified as part of the operationalisation.

Plastics

Construction of a polyamide II plant in Tarnów with an annual capacity of 80 thousand tonnes. The project will enable Grupa Azoty to sell approximately 140,000 tonnes of polyamides and 30,000 tonnes of composites, making it the third largest polyamide producer in Europe. The entire volume of caprolactam manufactured in Tarnów and Puławy will be processed by Grupa Azoty, while the polyamide could be modified for speciality applications. This will further expand our feedstock supply for the processing of plastics, enhancing the vertical integration of our business. The new polyamide plant will be worth PLN 320m.

Fertilizers

The granulation plant II project in Tarnów will allow Grupa Azoty to optimise its mix of fertilizer products and add further value to its ammonium sulfate output. It will enable simultaneous production of Saletrosan®30 and Saletrosan®30 macro, or Saletrosan® varieties with different nitrogen and sulfur contents, while doubling the production capacities of ASN and other mechanically granulated fertilizers. The project, scheduled for completion in December 2016, is worth PLN 140m.

Corporate projects

By 2019, the Grupa Azoty plans to build Europe's largest and most advanced PDH unit for propylene production, sited in Police. In addition to the PDH unit, the project involves construction of a power generation unit and expansion of the chemicals terminal in the port facilities owned by the Group. Worth PLN 1.7bn, it will be one of the largest investment projects in the history of the Grupa Azoty Group.

The ongoing project to build a mechanical granulation plant for ammonium nitrate-based fertilizers in Puławy will enable the manufacture, packaging and shipment of CAN and granulated ammonium nitrate. The complex will have its own storage facilities, and its target daily production capacity is 1,400 tonnes of CAN or 1,200 tonnes of granulated ammonium nitrate. Capital expenditure on the project will reach approximately PLN 385m.

Energy

The construction of a new 400 MWe power plant in Puławy is scheduled for completion in 2019. The power plant's CCGT unit will be compatible with three upgraded boilers of the existing coal-fired CHP plant. The plant will ensure low-emission and waste-free power generation, reduction of costs related to carbon dioxide emissions, and the company's self-sufficiency in terms of electricity and steam supplies. Any surplus output of steam or electricity will be sold to external customers. Capital expenditure on the project will reach PLN 1,125m.

By 2021, Grupa Azoty Puławy will also modernise and enlarge its nitric acid installation. The project is necessary to maintain the business scale and economic efficiency, and to prepare for manufacturing of a new range of fertilizer products. The project cost will reach PLN 695m.

Energy

A new CHP plant project in Kędzierzyn-Koźle will generate 25 MW of electricity and 140 Mg/h of heat. It is an exemplary pro-environmental project. No waste will be landfilled, but used in the construction, road building and mining industries. The project is to be placed in service by the end of 2019. Its total cost is PLN 600m.

 

Fertilizers

At the end of 2015, a liquid RSM® fertilizer unit was officially placed in service in Kędzierzyn-Koźle. The new unit's annual capacity will reach 100 thousand tonnes. RSM® is a highly concentrated nitrogen fertilizer in the form of a water solution of urea and ammonium nitrate, which is in great demand on the market. The project cost reached over PLN 29.5m.

Fertilizers

By upgrading the ammonia production units in Police in partnership with the New Chemical Syntheses Institute, Grupa Azoty is responding to the global shortage and rising prices of the product. The upgrade, at an estimated cost of PLN 156m, will increase the efficiency and reduce the cost of production, thanks mainly to lower consumption of natural gas and electricity. The project will be completed in 2016.

 

 

Energy

The newly installed flue gas treatment unit in Police and upgrade of the local EC II CHP plant will reduce NOx, SOx and dust emissions to meet stringent EU standards. This crucial project, scheduled for completion in 2016, demonstrates Grupa Azoty's unbending commitment to protection of the natural environment. The project cost will be just under PLN 164m.
