Chemical Industry Digest - - News & Views -

To­tal has in­au­gu­rated its new state- of- the- art lu­bri­cants oil blend­ing plant, strate­gi­cally lo­cated in the Kaluga re­gion of the Rus­sian Fed­er­a­tion. The grand open­ing cer­e­mony took place in the pres­ence of Ana­toly Ar­ta­monov, Gov­er­nor of the Kaluga Re­gion, and Pa­trick Pouyanné, Chair­man and CEO of To­tal.

This blend­ing and pro­duc­tion plant will al­low To­tal to lo­cal­ize the pro­duc­tion of its top-tier lu­bri­cants for the Rus­sian market. With an in- vest­ment equiv­a­lent to $ 50 mil­lion, this fa­cil­ity has been de­signed to pro­duce ini­tially 40,000 tons of au­to­mo­tive and in­dus­trial lu­bri­cants per year, with a scale-up op­tion to bring this ca­pac­ity up to 70,000 tons per year.

The plant is equipped with a fully au­to­mated blend­ing sys­tem and ul­tra­mod­ern fill­ing lines, cov­er­ing an area of 7 hectares of the Vorsino in- dus­trial park in the Kaluga Re­gion. Its op­er­a­tions will cre­ate 50 new work­ing po­si­tions on­site.
