Total inaugurates new state-of-the-art lubricants oil blending and production plant
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.
