Volume of investments: 100 000 000 rubles.
WHAT WE OFFER:
De-gassing of tanks: developing installations network and providing services in railway tanks freeing from gases.
WHO WILL PURCHASE:
Potential customers are transportation companies owning tanks for transportation of condensed gas. Legislation obligates them to perform de-gassing of tanks before scheduled repair. Although the existing stations of de-gassing are located far from repair depots, and consumers’ expenditures for transportation of empty tank-wagons are up to 10 thous. rubles per tank. Consumers are interested in performing de-gassing and repair at one place.
STAGE OF THE PROJECT:
Mounting of experimental-industrial installation in town Ishim.
After condensed gases discharge part of the product stays in the tank in a gas condition. This can lead to explosion. That is why an obligatory condition before repair and firing is to perform de-gassing of the tank. Nowadays it is realized in several stages via burning part of hydrocarbons by flare and further steaming of reservoir by water steam. It requires big energy demands and brings to environment pollution.
To solve this problem installation UVK 2-30 was developed. It allows to clear tanks by vacuum pumping of gas. This allows to reduce services cost twice in comparison with traditional method due to steam heating energy demands absence, but autonomous energy consumption is used and maintenance charges decrease while de-gassing efficiency increases thrice.
Istallation UVK 2-30 for de-gassing of tanks, services on de-gassing of railway tanks.
Unique characteristic of installation is that at the output gas contracts again to liquid condition (100-150 liters of usable product from each tank). Extracted gas is used in gas-generator and it allows operating almost in regime of autonomous energy consuming.
- Gas compression to liquid condition at the output.
Patent for invention №2366520 from 10.09.2009 «Installation for gases deleting from tanks»
Providing services on de-gassing of railway tanks near repair depots.
Tanks Market Survey
According to Russian Railways main computer center data in 2012 there were 32 000 tanks for liquefied hydrocarbon gases in the country. In comparison with 2011 growth made up 4,5%. Volume of de-gassing services market is 1,1 billion rubles per year.
The world market comprises 2,5 billion dollars among them 24% refer to the USA and Canada.
Federal state unitary enterprise «SG-Trans» almost acts like monopolist of the Russian Market. It has 14 departments in the country and provides services on de-gassing according to the tariff 16 500 rub. per tank. Market share, 99%. Alternative decision is offered by St.Petersburg Company «Clean Technologies»: they wash tanks with special solutions. Though this option did not get any expansion due technological limitations. Market share is less than 1%.
