In turn, the management of PKOP LLP reported on the situation with the failure of the LANPEC plate heat exchanger, which led to the cessation of production of АИ-95 gasoline. Based on the manufacturer’s recommendations, it was decided to immediately replace the device. The new heat exchanger will be delivered to the plant in February next year. “I ask you not to avoid such disruptions in production in the future. Especially during the sowing and harvesting period. The out-of-commissioning heat exchanger was more than ten years old. It has been repaired many times. An interim decision has now been taken to resume the production of gasoline. However, the issue with the deficit will be completely withdrawn only after installation of the new heat exchanger and catalyst,” Nurlan Zhakupov said.
