The aim of this call  is to involve a private partner  for the restoration of the industrial infrastructure of «Nairit plant».  

«Nairit Plant» was founded in 1933 

In 1936 the production of calcium carbide was launched with 20 thousand tonnes/year power.

In 1939 the caustic soda, chlorine and synthetic hydrochloric acid acquisition workshop units  were launched with a capacity of 7 thousand tonnes/year power (due to caustic soda).

In 1940  the production of monovinyl acetylene, chloroprene and Chlorophrene rubber with acetylene aquisition base out of calcium carbide was launched  with 7 thousand tonnes/year power.

In 1942 the power  reached up to 10 thousand tonnes/year.

In 1961 the power increased up to 45 thousand tonnes/year due to rubbers.

In 1964   the reconstruction of caustic soda evaporation workshop with 66 thousand tonnes/year power  increase  due to caustic soda of 100 %.

In 1965  the launch of natural gas based acetylene acquisition workshop.

In 1966-1970 reconstruction of monovinyl acetylene and chloroprene aquisition workshops increasing the power up to 75 thousand tonnes/year due to rubbers.

In 1969 the power increase of   natural gas based acetylene acquisition workshop  went up to 75 thousand tonnes/year thanks to the products’ acetylene calculation.

In  1970  the launch of monocarboxylic acid production of 35.5 thousand tonnes/year power due to acetic acid.

In 1980chloroprene acquisition  production release  out of butadiene   up to 75 thousand tonnes/year.

In 1986    the production of rubbers was  launched thanks to  new technology  with 50 thousand tonnes/year power.

In 1989   the operation of  plant  was  terminated  by  the resolution of  the SupremeCouncil of Armenian Soviet Socialist Republic (henceforth Armenian SSR) for environmental considerations.

In 1990-1991 the production of chlorine and consequently all the other productions were relaunched  by the resolution of Supreme Council of the Republic of Armenia

In 1994 the  workshop   of chloroprene  acquisition out of acetylene was re-launched with 10 thousand tonnes/year power.

In 2010  the plant’s operation was terminated and  the plant has not been operating since then.

Presently  there are 5 basic productions  involved in the plant structure.

●  Natural gas-based production of acetylene

●  Acetylene-based production of chloroprene and butadiene(divinyl)-based production of chloroprene

● Production of rubbers

●Production of chlorine and caustic soda

● monocarboxylic acids  production (Acetic Acid, Formicidae Acid, Propynoic Acid)

As well as auxiliary productions.
