Nastem 2023 : Belleli presented a Stamicarbon licensed one-of-a-kind Reactor

Colorado Springs, USA. On April 3-6, 2023, the Tosto Group companies, Belleli Energy CPE and Walter Tosto, participated at the conference Nastem 2023 (North American Stamicarbon Exchange Meeting) organized by Stamicarbon (Maire Tecnimont Group), a leading company in the production process of urea fertilizers. The major customers for this type of plant in North America attended the event. Fausto Fusari – Vp R&D of Belleli – presented a paper to share the company’s experience in the design and construction of the first Pool Reactor Ultra Low Energy (ULE) design for the production of Urea fertilizers based on the Stamicarbon licence. The equipment, never built before, is characterized by very low energy consumption and it is destined for the Chinese market. The audience showed great appreciation for the significant and complex design activity performed and for the related fabrication. In particular, the complexity of the project, the criticality of the materials involved together with the considerable size of the component have raised remarkable interest among the experts.

Belleli welcomes the students of the "Bonomi Mazzolari" Professional Institute in Mantua

Today we welcomed two fifth-year students from the “Bonomi Mazzolari” Professional Institute in Mantua – an excellence of the area led by the Principal Prof. Roberto Capuzzo – for a shop tour. Our Engineers Fausto Fusari and Francesco Morandini illustrated the production processes with a specific focus on machine tools to the students accompanied by Prof. Giuseppe Bertoni, in charge for training projects, together with Prof. Genovesi and Prof. Barbatano. “With this excellent Institute we are setting up a strategic collaboration with the support of Confimi Industria Mantova (Apindustria Mantova) that we believe will consolidate over time for the future of the company and the Mantua area” said the C.F.O. of Belleli, Dr. Luca Pierfelice.

The students of the technical institute Enrico Fermi of Mantua visit Belleli Energy Cpe

Few days ago we have welcomed some classes of the 4th and 5th year of the Technical Institute “E. Fermi” of Mantua together with their teachers.

The students accompanied by our technicians and engineers were able to see with their own eyes what they studied at school. In particular they were impressed by the size of our equipment and by the components of the ITER nuclear fusion research project.

The visit followed a meeting that took place at the same Institute, requested by the School Principal, to learn about the possible role of qualified technicians and engineers in our society.

Belleli completed one of the world’s heaviest Ammonia Converter

Belleli Energy CPE has successfully completed the delivery of an Ammonia Converter.

This item has been entirely fabricated by Belleli in 19 months at its workshop located in Mantua (Italy) and will be employed in the process of the Ammonia synthesis.

The equipment, composed of shell forged barrels in low alloy steel SA541 Gr.22 Cl.2 with 224mm thickness and a final weight of almost 800 tons, is one of the heaviest Ammonia Converter ever built in history.

This significant achievement confirms Belleli strategical position as a manufacturing world leader of critical process equipment for new and existing chemical plants.

Belleli participates to the Gemlik Urea Plant Project

Belleli Energy CPE has completed the delivery of an ULE Pool Reactor licensed by Stamicarbon BV that will be installed in the Urea Plant located in Gemlik, Turkey, executed by Tecnimont Spa.
The equipment, weighing 345 tons, has been fabricated by Belleli in 18 months in its workshops located in Mantua, Italy and followed the delivery of a HP Stripper performed last August.

The reactor will be transported across the Mediterranean Sea and then moved to the plant by a special heavy road transport.
The equipment for this project is the third item in the last two years supplied by Belleli, which pioneered the Pool Reactor ULE design and the existing relationship with Stamicarbon.

This significant achievement confirms Belleli strategical position as a manufacturing world leader of critical process equipment for new and existing fertilizer plants.

Mantua celebrates the success of an important training and work project

A memorable event took place this morning in the scenographic setting of the Univermantova Foundation headquarters, in order to celebrate a successful collaboration. In 2019. Belleli Energy CPE, the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia and the Univermantova Foundation launched the “Critical Process Equipment Expert” post-graduate training course;  this year the story took shape with the placement in the Tosto Group’s companies of all the students who took part in the initiative: 20 young engineers selected from over 110 applications received.

At the event participated the Mayor of Mantua Mattia Palazzi, Marko Bertogna and Francesco Leali, UniMoRe Full Professors, Luca Pierfelice and Fausto Fusari, respectively CFO and V.P. R&D of Belleli Energy CPE and the students who testified their experience.

The initiative also received compliments from the Lombardy Regional Council which declared in a note sent to the company, signed by the Vice President of the Lombardy Regional Council Francesca Brianza: “The commendable initiative to involve young talents to be included in a training and growth project of the highest level, is extremely far-sighted and qualifies you as a company that has a very clear and strategic vision of the future”.
