ThyssenKrupp Uhde awarded another fertiliser contract in Turkey

Wednesday, Jan 30, 2013

Bandirma Gübre Fabrikalar─▒ A.┼×. (BAGFAS), a company based in Bandirma, Turkey, awarded ThyssenKrupp Uhde a contract to supply a plant for the production of calcium ammonium nitrate (CAN) fertiliser in 2012. The new plant will be integrated into the existing site on the south coast of the Marmara Sea. The contract is worth an approximate total of EUR141 million. Commissioning is scheduled for early 2015.

The new complex will comprise a nitric acid plant with a capacity of 1,195 tonnes per day. This nitric acid can optionally be used to produce 2,000 tonnes per day of granular CAN fertiliser with a nitrogen content of 26% or 1,550 tonnes per day of ammonium nitrate (AN) fertiliser. In addition, ThyssenKrupp Uhde is also engineering and supplying an atmospheric ammonia storage tank with a capacity of 20,000 tonnes. The plants will be built on a turnkey basis.

For ThyssenKrupp Uhde this is the second major contract to be received from BAGFAS. The first was for a mixed fertiliser (NPK) plant, a nitrophosphate (NP) plant and a diammonium phosphate (DAP) plant built on a turnkey basis at the same site back in 1980.

"The fact that our client has again placed their trust in us is further proof that our clients are satisfied with the way in which our projects are executed as well as with the reliability and cost-effectiveness of ThyssenKrupp Uhde technologies," said Alfred Hoffmann, the relevant Member of the Executive Board of ThyssenKrupp Uhde. "This plant contract impressively underlines our capability and competitiveness in the field of nitrate fertiliser plants."
