has been awarded by Technip FMC a contract for license and basic engineering of two gas-based ammonia plants for Hindustan Urvarak and Rasayan (Hurl). The two fertilizer complexes in Sindri and Barauni will each comprise 2,200 mtpd ammonia and 3,850 mtpd urea plants and will be realized by Technip FMC, France, along with their consortium partners L&T Hydrocarbon Engineering, India.
By using Topsoe’s ammonia technology the plant is intended to be one of the most energy-efficient plants in India, having reliable and safe operations. The Indian Government, NitiAayog (National Institution for Transforming India), the Department of Fertilizer under the Indian Ministry of Chemicals and Fertilizers are amongst the supporting parties of the projects in Sindri and Barauni.
The two new plants are part of the Indian government’s revival plans for the fertilizer sector to ensure Indian self-sufficiency in urea fertilizers. This ammonia plant is also a revival project scheduled to begin operation in the fourth quarter of 2018. Worldwide, Topsoe is the leading licensor of ammonia process technology with a market share of close to 50 % of all new ammonia capacity contracted since 1990.
