Chemical Industry Digest - - News & Views -


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.
