Uhde wins another fertilizer contract in Turkey  

By Gerald Ondrey |

Bandirma Gübre Fabrikaları A.Åž. (BAGFAS; Bandirma, Turkey) has awarded ThyssenKrupp Uhde (Uhde; Dortmund, Germany; www.thyssenkrupp-uhde.de) a contract to supply a plant for the production of calcium ammonium nitrate (CAN) fertilizer 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 €141 million. Commissioning is scheduled for early 2015. The new complex will comprise a nitric acid plant with a capacity of 1,195 metric tons (m.t.) per day. This nitric acid can optionally be used to produce 2,000 m.t./d of granular CAN fertilizer with a nitrogen content of 26% or 1,550 m.t./d of ammonium nitrate (AN) fertilizer. In addition, Uhde is also engineering and supplying an atmospheric ammonia storage tank with a capacity of 20,000 m.t. The plants will be built on a turnkey basis. For Uhde, this is the second major contract to be received from BAGFAS. The first was for a mixed fertilizer (NPK) plant, a nitrophosphate (NP) plant and a diammonium phosphate (DAP) plant built on a turnkey basis at the same site back in 1980.
