Fertiliser complex for Turkmenistan

Gap Insaat of Turkmenistan, a subsidiary of Calik Holding (Turkey), has commissioned Krupp Uhde with the design and construction of a natural gas-based fertiliser complex comprising an ammonia plant and an urea plant. The plants are to be situated in Tedjen, Turkmenistan, 220km to the east of the capital Ashgabat. The end customer for these fertiliser plants is the Turkmenistan government, who awarded the main contract to Gap Insaatyatirim Ve Dis Ticaret AS, Turkmenistan branch.
Krupp Uhde’s scope of services includes the design, supply and commissioning supervision of the fertiliser complex. The ammonia plant will produce 600 tonnes per day using Krupp Uhde’s proprietary low-energy ammonia process. The urea plant will produce 1050 tonnes per day of urea (granulation) using Netherlands-based Stamicarbon’s pool reactor process. Belgium-based Hydro Fertiliser Technology’s fluidised-bed process will be used for the granulation. The entire construction work will be carried out by the Turkmenistan branch of Gap Insaat. The fertiliser complex is scheduled to start production in late 2004.
