By Huseyn Hasanov - Trend
The Japanese Mitsubishi Corporation installed the main part of the equipment necessary for commissioning the plant for the production of ammonia and carbamide in Garabogaz city of the Balkan province of Turkmenistan, said an article of the online newspaper of the Turkmen Oil and Gas Complex.
At present, start-up work is underway. The new chemical plant has a convenient location - on the shores of the Caspian Sea. The finished products can be supplied to consumers both by vehicles and ships.
The most advanced technologies, capable of ensuring ecological purity and high efficiency of gas treatment without emissions into the atmosphere will be used at each stage of production of mineral fertilizers.
The technologies of the Danish Haldor Topse and the US UOP LLC will be used in ammonia production. The technology of the Italian Saipem company will be used in the carbamide synthesis section.
The technology of the Netherlands’ Uhde Fertilizer Technology will be used while granulating the concentrated carbamide solution.
The new carbamide plant will produce mineral fertilizers from raw materials supplied via the East-West gas transmission system.
The daily capacity of the enterprise is 3,500 tons, while the annual capacity is 1.1 million tons of carbamide.
The commissioning of the Garabogaz plant for the production of mineral fertilizers will significantly increase the capacity of the Turkmen chemical industry, which will lead to an increase in the export capabilities.
The annual volume of nitrogen fertilizers produced in the country will exceed 2 million tons.
Around a third of these products will be supplied to the domestic market, the rest - for export.
Earlier it was reported that the plant will be the biggest chemical enterprise in the country and the contract will be estimated at approximately $1.3 billion.
