As a subcontractor of the South Korean company Daelim Industrial Co, Seoul, Thyssenkrupp Industrial Solutions is providing the process licence and extensive engineering, supply and monitoring services.
The plant – which has a capacity of 3,300 tonnes per day and is located near the port of Ras al Khair on the Arabian Gulf – is scheduled to be completed in early 2022. In total, the three Ma’aden ammonia plants, which are part of one of the world’s largest integrated fertiliser complexes, will have a capacity of around 3.5 million tonnes per year.
The Thyssenkrupp dual-pressure ammonia process is already being used with great success in the first two ammonia plants at the ‘Phosphate’ fertiliser complex. The plants are highly reliable and eco-friendly. This dual-pressure ammonia process reduces energy consumption by up to 4%.
“This third contract to build a new ammonia plant intensifies the already outstanding collaboration and great trust between Ma’aden and Thyssenkrupp Industrial Solutions.It reflects our position as a technology leader for super-size ammonia plants and confirms Thyssenkrupp’s reputation in the industrial sector,” says Ralf Richmann, CEO of the fertiliser technologies business unit at Thyssenkrupp Industrial Solutions.
