Plant Engineering Maire Tecnimont Becomes Licensor for Urea Project in Sub-Saharan Africa
Maire Tecnimont’s license company Stamicarbon has been selected as the licensor for the first urea production facility in Sub-Saharan Africa. Under the terms of the contract, the company will deliver the Process Design Package for the Front-End Engineering and Design for a 4000 mtpd melt and granulation plant.
Milan/Italy – Maire Tecnimont, through its innovation and license company Stamicarbon, has been selected as the licensor for a urea project in Sub-Saharan Africa. This will be the first urea production facility in the Sub-Saharan Africa. Stamicarbon will deliver the Process Design Package for the Front-End Engineering and Design for a 4000 mtpd melt and granulation plant.
The urea melt plant with a pool reactor will use Stamicarbon’s MP Flash Design, which is one of Stamicarbon’s variants of melt concepts with improved energy efficiency, entailing a significant reduction of steam consumption. The minimal equipment items result in a significant reduction of the footprint and the overall capital cost of the plant. Less equipment also allows for a reduction in maintenance costs and OPEX savings.
