It’s the third order in two years: Thyssen Krupp Industrial Solutions, the engineering and construction specialist of the Thyssen Krupp Group, has again won a follow-up order from the Hungarian fertilizer manufacturer Nitrogénmüvek to expand its production capacity.
Essen/Germany – A 1,150 ton per day nitric acid plant is to be built at Pétfürdö, around 100 kilometers southwest of Budapest. The contract value is in the high double digit million euro region. Completion is scheduled for 2017.
Nitrogénmüvek already operates two ammonium nitrate plants supplied by Thyssen Krupp Industrial Solutions at the Pétfürdö site. A plant to manufacture granulated calcium ammonium nitrate (CAN) and ammonium nitrate fertilizer is currently under construction.
Thyssen Krupp Industrial Solutions is responsible for engineering, procurement, construction, installation and commissioning of the new nitric acid plant.
Dr. Hans Christoph Atzpodien, CEO of Thyssen Krupp Industrial Solutions: “We are delighted at this third contract from Nitrogénmüvek in only two years and at the greatly increased scope compared with the previous orders. This is a sign of great satisfaction on the part of our customer and validation of our strategy of offering engineering, procurement and construction from a single source.”
