German engineering company Thyssen Krupp Uhde was ordered to build new fertilizer plants for North America.
Dortmund/Germany – Thyssen Krupp Uhde received a major order for the design and construction of fertilizer plants in Port Neal (Iowa, US) and Donaldsonville (Louisiana, US) via its US business partner Uhde Corporation of America. The projects have been ordered by CF Industries Holdings, Inc. (CFI). Combined, the two orders exceed 1 billion euros.
An ammonia plant with a daily capacity of 2,200 metric tons, a urea plant (3,500 tons per day) and a urea granulation plant (3,500 tons per day) will be constructed in Port Neal, Iowa, a strategically important location in the midst of the mid west United States corn belt.
New Plants for Donaldsonville
An ammonia plant with a daily capacity of 3,300 metric tons, a urea plant and a urea granulation plant with the same capacity as in Port Neal will be constructed in Donaldsonville, Louisiana. Thyssen Krupp Uhde will also design and construct a nitric acid and a UAN (Urea Ammonium Nitrate) plant on the premises.
The expansion at the two facilities will reduce the dependence of the United States on fertilizer imports from the MENA region by using North American gas reserves Thyssen Krupp says.
