The Saudi Arabian Mining Company (Ma’aden) will use the dual-pressure ammonia process developed by Thyssen Krupp Industrial Solutions in the new “Phosphate 3” ammonia plant of its fertilizer complex.

Essen/Germany — As a subcontractor of the South Korean company Daelim, Thyssen Krupp Industrial Solutions will be providing the process license and extensive engineering, supply and monitoring services. The plant with a capacity of 3,300 tons 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 fertilizer complexes, will have a capacity of around 3.5 million tons per year.

The dual-pressure ammonia process is already being used in the first two ammonia plants at the “Phosphate” fertilizer complex. This dual-pressure ammonia process reduces energy consumption by up to 4 %, the engineering company claims. Since 1994, the company has developed and built new ammonia plants with a total production capacity of more than 14 million tons and modernized several existing ammonia plants.
