Thyssenkrupp fertiliser production technology wins Ma’aden contract

Ma’aden will use the dual-pressure ammonia process developed by Thyssenkrupp Industrial Solutions in the new ‘Phosphate 3’ ammonia plant at its fertiliser complex.

Since 1994, alone, Thyssenkrupp Industrial Solutions has developed and built new ammonia plants with a total production capacity of more than 14 million tonnes and modernised several existing ammonia plants.

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.
