thyssenkrupp wins EPC contract for fertilizer complex in Egypt

thyssenkrupp’s plant engineering business has won a major order from the Egyptian chemical and fertilizer manufacturer NCIC (El Nasr Company for Intermediate Chemicals). The order for the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) of a new fertilizer complex was signed in Cairo on March 17, 2019. thyssenkrupp is realizing the project in a consortium with the Egyptian company PETROJET. The order value for thyssenkrupp is in the mid-three-digit million euro range.

“We have a particularly successful partnership with Egypt stretching back more than 160 years which offers great potential for the future. Our longstanding experience in plant construction, our strong local presence and close collaboration with our customers form the basis for our success and strong market position in the region,” says Marcel Fasswald, CEO of thyssenkrupp Industrial Solutions. “To date we have planned and built 16 of the 17 existing nitrogen fertilizer plants in the country and are delighted that another state-of-the-art plant will now be added,” says Ralf Richmann, CEO Fertilizer & Syngas Technologies.

The new fertilizer complex will be built in Ain El Sokhna, around 100 km southeast of Cairo, close to the existing NCIC phosphatic and compound fertilizer complex. It is expected to go into operation in 2022 and produce up to 440,000 tons of ammonia, 380,000 tons of urea and 300,000 tons of calcium ammonium nitrate (CAN) every year. The new plants are part of NCIC’s plans to expand its current product portfolio to include high-quality nitrogen fertilizer for local and export markets. Nitrogen is a key nutrient for plant growth and of critical importance for industrial agriculture.
