ThyssenKrupp Industrial Solutions wins fertilizer contract in Hungary
The Hungarian fertilizer manufacturer Nitroge╠ünmu╠łvek Zrt. is extending its cooperation with plant engineering specialist ThyssenKrupp Industrial Solutions AG (Essen, Germany; www.thyssenkrupp-industrial-solutions.com). A granulation plant with a capacity of 1,550 ton/yr of ammonium nitrate (AN) or 1,960 ton/yr of calcium ammonium nitrate (CAN) is to start operation in Pe╠ütfu╠łrdo╠ł, roughly 100 km southwest of Budapest, in fall 2016. ThyssenKrupp Industrial Solutions will handle engineering and procurement of the process plant. The customer will carry out installation on site.
Nitroge╠ünmu╠łvek Zrt. is the only fertilizer producer in Hungary that manufactures its own ammonium. In Pe╠ütfu╠łdo╠ł, the company operates — amongst others — an ammonium nitrate plant, with a second currently under construction. Both plants are equipped with Uhde vacuum neutralization technology and will produce the feedstock for the new AN/CAN granulation plant.
“This is the second new contract in twelve months aimed at expanding production capacities at the Pe╠ütfu╠łrdo╠ł site. We are pleased that Nitroge╠ünmu╠łvek Zrt. is once again putting its faith in our expertise,” says Hans Christoph Atzpodien, CEO of ThyssenKrupp Industrial Solutions.
