Toyo awarded ammonia project in Indonesia

Gerald Ondrey

Toyo Engineering Corp. (Toyo; Chiba, Japan; www.toyo-eng.co.jp) has been awarded a contract to build an ammonia plant for PT Panca Amara Utama (PAU), a subsidiary of PT. Surya Esa Perkasa Tbk. (SEP), one of Indonesia’s leading LPG producing companies. The project involves construction of Ammonia Plant & related utility facilities for a 2,000-ton/d plant in Luwuk, Central Sulawesi. The contract has been awarded to Toyo on a turnkey basis, covering Engineering, Procurement, Construction (EPC), and commissioning services. The ammonia process will be based on technology by KBR (Houston; www.kbr.com). Toyo will carry out the project together with PT Inti Karya Persada Tehnik (IKPT), an Indonesian engineering firm part of the Toyo group. The plant is scheduled to be completed in the third quarter of 2015.

The project plan is to produce ammonia as a feedstock for downstream chemicals such as fertilizer, acrylonitrile, caprolactam and ammonium nitrate using natural gas produced from the Senoro and Toili natural gas fields in Central Sulawesi. The aim of the project is to realize effective utilization of domestically produced gas with enhanced value-add.

In Indonesia, Toyo is currently constructing a large fertilizer plant in Bontang, East Kalimantan, and also received in December 2012 an order for another fertilizer project to be built in Palembang, South Sumatra.

Demand for fertilizer is growing, especially in emerging countries, due to increasing demand for food that mirrors the expanding growth in global population. A lot of new fertilizer plants are now in the planning stages in countries including Indonesia.
