The new plant will be integrated into the existing site on the south coast of the Marmara Sea. The contract is worth an approximate total of €141 million. Commissioning is scheduled for early 2015.

The new complex will comprise a nitric acid plant with a capacity of 1,195 metric tons (m.t.) per day. This nitric acid can optionally be used to produce 2,000 m.t./d of granular CAN fertilizer with a nitrogen content of 26% or 1,550 m.t./d of ammonium nitrate (AN) fertilizer. In addition, Uhde is also engineering and supplying an atmospheric ammonia storage tank with a capacity of 20,000 m.t. The plants will be built on a turnkey basis.

For Uhde, this is the second major contract to be received from BAGFAS. The first was for a mixed fertilizer (NPK) plant, a nitrophosphate (NP) plant and a diammonium phosphate (DAP) plant built on a turnkey basis at the same site back in 1980.
