Japanese firms plan large fertilizer plant in Angola

By Gerald Ondrey |

Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd. (MHI; Tokyo, Japan; www.mhi.co.jp) and Toyo Engineering Corp. (Toyo; Chiba, Japan; www.toyo-eng.co.jp), Sojitz Corp. (Tokyo; www.sojitz.com), Sumitomo Corp. (Tokyo; www.sumitomocorp.co.jp), entered into an Early Work Agreement covering a portion of the engineering work (basic design, preparation of engineering documents and contracts, site surveys, and other work) for an ammonia and urea fertilizer plant with the Ministry of Geology, Mining and Industry (MGMI) of the Republic of Angola. The ammonia and urea plant will be constructed in Soyo, Zaire Province, about 300 km north of Luanda, Angola’s capital. Construction including production and shipping facilities is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2015. The planned daily production capacity is 2,000 tons of ammonia and 1,750 tons of urea. The plant will effectively utilize excess natural gas supplied to an LNG plant under construction in Soyo. Angola is dependent on fertilizer imports, and this is an important project that will contribute to a switch to domestic production through the effective use of domestic natural gas. Angola’s economy is growing rapidly, and the average GDP growth rate is about 11.5% from 2001 to 2010 thanks…
