Saipem selected as EPC contractor for Perdaman Industries’ new urea plant in Western Australia

By Mary Page Bailey |

Saipem S.p.A. (San Donato Milanese, Italy), in a 50% joint venture with Clough, has been selected as the exclusive EPC contractor for the development of Perdaman Industries’ urea plant on the Burrup Peninsula, approximately 20 km northwest of Karratha, on the coastline of Western Australia. The conclusion of the contract is subject to a Final Investment Decision (FID), final signature of an EPC contract and all governmental and regulatory authorizations.

The scope of work of the joint venture includes engineering, construction, pre-commissioning and commissioning of the urea plant including all utilities, urea handling, storage tanks and site civil buildings.

The facility will consist of the urea fertilizer plant and related facilities with a capacity of 2 million metric tons per year (m.t./yr) of urea and will include a water treatment plant, a power plant (100MW), as well as urea storage, loading and unloading facilities. The urea will be shipped from Pilbara Ports Authority to local and offshore markets, with 50 to 100 shiploads expected per year.

Alessandro Tattini, APAC Area Manager of Saipem’s Onshore E&C Division commented: “Saipem has a strategic interest in Australia as well as strong international expertise in urea/ammonia. Thanks to this joint venture, we are partnering with a company such as Clough who has been delivering projects in the country for more than a century. This joint venture looks forward to bringing one of the largest urea projects in the world into production for our client Perdaman”.
