Topsoe lands contract for two ammonia plants in India

By Gerald Ondrey |

TechnipFMC has awarded Haldor Topsoe A/S (Lyngby, Denmark; www.topsoe.com) a contract for license and basic engineering for two gas-based ammonia plants for Hindustan Urvarak and Rasayan Ltd. (HURL). The two fertilizer complexes in Sindri and Barauni will each comprise 2,200 metric tons per day (m.t./d) ammonia and 3,850 m.t./d urea plants and will be realized by TechnipFMC, France, along with their consortium partners L&T Hydrocarbon Engineering, India.

The two new plants are part of the Indian government’s revival plans for the fertilizer sector to ensure Indian self-sufficiency in urea fertilizers. In 2015, Topsoe was awarded the ammonia technology license, basic engineering, technology, and catalysts for an ammonia plant for the Ramagundam Fertilizer Project. This 2,200-m.t./d ammonia plant is also a revival project scheduled to begin operation in the fourth quarter of 2018.

Hindustan Urvarak and Rasayan Ltd. (HURL) was incorporated on 15th June, 2016 as a joint venture company by Coal India Ltd. (CIL), NTPC Limited (NTPC) and Indian Oil Corporation Ltd. (IOCL) as the lead promoters with Fertilizer Corporation of India Limited (FCIL) and Hindustan Fertilizer Corporation Ltd. (HFCL) as other two partners. CIL, NTPC & IOCL are among the ‘Maharatnas’, that is, the large Public Sector undertakings having consistent and successful track records.
