By Gerald Ondrey |

Toyo Engineering Corp. (Toyo; Chiba, Japan; www.toyo-eng.co.jp) and its consortium partner Daewoo Nigeria Ltd. have jointly received letter of award to build world’s largest single train urea plant from Indorama Eleme Fertilizer and Chemicals Ltd. The proposed facility shall be built at Indorama Eleme Petrochemicals Limited (IEPL) existing petrochemicals complex at Port Harcourt, River state, Nigeria and is scheduled for startup by the last quarter of 2015. The letter of award is the culmination of rigorous evaluation subsequent to competitive FEED (Front End Engineering Design) works. The proposed facility consists of manufacture of 2,300 ton/d of ammonia and 4,000 ton/d of granulated urea from natural gas feedstock employing technology licenses from KBR (Houston; www.kbr.com) and Toyo. Toyo’s urea synthesis (ACES21) and granulation technologies have been successfully accepted at several plants worldwide and are known for lower utilities consumption. Toyo is not only a licensor for the urea technologies but has also been a world leading EPC contractor and is currently constructing fertilizer plants in Venezuela and Indonesia. This is the first project for Toyo in Nigeria.
