Ma’aden restarts Ras Al Khair ammonia plant following technical repairs

RIYADH, SAUDI ARABIA: Saudi Arabian Mining Company (Ma’aden) said that its subsidiary Maaden Phosphate Company (MPC) has completed the technical repairs of the heat exchanger and successfully resumed the operations of the ammonia plant located in Maaden complex at Ras Al Khair city as of 4 Sept. The company had shutdown the plant for technical repairs on 20 Aug.

The plant produces ammonia which is used in the manufacturing of diammonium phosphate (DAP). The shutdown had no impact on production at the DAP plant due to the availability of sufficient inventory of ammonia. Consequently, this shutdown has not affected the company’s ability to meet its obligations towards its customers nor resulted in significant financial impact, it said.

MPC is a limited liability company co-owned by Ma’aden (70 percent) and Saudi Basic Industries Corporation (SABIC) (30 percent).
