MILAN, ITALY: Maire Tecnimont has signed a memorandum of intent (MoI) with EuroChem, a leading global fertilizer company.

According to the MoI, Tecnimont SpA and Tecnimont Russia LLC, both subsidiaries of Maire Tecnimont, have been selected to carry out the Early Works Services with subsequent extension into Engineering Procurement and Construction activities for a new urea and ammonia production facility at Kingisepp, in Northwest Russia, in case the EuroChem’s investment plans go ahead as planned.

The proposal from Maire Tecnimont provides the value up to approximately €1 billion for the new combined urea and ammonia plant with capacity about 3,000 tonnes of ammonia and 4,000 tonnes of urea per day, once fully ramped up.

Under the terms of the Early Works agreement, Maire Tecnimont Group will carry out preliminary engineering and site surveying work at the brownfield site adjacent to EuroChem’s existing production facilities at Kingisepp.

“We are pleased to take the next step toward considering building this world scale plant with Maire Tecnimont, a company that we have worked with closely for many years. Expansion of production facilities is a strategic goal for us and reinforces our growing position in the fertilizer industry,” said Petter Ostbo, Chief Executive Officer of EuroChem Group.

“We are eager to keep on supporting a prestigious client such as EuroChem in its long-term expansion plan. With this important project we reinforce our position in the fertilizer business, while our long-lasting industrial footprint in Russia is further confirmed,” added Pierroberto Folgiero, Maire Tecnimont Chief Executive Officer.
