Stamicarbon bags urea plant contract in China

SITTARD, THE NETHERLANDS: Stamicarbon, the Licensing and IP Centre of Maire Tecnimont SpA, has been awarded two contracts for a new urea plant with Inner Mongolia Erdos Chemical Industry Group Co Ltd in the People’s Republic of China. One is for the license and process design package and the other is for supply of the high-pressure proprietary equipment for the plant.

The plant will have a capacity of 2,860 metric tonne per day (mtpd) of prilled urea and will be located in Qi Pan Jing, Ordos City, Inner Mongolia, PRC. Engineering work will be performed by China Chengda Engineering Company. Start-up is planned for 2014. The plant will use Stamicarbon’s Urea2000Plus technology, which features Stamicarbon’s unique Pool condenser and a high-pressure synthesis loop fabricated entirely in Safurex stainless steel.

This is the second urea project for which Stamicarbon has provided Inner Mongolia Erdos Chemical Industry Co Ltd with technology and equipment. The first was contracted in 2005 by a daughter company, Erdos United Chemicals Co Ltd. It comprised a revamp of two small urea plants based on Chinese technology into one new large plant using Stamicarbon’s Urea2000Plus technology. That plant was completed in 2009. With a capacity of 3,520 mtpd, it is still the biggest operational urea plant in China.
