World Fertilizer,

KAZAZOT has selected Técnicas Reunidas as the contractor to develop a new ammonium, urea, nitric acid and ammonium nitrate complex.

With a total investment of approximately US$1 billion, the plant will be located in Aktau, Mangistau Oblast, in the southwestern side of Kazakhstan. Técnicas Reunidas will first carry out the engineering design under a FEED OBE contract (front-end engineering design/open book estimation). This work will be executed at its Madrid headquarters and it is expected to be completed in the current year. Once all work has been accomplished and the related financial resources have been obtained, Técnicas Reunidas will execute the full engineering, procurement and construction of the plant through an EPC contract.

The company has much experience in the conversion of FEED OBE contracts into EPC contracts. In this case, the initial FEED OBE contract, for €16.75 million, will be followed on completion by an EPC contract for the total construction of the facility, which will amount to about US$1 billion. The new world scale complex will have the capacity to produce 660 000 tpy of ammonia, 577 500 tpy of urea, 395 000 tpy of nitric acid and 500 000 tpy of ammonium nitrate. Once completed, the installation will become the largest combined fertilizer production complex in the Republic of Kazakhstan.
