Ammonia-urea revamping project completed in India

IFFCO, the Indian fertilizer producer and marketer, has signed off the official acceptance certificate of one of the largest fertilizer revamping projects recently carried out in India, involving 13 plants (8 ammonia and 5 urea, located on 3 separate sites) that were originally commissioned between the 1970s and the 1990s.

In 2014, IFFCO contracted Casale to devise and be the overall licensor of such revamp, the target being to reduce the energy consumption of all the plants concerned. After defining the revamping schemes, Casale was responsible for the basic design, supply of proprietary technologies and equipment, and check of detail engineering design performed by a local reputed company and site assistance.

The project was particularly challenging for several reasons: the tight schedule imposed, the large number of plants involved, and the necessity to develop common solutions for plants originally designed according to different technologies.

It took less than 26 months from contract signature to commission all the plants. A detailed report is being discussed at the FAI seminar in New Delhi, India, from 5 to 7 December 2018.
