Stamicarbon signs licensing and equipment supply contracts for urea plant

Published by
World Fertilizer,

Stamicarbon has announced that it has signed contracts with Hubei Sanning Chemical Industrial Co. Ltd for the licensing of technology and the delivery of proprietary equipment for a grassroots urea plant.

The plant will have a capacity of 2334 metric tpd, and will be constructed in Zhijiang, Hubei, China. This project already represents the second plant contracted in China within one year. Stamicarbon claims that the plant will also use its novel Ultra-Low Energy Design, which will reduce steam consumption in urea plants by approximately 40%. This is a significant reduction in energy costs and therefore in OPEX, whilst also reducing the carbon footprint substantially compared to other types of urea plant.

In the statement, Stamicarbon claims that the scope of the contract includes the license, the process design package (PDP), and the delivery of high pressure equipment and associated services for the urea plant. The scope of the high pressure equipment includes the new Safurex® Pool Reactor design, which was adapted and perfected for the Ultra-Low Energy Design. The finishing will be prilling.

Stamicarbon claims that the plant is expected to start up at the end of next year.
