The scope of the revamp of Abu Qir 3 includes a capacity increase from the current production of 1940 tpd currently to 2370 tpd and a reduction in emissions from the melt plant absorbers.
The design capacity of the unit will amount to 2200 tpd of urea once complete, which will increase production capacity by more than 70%.
