ThyssenKrupp Uhde set to build fertiliser plants in US

ThyssenKrupp Uhde has received a major order for the design and construction of fertiliser plants in Port Neal, Iowa, and Donaldsonville, Louisiana, via its US business partner Uhde Corporation of America.

The projects — which have a combined value of more than €1bn (£803m) — have been ordered by CF Industries Holdings.

An ammonia plant with a daily capacity of 2,200 metric tons plus a urea plant and a urea granulation plant, each with a daily capacity of 3,500 tons per day, will be constructed in Port Neal, Iowa.

An ammonia plant with a daily capacity of 3,300 metric tons plus a urea plant and a urea granulation plant with the same capacity as in Port Neal will be constructed in Donaldsonville, Louisiana. ThyssenKrupp Uhde will also design and construct a nitric acid and a urea ammonium nitrate plant on the premises.
