Establishnment of complex fertilisers production in Turkmenistan
Initiator: Turkmenkhimiya Group
Within the programme on increasing chemical potential of the country, a series of agreements were signed between Turkmekhimiya and foreign companies. In early 2019, the national concern Turkmenkhimiya announced the start of an international tender on design and turn-key construction of a unit for production of complex mineral fertilisers. Construction of Production of fertilisers in Turkmenistan the unit is planned to take place in the Turkmenabat Chemical Plant in the Lebapsky district. Besides, the international tenders were announced on selection of contractors for design and construction of a facility for production of granular ammonia sulphate and a facility to produce nitrogen-sulphate fertiliser Urea-ES at the plant Tedzhencarbamide. Turkmenkhimiya and Thyssenkrupp Industrial Solutions agreed on understanding in execution of repair and rehabilitation works for Tedzhencarbamide to reach its nameplate TURKMENISTAN capacity. Turkemenkhimiya, Turkish GAP Insaat, and Thyssenkrupp Industrial Solutions concluded a MoU on the project for construction of a chemical complex in the city of Mary. The document confirms the intentions of the parties to build facilities for production of ammonia, carbamide, nitric acid, and ammonia nitrate.
