Abu Dhabi-based ILF Consulting Engineers said it has secured a key project management consultancy (PMC) services contract from Kemapco Arab Fertilizers & Chemicals Industries Company in Jordan for its new ammonia tanks.
Kemapco’s production facilities currently have a production capacity of 175 Kt of potassium nitrate (NOP) fertilizer and nitric acid per year, which covers approximately 8% of total global NOP demand.
At present, the Jordanian group receives its supply of ammonia from a third party company via pumps and pipelines.
In order to increase independence from suppliers, the construction of a new ammonia storage tank with a capacity of 20,000 Mt is being planned in the economic zone of Aqaba.
ILF said it has been commissioned by Kemapco to provide project management, conceptual/tender design for the EPC contract as well as construction and commissioning supervision services.
The scope of work includes construction of a double-walled, cooled ammonia storage tank along with loading and unloading facilities and all other related equipment, it added.-TradeArabia News Service
