Technip, within the framework of a cooperation partnership with Haldor Topsøe, was awarded a contract to provide basic- and front-end engineering services on a Petrobras grassroots fertilizer complex to be located at Uberaba, State of Minas Gerais, Brazil. The fertilizer complex will include a 1,500 metric tpd ammonia unit based on Haldor Topsøe technology, and the complete utilities and offsite systems necessary for operating the complex.
The basic-engineering design will be developed by Haldor Topsøe and Technip at Technips operating center in Rome, Italy, while the Technip operating center in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, will execute the front-end engineering design (FEED).
Overall engineering activities are scheduled to be completed within the first half of 2012. The complex is scheduled to be in operation within the second semester of 2015. HP
