thyssenkrupp Fertiliser Technology has signed a deal with Abu Qir Fertilisers Co to revamp the Abu Qir 3 urea granulation plant in Alexandria, Egypt.
thyssenkrupp Fertiliser Technology will supply the licence, process design package and proprietary equipment for the revamped plant.
UFT Fluid Bed Granulation is expected to increase the nameplate capacity from 2000 metric tonnes per day.
The horizontal cross flow scrubbing system minimises urea dust and ammonia emissions through appropriate handling of the exhaust streams from the urea granulation plant and from the urea synthesis plant.
Abu Qir Fertilisers Chairman and Managing Director Saad Ibrahim Abu El-Maati Hassan said with this expansion, Abu Qir Fertilisers will reinforce its position as a leading nitrogen fertiliser producer in Egypt.

“We chose thyssenkrupp again to use the most up-to-date technology. Their state-of-the-art process and know-how give a significant boost to our plant capacity while simultaneously lowering the power consumption per produced ton of granular urea and reducing direct emissions at the same time.”
thyssenkrupp Fertiliser Technology Managing Director Matthias Potthoff said the company is glad for the continued trust of its customer in its proven solutions.
“Our UFT Fluid Bed Granulation helps to increase productivity and to meet strict environmental standards, which becomes more and more important in the global fertiliser industry to make the plants and production future proof,” Potthoff said.
