Thyssenkrupp has received a new order from the state-owned Brunei Fertilizer Industries.

The contract for the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) of a new fertiliser production facility was signed on 26 August 2017 and is expected to come into effect later this year. The new greenfield fertiliser complex will have a production capacity of 2,200 tonnes of ammonia and 3,900 tonnes of urea per day. It will be located in the Sungai Liang Industrial Park right next to Brunei’s well-established oil and gas industry.

Peter Feldhaus, CEO, industrial solutions business area, Thyssenkrupp, said: “We are proud to work together with Brunei Fertilizer Industries to support the country’s transformation into a diversified industrial economy. Being selected to develop this lighthouse project is an important milestone for our fertiliser plant business. This major order will further strengthen our market position and growth in the Asia Pacific region.”

Brunei is one of the world’s largest producers and exporters of natural gas. The new plant project will support the government’s long-term development strategy to diversify the country’s economy. As one of the key investment sectors, the development of downstream activities in the petrochemical industry will help better utilise the main economic resources available – oil and gas.

Dato Bahrin Abdullah, chairman, Brunei Fertilizer Industries, commented: “We have chosen Thyssenkrupp for our investment project as the company combines vast experience in engineering, procurement and construction with proven and cost-efficient fertiliser production technology, ensuring the highest environmental standards. Together, we will help accelerate the nation’s economic growth in a sustainable way and expand employment opportunities for its people.”

The fully integrated, state-of-the-art fertiliser complex will comprise an ammonia plant with a daily capacity of 2,200 metric tonnes as well as a urea plant and a urea granulation plant both with a capacity of 3,900 tonnes per day. After its planned completion in 2021, the plant will use parts of Brunei’s large natural gas reserves as feedstock to produce high-quality nitrogen fertiliser mainly for the export market. Nitrogen is an essential nutrient for plant growth and therefore a key agricultural input.

Thyssenkrupp’s scope of supply for this fertiliser complex will include the engineering, supply of equipment, erection, supervision of construction and commissioning as well as various offsite and related utility systems.
