A Japanese/local consortium in late September was awarded the contract to build a fertiliser plant in the western province of Kermanshah. The client on the project is Kermanshah Petrochemical Industries Company (KPIC), in which National Petrochemical Company (NPC)is a principal shareholder (MEED 6:9:02; 8:3:02)
The successful consortium comprises Tomen Corporationand Kawasaki Heavy Industries, both of Japan, UK-based MW Kelloggand the local Namvaran. The group won the deal against competition from Germany's Krupp Uhdeand Japan's Toyo Engineering Corporation. The facility is set to produce 1,200 tonnes a day (t/d) of ammonia and 2,000 t/d of urea.
KPIC, which is 33 per cent owned by NPC with the remainder held by the private sector, plans to sell the plant's output domestically.
