Maire Tecnimont has been awarded a contract for the development of a world-scale blue ammonia plant in the US by a “leading global chemicals producer”. Valued at approximately $230 million, the new plant features a 3,000 tonnes per day blue ammonia synloop. Completion is expected as early as 2025. Under the new Engineering, Procurement and Construction Management contract, Maire Tecnimont is responsible for “full engineering activities and supply of all materials and equipment as well as construction supervision services” (including the CCS requirements), with the construction itself to be executed by a third party.
This assignment is a concrete evidence of our strong positioning in the energy transition journey thanks to our technology-driven value proposition in these evolutionary times. [The] United States represents one of the highest potential markets to break the ice in industrial scale decarbonization initiatives.Pierroberto Folgiero, Maire Tecnimont Group CEO in the official press release, 22 March 2022
Maire Tecnimont (as well as subsidiaries Stamicarbon, MET Development and NextChem) are currently involved in a diverse range of ammonia production projects around the globe:
- in Paraguay, MET Development and FerSam Uruguay are developing a 100% hydroelectric fertiliser production plant near Itaipu Dam.
- in Iowa, Maire Tecnimont and Greenfield Nitrogen are developing a 100% wind-powered ammonia production plant.
- and in Kenya, MET Development, Stamicarbon and NextChem are developing a green-power-to-fertilisers plant, north of the capital Nairobi.
