Scope of the contracts

The EPCC contracts are for the construction of two state-of-the-art, natural gas-based fertilizer complexes in two eastern states in India. One plant is in Barauni, Bihar, while the second plant is in Sindri, Jharkhand. Each of these plants has the capacity to produce 2200 Tonnes Per Day (TPD) of ammonia and 3850 TPD of urea.

The consortium bagged the contracts after participation in the international competitive bidding. The two projects will be executed on EPCC Lump Sum Turn Key (LSTK) basis and will progress concurrently. TechnipFMC will lead the consortium and has been entrusted with the licensing, basic engineering, detailed engineering, construction and commissioning of the two complexes within a period of 36 months.

TechnipFMC has revealed that its teams in France and India will work closely with HURL to complete these projects.

Both of the plants will be constructed incorporating ammonia technology from Haldor Topsoe, Denmark and urea technology from Saipem, Italy. The two projects are valued over Rs. 3,800 Crores.

HURL is working to revive three fertilizer plants in India, at Gorakhpur Uttar Pradesh (UP), Barauni, Bihar and Sindri, Jharkhand. These projects are part of Government of India's "Make in India" initiative with the aim of making India self-sufficient in the field of urea production. Earlier in March 2018, HURL had awarded the contract for constructing a large-scale fertilizer complex in Gorakhpur, UP to Japan's Toyo Engineering Corporation.
