Indonesia’s PT Pupuk Kalimantan Timur, or Kaltim, has awarded Japan’s Toyo Engineering a $577 million EPC contract to build a fertilizer plant in Bontang. The contract is for Engineering, Procurement, and Construction services on a lump-sum turnkey basis. The natural gas-fed fertilizer plant comprises a 2,700 mt/d ammonia unit and a 3,500 mt/d urea unit.
Toyo will also construct utility facilities at the plant and construction is likely to start this summer, and is expected to last something less than three years.
Kaltim has four fertilizer plants in Indonesia with a combined nameplate capacity of 2.98 million tpa of urea and 1.85 million tpa of ammonia.
