Casale to supply key technologies to Deepak Fertilizer for a new Nitrates complex

18 December 2018

Casale is pleased to announce that it has been awarded a contract by Messrs Smartchem Technologies Limited (STL), a fully owned subsidiary of M/s Deepak Fertilisers and Petrochemicals Corporation Limited, India (DFPCL) for a new technical Ammonium Nitrate complex which includes:

  • one 900 MTD Nitric Acid plant, based on Casale’s proprietary DUALPURE process (Dual Pressure)
  • one 1143 MTD Ammonium Nitrate Solution plant incorporating Casale’s NitroPipe Pipe Reactor technology
  • one Prilling Unit capable to produce 970 MTD of either High Density Ammonium Nitrate (HDAN), based on Casale NitroPipe-HD technology, or the same amount of Low Density Ammonium Nitrate (LDAN), based on Casale NitroPipe-LD technology  (newly acquired  from ORICA).

The project will make full use of the original, mothballed, unused equipment originally supplied for another project in a totally different geographical area, which never materialized.

Casale will supply, for both units mentioned above, the process license, know-how, revalidation of the original Basic Design, review of the new Detail Design, proprietary items and site assistance.

This new order is a testament of Casale’s ability to act as a single source licensor of all key technologies and key services.
