PROJECT & PRODUCTS

OMIFCO fertilizer complex consists of two trains of Ammonia & Urea plants along with associated offsite & Utilities plants. Ammonia Train-1 was commissioned on 28th March 2005 & Urea Train-1 was commissioned on 12th April 2005. Ammonia Train-2 was commissioned on 14th May 2005 & Urea Train-2 was commissioned on 28th May 2005. Preliminary acceptance test was conducted on 14th July 2005. First ammonia ship export was achieved on 7th June 2005 and first Urea ship export was achieved on 14th June 2005

Since commissioning, both trains of Ammonia & Urea Plants are operating consistently at more than installed capacity. Even during the first year of commissioning, both trains of Ammonia & Urea have achieved more than 100 % capacity utilization. OMIFCO has established several own bench marks in the area of production and capacity utilization. Table below indicated the capacity utilization achieved in Ammonia & Urea Plants since commissioning.

As a commitment to continuous improvement in productivity & environment, OMIFCO has been awarded ISO-9001:2000 certification by BVQI since June ’2008 for its Quality Management System.

The prime function of the complex is to produce ammonia and urea. This grass-root project consists of an Ammonia/ Urea fertilizer complex, together with all utility and off-site facilities (including the marine facilities) necessary to make the complex completely self-sufficient during construction or under any operational mode, without back-up facilities from any other source.

OMIFCO Fertilizer Complex has two Streams of Ammonia Plant and two Streams of Urea Plant. Annual capacity for Urea and Ammonia is 1.652 million MT and 1.15 million MT respectively. This project was built at a total cost of US$ 960 million.

The trial production commenced from plant one in March, 2005 and within a very short time of two months, the entire complex was commissioned and commercial production commenced from 14th July.
