Text size: A A

Canada-based SNC-Lavalin has been awarded a $625-million engineering, procurement and construction management (EPCM) contract to build a grassroots sulphuric-phosphoric acid complex in Eshidya Jordan. The project owner, JIFCO, is a joint venture owned by Jordanian Phosphate Mines Co. and the Indian Farmers Fertiliser Cooperative Ltd. JPMC is a producer of phosphoric acid and fertilizer, and IFFCO is the largest fertilizer producer and distributor cooperative in India. SNC-Lavalin will provide project management, design, equipment and construction management. The complex will have a capacity of 500,000 tonnes per year of phosphoric acid. It will also include a single-line sulphuric acid plant with a capacity of 4,500 tonnes per day, the largest single-stream unit in the world, according to the owner. Work began last month, and production is expected to start in late 2012.
