At a glance

Yara Norge AS has chosen Técnicas Reunidas for the Nitric Acid Plant in Norway, with a contract value of 85 million euros. This project reflects Yara's commitment to value creation through expansion. Técnicas Reunidas, with expertise in chemical technology, is a leading international company in engineering and construction.

Yara Norge AS has selected Técnicas Reunidas (TR) for the Nitric Acid Plant, as part of its expansion Project on Heroya Industrial Park, in Porsgrunn, Norway. The contract value amounts approximately 85 million euros.
The Project confirms Yara´s commitment to create value through brownfield expansion and debottlenecking projects.

Yara, based on a Front End Engineering Package also previously developed by TR, has chosen TR not only as the main contractor for the whole project, but also has selected TR’s technology and “know how” in Nitric Acid (with a design capacity of 1.050 MTPD) licensed by its 100% owned subsidiary company ESPINDESA. This fact consolidates TR technologies as a reference in this sector in the world market.

Técnicas Reunidas has spent 40 years developing chemical technology. Throughout these years, it has built more than 60 plants with entirely Spanish technologies in fertilizer manufacturing, nitric acid and ammonium nitrate explosives for civil
applications, ranking among the best in the world. TR is currently working for YARA in the execution of a complete grass roots Nitric Acid and Ammonium Nitrate Project in Australia with expected start-up during the second quarter of 2015.
This new Nitric Acid plant in Norway will mainly supply raw material for the development of NPK Fertilizer installation of YARA.

Yara Norge AS is a Norwegian-based multinational chemical company. Its largest business area is the production of nitrogen fertilizer, although it also encompasses the production of dry ice, nitrates, ammonia, urea and other nitrogen-based
