Fertilizer Industrial Services – project support for fertilizer industry

We are a group of specialists in nitrogen fertilizer production technologies, covering ammonia, urea, nitric acid, ammonium nitrate, NPK as well as methanol process plants.

Currently, with our partners from the Netherlands and India we execute challenging projects in Asia, Middle East, Central America and Europe. From commissioning activities to engineering support, project management consultancy and process safety training we offer our support and expertize to the fertilizer industry when and were required.

We document our lesson learnt and we share it with the ammonia and urea communities on UreaKnowHow.com and AmmoniaKnowHow.com so we all can improve our skills and benefit by learning what we can do better in the future. Our site experience is translated and embedded in process safety courses for fertilizer operators that we develop together with Tech Safety Group.

AmmoniaKnowHow.com and UreaKnowHow.com promote compliance with health, safety and environment standards and good business practices in the fertilizer industry. The effects of safety incidents do not necessarily stop at the plants gates but can impact the environment outside the enterprise. In addition to the human cost and material damage, the reputation of the operations can be significantly impaired if urea and ammonia process safety management is not conducted appropriately.

We use our own experience in developing urea and ammonia psm guidances aimed to inform both stakeholders and employees in the nitrogen fertilizer industry of the hazards at different stages of the operations chain as well as recommended good safety practices to minimize the associated risks. “Prevention is better than cure” and effective safety promotion starts by getting things right within the plants management and operations.
