GSFC awards Thyssenkrupp Industrial Solution (India) LSTK contract for Cryogenic Ammonia Storage Tank


Sikka, Gujarat: Gujarat State Fertilizers & Chemicals Limited (GSFC) has inked a contract with Thyssenkrupp Industrial Solutions (India) to build a Cryogenic Ammonia Storage Tank with associated facilities at their Shore Terminal in Sikka, Gujarat on LSTK basis.

The 10,000 MT cryogenic storage facility will support the fertiliser major's Di-Ammonium Phosphate complex in Sikka.

The project will use Thyssenkrupp's extensive experience of cup-in-tank double-integrity suspended deck design that has been successfully put to use in a number of similar Cryogenic storage across India & overseas over several decades.

GSFC's association with Thyssenkrupp Industrial Solutions dates back to the mid-eighties, when the latter built the other 2 Ammonia Storage Tanks in the same location, also on LSTK basis. Over the years, the engineering major has implemented a number of projects for GSFC including the 3rd train of the Di -Ammonium Phosphate plant; and recently, the Additional Facilities Project for the Company's new Di-Ammonium Phosphate train.

Mr P D Samudra, CEO & MD of Thyssenkrupp Industrial Solutions (India) said: 'The project demonstrates the trust our Customer has in us and we put on record our gratitude for the same. We are proud to implement this project for our customer, and this prestigious project amply demonstrates our leading position in this sector'.
