VIENNA (ICIS news)--Pakistan’s Fauji Fertilizer Co (FFC) expects production at its Port Qasim phosphate fertilizer plant to reach 550,000 tonnes in 2008 following extensive revamping work at the site, company officials said on Wednesday.
Speaking on the sidelines of the 76th International Fertilizer Industry Association (IFA) conference, marketing general manager A Chaudhary said that the plant, which restarted in March following a three-month turnaround, would now reach its expanded nameplate capacity in 2009.
It would then produce about 680,000 tonnes of diammonium phosphate (DAP) fertilizer.
Work began on the revamp and expansion in December 2007. Capacity has been expanded from the previous 450,000 tonnes/year, said Chaudhary.
The IFA conference runs from 19-21 May.
