NEW DELHI (ICIS news)--India’s Gujarat State Fertilizers & Chemicals (GSFC) on Tuesday invited global expressions of interest (EOIs) from the suppliers of rock phosphate for pre-qualification to participate in a tendering competition.

“It shall be mandatory for existing approved vendors to undergo this registration process,” the company said.

GSFC planned to import 100,000-150,000 tonnes of rock phosphate on a staggered basis over the course of a year. It would require this feedstock in parcel sizes of 15,000-20,000 tonnes for delivery at a port in Gujarat State, the company added.

The last date for submission of EOIs by miners, processors and international traders was 11 April. The company gave specifications for both high- and the low-grade feedstock with minimum phosphate content of 34% and 31.5% respectively. 

GSFC operates diammonium phosphate (DAP) plants at Baroda and Sikka in Gujarat State.
