Largest single order in company’s history: The Umm Wual phosphate project in northern Saudi Arabia, concerned with the conveyance of the country’s rich deposits of phosphates, is currently being implemented on behalf of Ma’aden (Saudi Arabian Mining Company). The deposits will, among other things, be processed to produce NPK and DAP fertilisers. To this end, Ma‘aden has commissioned the construction of a new plant for the production of fertilisers at the Waad Al-Shamal phosphate industrial complex. The plant will be designed and built by the Spanish industrial plant manufacturer Intecsa Ingenieria Industrial SA. Ma’aden Phosphates Company, one of the largest fertiliser producers in the world, will act as plant operator.
Up to Spring 2015, Friatec AG – Division Rheinhütte Pumpen will supply a total of 85 complete pump units for this plant.
