HÀ NỘI — Phú Mỹ Fertiliser Plant, a member of the Petrovietnam Fertiliser and Chemicals Corporation (PVFCCo), began operation after more than one month of overall maintenance.
This was the largest and most complex maintenance, with a total of 5,252 work items. The maintenance period started on November 22, 2017, focusing on the combination between the existing plant and the NPK chemical technology plant to increase production capacity.
With this combination, the plant’s capacity has increased by 90,000 tonnes of NPK fertiliser per year, up some 20 per cent of its current capacity.
The plant, which is listed as DPM on the stock market, is estimated to have produced nearly 826,000 tonnes of fertiliser this year, exceeding 7 per cent, as compared to its yearly target. The trading volume of the plant is about 811,000 tonnes, surpassing 3 per cent of the year’s plan.
As a result, PVFCCo continues to hold more than 40 per cent of the national nitrogenous fertiliser market. — VNS
