Garabogazkarbamid Plant, the large urea and ammonia plant in the city of Garabogaz in Turkmenistan’s western velayat of Balkan, produced around 900 thousand tons of urea over the past ten months of this year.
According to Turkmenistan’s Golden Age news outlet’s Tuesday report, the production rate of the enterprise has more than doubled compared to the same period last year.
Since its opening, the enterprise has already produced 1 million 381 thousand tons of concentrated nitrogen fertilizers, which were then delivered to agricultural producers in such countries as Bulgaria, Turkey, Romania and Spain.
Garabogazkarbamid plant was commissioned in 2018 and is designed for the annual production of 1.155 million tons of urea. The favorable geographical location of the enterprise on the Caspian coast allows the plant to export its products to global markets via sea and rail links.
The value of exports of Turkmen fertilizers in January-July of this year increased by 73.4% compared to the same period last year. The increase in output was primarily due to the production capacity of Garabogazkarbamid plant.
