Garabogazkarbamid plant, the large urea and ammonia plant in the city of Garabogaz in Turkmenistan’s western velayat of Balkan, has produced 888.7 thousand tons of urea fertilizer since the beginning of this year, the country's official media reported on Monday.
The plant’s products sold at the State Commodity and Raw Materials Exchange of Turkmenistan are reportedly at high demand among foreign and local businesses.
Garabogazkarbamid plant is designed to annually produce 1.155 million tons of urea and 660 thousand tons of synthetic ammonia. Natural gas is the main raw material of the plant.
The geographical location of the enterprise on the Caspian coast allows the plant to export its products to global markets via sea and rail links.
Commissioned in September 2018, the plant is equipped with leading Danish, Italian, Dutch and American technologies.
