JESA wins a proficiency study for a factory in Australia

JESA Technologies announced today that it has been awarded an efficiency study for a MAP/DAP granulation plant for the Ammaroo phosphate project in the Northern Territory of Australia.

The site is in the West Georgina Basin, approximately 220 km southeast of Tennant Creek, 270 km northeast of Alice Springs, 95 km from the Adelaide-Darwin railway and 1000 km from Darwin. The plant will be capable of producing 960,000 Mt/year of granular fertilizer based on 50% MAP product and 50% DAP product.

This project aims to be a fully integrated fertilizer complex comprising:

  • Extraction of phosphate rock on site.
  • A phosphate rock upgrading plant.
  • A phosphoric acid plant.
  • A sulfuric acid factory.
  • An ammonia plant.
  • Granulation plant.
  • Utilities, which include raw water, water treatment plant (demineralisation and reverse osmosis), power station, auxiliary boilers and air compressors, storage, import and export by railway, etc.
  • Auxiliary services include the gas pipeline, the railway line, the accommodation village and the airfield.
  • Darwin’s infrastructure, which includes port facilities, workshop, offices and control room.

David Ivell, Managing Director of JESA Technologies, said: “We are very pleased to be working with Verdant Minerals on this decomposition study. This will be our second million tonne per year MAP/DAP plant in Australia, after the success of the project at Phosphate Hill”.

Chris Tziolis, Managing Director of Verdant Minerals, commented: “We are pleased to welcome JESA to the Ammaroo project. We look forward to incorporating JESA’s considerable granulation expertise into this project. which could play an important role in securing supply to Australia and the region of essential ammonium phosphate based fertilizers in the future.
