Construction works of Navoyazot’s new nitric acid plant (Navoy, Uzbekistan) is progressing unhindered. All major equipment has been installed, the main buildings erected, all piping prefabricated and 80% of them already installed. The rate of progress is fully in line with the expected start-up at the beginning of next year.

The 1500 MTD, 60% acid strength plant is based on Casale’s NA2000 Dual Pressure technology and it is the 2nd unit awarded. It is also the next coming on stream since the company has entered this market. Two more plants are in the pipeline.

Casale, besides supplying the licence and know-how, is also the EPC contractor for the whole project.
