GSFC to expand DAP capacity in Sikka, to invest Rs 250 cr

30 Jan 2012

State PSU Gujarat State Fertiliser and Chemical (GSFC) is planning to expand the capacity of its Di-Ammonium Phosphate (DAP) facility in Sikka by 0.4 million tonnes at an investment of Rs 250 crore by 2014-15. The Sikka facility in Jamnagar district of the state currently has production capacity of 1.1 MT per annum. The company presently imports ammonium and phosphoric acid for manufacturing DAP. The expansion at Sikka has been undertaken to bridge the burgeoning demand supply gap. According to industry estimates, the demand for urea is around 29 MT per annum, whereas its annual production in India is only around 20-21 MT. The demand-supply gap for complex fertilisers (Phosphate-P and Potassium-K) is 5-7 MT per annum. Meanwhile, the chemical major will soon commission a Methanol manufacturing facility having annual capacity of 1.6 lakh tonnes in Vadodara. The company has invested Rs 300 crore on this project.
