The carbon dioxide extraction tower, the first super-heavy equipment of Bangladesh’s Ghorashal-Polash Urea Fertilizer Project (GPUFP), the country’s largest and first green manure plant, has was successfully installed on Tuesday.

Engineers and workers from China National Chemical Engineering & Construction Corporation Seven Ltd successfully lifted and installed the tower, which is 68.5 meters high and weighs 447.5 tons.

After “dressing”, its lifting weight reaches 602.7 tons, being the tallest and heaviest equipment in the fertilizer plant located in Narsingdi district, about 51 km northeast of the national capital Dhaka.

The Chinese company said the smooth lifting of the tower laid a solid foundation for lifting other super-heavy equipment later.

With the main crane clinging slowly and the auxiliary crane working cautiously, the carbon dioxide extraction tower was lifted at the same time, which won the appreciation of the Japanese enterprise partner Mitsubishi Heavy Industries and Bangladesh Chemical Industries Corporation.

Despite the COVID-19 outbreak, the Chinese company’s hundreds of engineers and skilled workers, together with Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, worked around the clock while strictly following health and safety guidelines to complete the mega project as planned.

Launched in August 2020, the project is expected to be completed in 2023. Upon completion, it will become the largest fertilizer factory in Bangladesh and the first-ever green manure factory in Bangladesh, with no emission of pollutants into the environment.

“All the carbon dioxide will be captured. No carbon dioxide will go into the surrounding air, and other liquid effluents will not go into surface waters outside before treatment. It can be said that it is the first green manure (factory) in Bangladesh,” GPUFP project manager Mohammad Rajiour Rahman Mollick told Xinhua earlier.

With an estimated daily production capacity of 2,800 metric tons, officials said the plant will help Bangladesh meet growing demand for fertilizer in its efforts to ensure food security.
