Palembang (ANTARA News) - A new factory of state-owned fertilizer company Pupuk Sriwijaya (Pusri) in Palembang is expected to come in stream in August 2016.

Companys President Director Mulyono Prawiro said the new unit Pusri II-B has been almost 100 percent completed and will be ready for trial operation after a four month delay.

"Does not matter being delayed provided that there would be no more problem," Mulyono said here on Thursday.

He said the delay was as a result of problem in gas supply to feed the urea fertilizer plant.

The problem has been solved through cooperation with four gas suppliers - Pertamina EP, Medco Energy, Pertagas Niaga and Conoco Philips that supply 85 mmscfd of gas from the new factory.

"With the new unit the production capacity of PUSRI will total 2.65 million tons of urea and 1.85 million tons of ammonia a year," he said.

Pusri II-B with a new technology, apart from being environmentally friendly, is energy efficient.

Pusri IIB is to have an installed capacity of 2,000 tons per day or 660,000 tons per year of ammonia and 2,750 tons per day or 907,500 tons of urea per year.
