Perdaman Begins Construction on Urea Plant in Western Australia

Must Read

The recent project by Perdaman, which is expected to be operational in 2026 or 2027, aims to produce 2.3 million tonnes of urea annually for distribution across Asia, Brazil, and the United States.

Perdaman claims to be an innovative company that actively seeks new opportunities by being involved within a diverse range of markets, from investments in fertiliser production to the ownership and management of shopping centres.

With Australia already importing around 2.4 million tonnes of urea annually, Perdaman committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions at the urea plant to zero by 2050, demonstrating its commitment to preventing global warming.

Perdaman’s urea plant is designed to reduce pollution and the amount of carbon released during fertiliser production by using natural gas from the Scarborough Gas project by Woodside Energy.

The Australian Government has supported Perdaman’s $6 billion Pilbara urea project. It has signed agreements to provide more than $300 million in funding for the project’s and the region’s development.

“We are excited to be constructing Australia’s largest ever downstream manufacturing project, which represents a significant investment in Australia’s manufacturing sector,” said Vikas Rambal, Chief Executive of Perdaman.

Peter Bennett, CEO and Managing Director Clough, has stated that they are glad to be part of the project for Western Australia, and they’re looking forward to continuing the collaboration. He added that the project would provide favourable economic, financial, social and environmental outcomes for the communities around it.

Aside from environmental benefits, the project will distribute around 2,000 jobs during the construction and approximately 200 permanent jobs during the operational phase.

Although the project promotes positive economic and environmental effects, an Indigenous group has raised concerns about the impact of emissions from the plant.

Raelene Cooper, a member of a separate Indigenous group who is against the project, said in an emailed statement, “It is incredible, remarkable, and disgraceful -how do these people sleep at night?”
