AMMAN — The Jordan Phosphate Mines Company (JPMC) is set to start preparing the necessary documents to float a tender for building ammonia tanks to enhance safety in the company’s industrial complex in Aqaba and provide the highest public safety requirements in this field as per international standards, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported.

At a board meeting held Monday, JPMC Chairman Mohammad Thneibat said the project, the cost of which is estimated at about $40 million, will be implemented within two years.

He called for holding meetings with local technicians and specialists, and bringing an expert in the field from abroad to prepare the required technical specifications for this type of tanks and examine the possibility of converting the current ammonia tanks into phosphoric acid tanks to enable the company to increase the storage of phosphoric acid to meet the expansion of production in order to increase foreign sales of the acid, as decided by the board of directors.

Thneibat underlined the importance of the project, which is part of the board of directors’ efforts to develop and modernize work sites, and meet the highest public safety requirements, especially in the industrial complex.

Thneibat also asked the JPMC CEO to expedite the establishment of the advanced ambulance center, approved earlier by the JPMC’s board of directors to be created in the industrial complex at the company’s expense, and equip it with all necessary supplies through the company’s Medical Services Directorate, in coordination with the Royal Medical Services, to serve the southern industrial zone in Aqaba.

JPMC CEO Abdulwahab Rawad stressed the importance of the new project in the industrial complex in Aqaba, noting that the new projects will contribute to enhancing public safety procedures at its facilities, maintaining workers’ safety and ensuring that operations are running smoothly. اضافة اعلان
