The state concern "Turkmenhimiya" has announced an international tender for carrying out repair and restoration work at the "Tejenkarbamid" plant, which is located in the Akhal velayat. The corresponding announcement was posted in the newspaper "Neutral Turkmenistan" on December 25.
Applications are accepted within 30 days.
At a meeting of the Cabinet of Ministers on September 16, Deputy Prime Minister Charymyrat Purchekov , who oversees the construction, industrial and energy complex, reported to President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov that proposals for a major reconstruction of the Tejenkarbamid plant and the calculation of capital investments for the products manufactured by the enterprise were being studied.
In the summer of 2020 the head of state reported «Marykarbamid», «Tejenkarbamid» and that urea fertilizer factories specializing in the production of «Garabogazkarbamid» provide the needs of the domestic market and exports the bulk of its products abroad.
However, in February of this year, Berdimuhamedov criticized the work of the head of the State Concern "Turkmenhimiya". According to the head of state , the capacity of the Tezhenkarbamid plant is used only by 53.7%, the Marykarbamid plant - by 62.5%, and the Maryazot production association - by only 23%.
In April 2021, the correspondents of the Chronicle of Turkmenistan reported that residents of Tejen began to come en masse to the Ashgabat eye clinic with complaints of pain in the eyes. One of the ophthalmologists said that the reason could be in the deteriorating environment and, in particular, in emissions from a plant for the production of urea and ammonia fertilizers located on the outskirts of the city. Although another specialist believed that the trachoma epidemic could be the cause of the burning sensation in the eyes.
Tejencarbamide is one of the first urea plants in Turkmenistan. It was launched in 2005 in the city of Tejen. Its design capacity is 350 thousand tons per year.
