Technical Grade Ammonium Nitrate (TGAN)

TGAN is most commonly used as the key raw material for the manufacture of civil explosives.

In 2017, Egypt Hydrocarbon Corporation (EHC) is intending to start up production of TGAN at its plant in Ain Sokhna, Egypt. EHC has chosen Trammo as the sole supplier of its ammonia needs as well as the sole marketer of its TGAN. Ain Sokhna is a state-of-the-art plant with an annual capacity of 340,000 metric tons, primarily intended for export. The facility is the only one in the region capable of meeting the highest standards in terms of quality of product, logistics, and raw material supply.

In order to ship TGAN at competitive prices to the Middle East, South East Asia, Australia, Africa, and the Americas, warehouses are planned for locations on both the Mediterranean and Red Sea. Shipments of 1 metric ton big bags, either in containers or by bulk carrier vessel, can be delivered in quantities of 5,000 metric tons or more. Containers are best suited for small and medium-sized requirements. Regular shipments from Ain Sokhna can be scheduled to meet demand from our customers.
