Increasing the yield: More effective fertilizer production
The world is hungrier than ever, putting enormous pressure on crop producers to increase their yields. The importance of fertilizers is only set to grow. Their production, however, is extremely energy-intensive. As a producer, you will be looking to optimize your operations, preparing your business for a CO2-neutral future and cutting operating costs. Give your business the edge with powerful, highly efficient compressor trains from MAN Energy Solutions.
Single source, full spectrum: The complete range of machinery to optimize your energy-intensive industry
MAN Energy Solutions compressors and drives are used in fertilizer plants around the world to generate ammonia, urea or nitric acid – basic chemicals used for fertilizers.
Whichever process you are invested in, our machinery is highly efficient, robust and reliable, giving you the edge in an industry which has a considerable impact on the environment. We support you in your efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and make sure your business runs smoothly. We not only supply the full range of compressors; we offer the steam turbines which mostly power production trains. In fact, you can order an entire train from us, tailor-made for your specific requirements.

NAMAX train for nitric acid processes
The nitric acid production process often requires a dual-pressure process. Our NAMAX train concept increases the power density and enables higher rotational speed to its process, thereby boosting the efficiency of nitric acid production. Since we have integrated our AR-MAX1 air compressor into the train, all components can run at the same speed, making the intermediate gearbox a thing of the past.
All components and services from a single source to the benefit of your business.
How you benefit:
- Reduced energy footprint
- Highest mechanical robustness, increased availability
- Compact modular train with lower weight
- Simpler logistics, installation, and commissioning
- More flexibility in train arrangement
- No gearbox-related frictional losses and maintenance costs
