The wholly owned facilities are fully integrated for nitrogen-based products, and have Yara's and Europe's largest installed production capacity for NPK complex fertilizers based on the nitrophosphate route. The site has one ammonia plant, three nitric acid plants, two NPK plants and one calcium nitrate (CN) plant. The facilities produce a wide range of NPK and CN product grades, developed to meet the needs of crop fertilization under various climates and soil conditions. Approximately half of the volumes produced are sold overseas, mainly in Asia. The balance is sold in various countries in Europe.
The ammonia, nitric acid and fertilizer facilities also produce a range of gases and chemicals for industrial applications.
The site has large storage facilities and efficient loading facilities for bulk deliveries. Three bagging units allow bagging of big-bags (NPK and CN) and pallets (CN). The bagged products are loaded onto vessels, containers and trucks.
Significant volumes of dry bulk raw materials are required to enable the wide range of product grades in Porsgrunn, making Porsgrunn one of the largest ports in Norway.
