SELF-SUFFICIENCY : "He felt with the force of a revelation that to throw up the clods of earth manfully is as beneficent as to revolutionize the world. It was not the matter of the work, but the mind that went into it, that counted - and the man who was not content to do small things well would leave great things undone. Ellen Glasgow

The LSTK contract has been awarded to Wuhuan Engineering , China which has been selected as the LSTK contractor for implementing the coal gasification and ammonia/urea packages of Talcher Fertilizers Ltd. after following rigorous tendering process.

In order to augment the domestic urea capacity, revival of closed fertilizer units of Fertilizer Corporation of India Ltd. (FCIL) has been top priority agenda of the Government of India. Accordingly, the Government has mandated TFL, a Joint Venture Company of nominated PSUs viz. RCF, CIL, FCIL and GAIL, to revive the Talcher unit of FCIL.

The project shall improve India's self-sufficiency in Urea and promote agriculture growth thereby reducing the import of urea in the country which shall in turn is expected to have a significant effect on the LNG imports besides providing employment opportunities to the local populace and also flipping the ancillary industries in the region. Further success of this technology shall open up new areas in the Indian energy context leading to alternative use of high ash Indian coal in the areas other than conventional thermal power production.
