Talcher Fertilizer Unit is located about 126 kms away from Bhubaneswar, the capital of Orissa State and in the district of Angul. The Unit was established at Talcher due to abundance of coal that is used as feedstock.


This unit was approved by Govt. of India in December 1969, with a project cost of Rs.71.18 crores and industrial license for setting up a coal based Fertilizer factory to manufacture Urea was obtained in November 1971. Planning and Development Division of FCI Ltd. (presently M/s PDIL, Sindri, India) supplied the detailed engineering for the plant. Commercial Production of Ammonia and Urea commenced on 01-11-1980. Department of Atomic Energy had also established a factory there to produce heavy water by taking synthesis mixture gas and return it after extraction.


Both Indian and foreign suppliers have supplied Technology for the different process plants and utilities:

Urea and Ammonia plants have been designed with a capacity to produce 4,95,000 MT and 2,97,000 MT per annum respectively. From the commencement of commercial production on 01.11.1980 till the year 1998-99, 17,61,228 MT of Urea and 12,50,056 MT of Ammonia have been produced.
