The company location

(Kima) factories and its residential city had established on a 1107 Acre in the south east of Aswan city with approximately four kilometer.

And the idea of establishing (Kima) in Aswan city came to exploit the electric power that came from the electric station of Aswan Dam year of 1956 for the possibility of exploiting the surplus part from the station power which produce 280 MW.

(Kima) consume approximately 200 : 220 MW and consume the bigger part of that in the electrolysis operations for the water where the raw materials are (the elective – the water – the air).

The fertilizer factory consists of the following sections:

1 Hydrogen production depatment : produce approximately 37000 m³ / h from

       the electrolysis of the water.

2 Nitrogen production depatment :  produce approximately 13000 m³ / h from

      the liquefaction of the water.

3 - Ammonia production depatment : produce approximately 400 ton / day from

     the mixture of Nitrogen and Hydrogen with proportion 1 : 3.

4 – Nitric acid production depatment :produce approximately 1422 ton 53 % /               day from burning half of the produced Ammonia with the air then melting it in the          water.

5 fertilizer and pure ammonium nitrate production depatment : producing             approximately 665 ton of fertilizer 33.50 % of Nitrogen and 300 ton of pure Nitric       Ammonium 34.80 % of Nitrogen lower and higher density daily.

6 bagging depatment : bagging the fertilizer and ammonium nitrate).

7 - general management of water utilities & boiler :  cooling the equipments with       water in a close cycle for rationalization of water consumption.

8 – electricity depatment.

9Sub-depatment : the central laboratories, stores, workshops, training, computer,       sensitive instrumentation workshops, fertilizer and ammonium naitrate stores, the       social services, clinic, Kom Ambo quarry and the river port.

The factories of the company extended with

kima colony consists of housing with different types – mosque – consumer cooperative association – clubs and swimming pool – wedding hall – bakery – primary school – junior high school – secondary school – kinder garden .
