Plants: Port of Tampa Ammonia Terminal
2520 Guy Verger Boulevard
Tampa, Florida 33605-6800
CF Industries’ ammonia terminal at the Port of Tampa provides the company access to world markets for anhydrous ammonia, a raw material used in the manufacture of ammoniated phosphate fertilizers. Using imported ammonia to produce phosphate fertilizer in Florida allows the company to market ammonia produced at its two nitrogen complex in higher-margin Corn Belt regions. The terminal has a 38,000-ton ammonia storage tank and a deep water dock. The terminal is the only one in Tampa capable of unloading the largest fully-loaded ammonia vessels.
The terminal, operated in conjunction with the company’s phosphate fertilizer storage and shipping operation at the Port of Tampa, ships ammonia to CF Industries’ Plant City fertilizer complex via rail. It also has truck loading capabilities and has access to the local ammonia pipeline.
Each year, the Port of Tampa ammonia terminal handles more than 450,000 tons of ammonia to support CF Industries’ phosphate fertilizer manufacturing operations.
