The location selected provides ease of access to transport. Its geography is located near a bay connected to the sea which means an easy access for vessels and ships since the raw materials coming from United States will be via a vessel. It will be essential also for the plant’s heating and cooling purposes because water can be drawn directly from and returned to the sea.
The topography of Lobo fits for the suitable location of the plant because it has proper load-bearing characteristics. And for the future changes, the operating requirements that influence the plant sizing is considered for the room expansion of the plant facilities.
The climate in the location provides favourable working conditions. The average monthly amount of precipitation has been recorded at around 188.9 mm throughout the month, it can be expected to see rain on 12 days of the
