Terminal of Liquid Fertilizers – Fray Bentos



The first and unique independent liquid terminal in Uruguay, it starts operations in 2008 in Fray Bentos and in 2013 it opens new facilities in Nueva Palmira.

It provides integral reception, storage and delivery services of liquid fertilizers to Petrobras.

Currently, it receives by land in Fray Bentos and by sea in Nueva Palmira and dispatches by land. Our staff is continuously trained and focused on the safety of people and the environment.

It has 5 tanks with a storage capacity of 11,000 m3, pump battery, surveillance cameras with remote access, continuous level measurement with radar sensors, truck scale and loading island with capacity for blending different fertilizer formulations.

Nodus operates in Nueva Palmira the Liquid Terminal of Uruguay (TLU),

the Liquid Terminal of Uruguay (TLU),

The first plant in the country capable of providing services to third parties, with a stainless steel 8” diameter pipeline connection to a port. The new infrastructure enables the possibility of lowering the costs of liquid maritime transportation and also guarantees that the liquids are discharged in compliance with strict environmental protection measures, acknowledged and approved by the National Environmental Office (Dirección Nacional de Medio Ambiente – Dinama).

The terminal

Located 550 meters from Nueva Palmira’s public pier, is capable of discharging liquids directly from vessels in volumes of up to 500 m3/h, up to five tanks with a total capacity of 11,000 m³, and to dispatch trucks at a state-of-the-art blending station that manages varied compositions of mixtures of fertilizers.

More than 40,000 tons of UAN (Urea Ammonium Nitrate) are handled with the new infrastructure, representing 60% of the total volume of fertilizers used in Uruguay.


Is a dynamic project to the extent that Nodus has submitted to the National Environmental Office a proposal for the expansion of the terminal and subsequent creation of new business opportunities. In this sense, the building of new pipeline connections and tanks for the storage of other liquids such as vegetable oil and fuels is foreseen. This shall constitute an important contribution to the logistics infrastructure that regional producers require.
