Technip awarded contract by NCRA for a H2 plant in Kansas
Technip (Paris, France; www.technip.com), in consortium with its construction partner Performance Contractors Inc., was awarded a contract by the National Cooperative Refinery Assn. (NCRA). This contract covers supply of Technip’s proprietary reforming technology, as well as engineering, procurement, installation and installation (EPCI) of the No. 2 hydrogen plant equipment at NCRA’s refinery in McPherson, Kansas. The 40 million standard cubic feet per day (45,000 Nm3/h) plant is part of an expansion project which will allow NCRA to upgrade this refinery.
The project will utilize Technip's high efficiency top-fired steam reformer to produce high purity hydrogen and export steam and the latest nitrogen oxide reduction technology to ensure minimum emissions. The contract covers engineering, fabrication, supply, installation, pre-commissioning and start-up assistance.
Technip’s operating center in Claremont, California, will execute the project, which is scheduled for completion by the first semester of 2015.
