KBR to provide Purifier technology for first world-scale ammonia plant in U.S. in nearly 25 years  

By Gerald Ondrey |

KBR (Houston; www.kbr.com) has been awarded a contract by Iowa Fertilizer Co., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Orascom Construction Industries (OCI), to provide licensing, engineering services and proprietary equipment for its grassroots fertilizer plant in Southeastern Iowa. The plant will be the first world-scale ammonia plant built in the U.S. in nearly 25 years. The plant will be designed using KBR’s Purifier technology, which has demonstrated higher reliability than conventional designs and offers the lowest proven energy consumption in the industry. The 2,200 MTPD ammonia plant is part of the fertilizer complex and is based upon an existing design operating in Burrup, Australia since 2006. “This award represents a milestone in the North American fertilizer business and illustrates the opportunity for low natural gas prices to have a significant impact in this industry over the next five to ten years,” says John Derbyshire, president, KBR Technology. “Our low energy, low capital cost, and high reliability ammonia processes provide our clients with the flexibility and workhorse performance they will need in order to operate in North America and at the same time achieve and maintain a globally competitive advantage.”
