Matrix Service Co.'s subsidiary, Matrix Service Inc., has been awarded the engineering, procurement, fabrication and construction of a 20 000 short t ammonia tank for Fortigen Geneva LLC's new anhydrous ammonia fertilizer manufacturing plant in Geneva, Nebraska.
The plant is Fortigen’s first fertilizer manufacturing facility and will produce 100 short tpd of anhydrous ammonia.
This facility will take advantage of the low cost of natural gas and reduced transportation costs to serve some of the most productive crop land in the world.
"As we continue to execute our own growth strategy across the gas value chain, we are extremely proud to have been selected by Fortigen to provide this critical work at its new facility,” said Matrix Service Company President and CEO, John Hewitt. “As a leader in the design, construction, maintenance and repair of aboveground, cryogenic and other storage tanks and pressure vessels, we look forward to delivering this project safety, on time and on budget.”
Joshua Westling, Vice President of Omaha-based Tetrad Corp, which owns Fortigen, added: “We are very proud of our role in bringing fertilizer production back to the US and, specifically, to America’s heartland. We were methodical in the selection of our partners and are confident in Matrix Service’s ability to meet our expectations.”
The project team has initiated civil work at the job site with construction of the tank scheduled for completion during 3Q17.
