KBR Inc. has announced that it has been awarded a nitric acid plant revamp contract by Haifa Chemicals Ltd for its plant in Mishor-Rotem, Israel.

Under the terms of the contract, Weatherly Inc. – a subsidiary of KBR – will be responsible for designing, supplying and commissioning a complete system for the selective catalytic reduction (SCR) of nitrogen oxides (NOx), with additional catalyst beds for N2O and NH3 slip abatement. The SCR system will be integrated into two existing nitric acid plants of 240 metric tpd and 147 metric tpd capacity that Haifa operates in Israel. Both plants were designed by KBR Weatherly and commissioned in 1987 and 1999, respectively.

John Derbyshire, KBR President, Technology, said: “We are proud of these two successful plants that were designed by KBR Weatherly and we look forward to modifying them to meet stricter environmental regulations.

“This revamp contract is a testimony to the trust placed by our clients in technologies from KBR Weatherly during the past six decades.”
