KBR ammonia synthesis technology selected for India urea project

KBR has secured a contract for its ammonia synthesis technology from Wuhuan Engineering Co., Ltd. (WUHUAN), a Chinese EPC Contractor, for the Talcher fertilizer unit as part of a benchmark coal-to-urea project in India.

Under the terms of the contract, KBR will provide License and Basic Engineering Design (LBED), catalyst, and proprietary process equipment for the plant, based on KBR's ammonia synthesis technology.

The project is part of the Government of India’s efforts to increase domestic urea capacity for fertilizer production, reducing India’s reliance on imported urea and fertilizer. At present, there are no operational coal-to-urea plants in India.

Talcher Fertilizer Limited (TFL), a joint venture of Indian public sector companies formed to complete the project, awarded WUHUAN a lump sum turnkey (LSTK) contract to implement coal gasification and ammonia/urea packages earlier this year.

“We are proud to be part of this significant project in India,” said Doug Kelly, KBR President, Technology Solutions. “KBR’s ammonia synthesis process will deliver flexibility, reliability, and cost competitiveness to Talcher for years to come.”
