KBR will provide technology licensing and basic engineering design (LBED) as well as proprietary equipment for Kemerovo Azot's plant in Russia.

This is a 500 tpd nitric acid plant and is targeted to be in operation by 2021. Nitric acid will be used for the production of ammonium nitrate, one of the major nitrogen fertilizers.

"This will be the first project in Russia to be built using technology from KBR Weatherly, which has more than six decades of global experience with this technology," said John Derbyshire, KBR President of Technology. "We are extremely proud to be part of this Kemerovo Azot project."

Weatherly Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of KBR, has a distinguished history of serving the fertilizer industry with over 250 installations worldwide including over 75 nitric acid plants. Technologies from Weatherly Inc. are proven, modern, cost-effective, and energy efficient.
