MHI Compressor International to supply turbomachinery to Koch Fertilizer ammonia manufacturing facility

MHI Compressor International Corp. (MCO-I) will supply four compressors and two steam turbines during a revamp and expansion of Koch Fertilizer’s ammonia production facility in Fort Dodge, Iowa, US.

As a manufacturer and distributor of approximately 10 million tpy of fertilizer products, Koch Fertilizer recently announced a US$140 million revamp at its Fort Dodge facility to further improve reliability, environmental and safety performance. The investment will increase ammonia production capacity by 85 000 tpy.

In order to help meet these increased production goals, MCO-I will work in collaboration with Koch Fertilizer and its nominated EPC firm to supply turbomachinery including one SynGas compressor train and one process air compressor (PAC) train. Each train will be installed as ‘footprint replacements’ for the non-MCO-I SynGas and PAC trains onsite, to minimise impact to the existing facility’s infrastructure.
