KBR was the technology licensor and provided basic engineering design for the US$1 billion project.
“We are proud to have taken part in this ambitious project,” said John Derbyshire, KBR President, Technology Solutions. “Even at this large scale, the KBR Purifier ammonia process is flexible, reliable, and will provide tremendous cost benefits for many years to come.”
“Today, you have to be a leader – both in terms of technology and product slate – to win in the marketplace,” said Alexander Tugolukov, head of EuroChem’s fertilizer division. “We recognise this, and are continuously striving to achieve new qualitative levels based on the best world-class technologies. For this project, we have applied the best technology by KBR to produce 1 million tons of ammonia per year, with 15% better energy performance, as compared to the existing production facilities.”
KBR also provided various digital solutions, including remote operations monitoring and Ammonia InSite®, a virtual 3D graphics-embedded Operator Training Simulator including e-learning system as well as a Reliability Based Maintenance system.
