HOUSTON (ICIS)--KBR has been awarded the contract to provide a license and basic engineering design package for Nitrogenmuvek’s ammonia plant in Petfurdo, Hungary, the US-based engineering firm said on Tuesday.
The work is part of a planned ammonia plant revamp that intends to increase capacity while reducing energy consumption at the plant, which is described as a 1970s vintage-designed facility. KBR expects to increase ammonia output from 1,000 tonnes/day to approximately 1,650 tonnes/day.
Founded in 1931, Nitrogenmuvek makes and sells solid and liquid fertilizers, with its primary export markets being Romania, Slovakia, Serbia, Italy and Germany. For their part, KBR officials describe the upcoming project work as a further opportunity to grow their revamp operations.
“Our goal in this revamp project is to enable Nitrogenmuvek to extract the maximum possible performance from their KBR designed ammonia plants,” said John Derbyshire, KBR technology president. “This contract represents an opportunity for KBR to further expand its footprint in the rapidly increasing ammonia revamp business.”
