LONDON (ICIS)--CDI Corporation has been awarded a $15m (€10.8m) engineering design services contract for the large-scale expansion of CF Industries' nitrogen fertilizer complexes in Louisiana and Iowa, the Philadelphia-based company announced late on Monday.

CF Industries is constructing new ammonia and urea/urea ammonium nitrate (UAN) plants at its Donaldsonville, Louisiana, complex and new ammonia and urea plants at its Port Neal, Iowa, complex.

The two new facilities will produce a combined 2.1m tonnes/year of ammonia and upgraded products ranging from 2.0m-2.7m tonnes/year of granular urea and up to 1.8m tonnes/year of UAN 32% solution, depending on choice of product mix.

At the Donaldsonville site, CDI is providing engineering services for a new river water clarifier and demineralised water system, ammonia storage tank and flare, UAN tank, regenerative thermal oxidiser, substation/motor control centre, interconnecting pipe racks, and all associated civil, piping, electrical and instrumentation, the firm said in a statement.

At the Port Neal site, CDI is providing engineering and procurement services for a water treating facility, two new ammonia storage tanks and all civil site development activities

"We are delighted to be working with CF Industries on this important project that spans two sites in two states," said Bill Wasilewski, executive vice president of CDI's Global Engineering and Technology Solutions business.

"Our experienced engineers already have completed the front end engineering design work for the Donaldsonville site and look forward to completing projects at both sites on time and on budget so that CF Industries can better serve its customers."
