Russia: Engineering Contract KBR Awarded Two Ammonia Plant Revamp Contracts
Engineering company KBR has been awarded contracts for revamping two ammonia plants by PJSC Acron Group, Novgorod, Russia.
Houston/USA — In order to increase production capacity of PJSC Acron's ammonia plants in Novgorod, Russia, by over 30 % to 2300 MTPD each, KBR will supply the process technology license, basic engineering design package, and proprietary equipment for the ammonia plants to increase production capacity. The original plants were commissioned in the 1970s.
The key revamp measures will include the company's Kres technology, their Horizontal Ammonia Convertor, and other advanced features that increase output and overall energy efficiency as well as reduce greenhouse gas emissions per ton of ammonia. The completion of the first revamp project including commissioning and start-up is expected in 2023.
