Houston/USA – KBR has recently secured a contract for its ammonia synthesis technology from Wuhuan Engineering Co. (Wuhuan), a leading Chinese EPC Contractor, for the Talcher fertilizer unit as part of a benchmark coal-to-urea project in India.

Under the terms of the contract, KBR will provide License and Basic Engineering Design (LBED), catalyst, and proprietary process equipment for the plant, based on KBR's highly efficient ammonia synthesis technology.

The project is part of the Government of India's efforts to increase domestic urea capacity for fertiliser production, reducing India's reliance on imported urea and fertiliser. At present, there are no operational coal-to-urea plants in India.

Specialist Book „Heat Transfer Technique“The comprehensive standard work „Heat Transfer Technique“ offers not only a detailed and well-founded presentation of the basics of heat transfer technique, but also shows the latest state of the art and the latest regulations in the use of organic fluids. Thematically, the book is rounded off with an overview of property data of organic heat transfer fluids as well as many use cases from practical experience.

Talcher Fertilizer (TFL), a joint venture of Indian public sector companies formed to complete the project, awarded Wuhuan a lump sum turnkey (LSTK) contract to implement coal gasification and ammonia/urea packages earlier this year.

KBR's innovative synthesis technology is valued for its low energy usage, flexibility and lower capital costs.

"We are proud to be part of this significant project in India," said Doug Kelly, KBR President, Technology Solutions. "KBR's ammonia synthesis process will deliver flexibility, reliability, and cost competitiveness to Talcher for years to come."

Since the 1960s, KBR has licensed, engineered or constructed more than 237 ammonia plants worldwide.
