Texas/USA – KBR has recently announced that it has been awarded a contract by Linggu Chemical Co. (Linggu) for an ammonia plant in Yixing City, Jiangsu Province in China. Under the terms of the contract, KBR will provide the technology licensing and basic engineering design (LBED) package for building a new 1,500 metric tonnes per day ammonia synthesis unit as a replacement for one of their existing units in Yixing, China. The plant will utilise KBR's proprietary ammonia synloop technology.
KBR’s ammonia synloop provides a cost-effective ammonia synthesis solution with low energy consumption, and low Capex and Opex for a reliable and efficient plant. This is the second grassroots ammonia synthesis unit for Linggu using KBR technology. KBR licensed the first synloop unit to Linggu in 2015.
