Amec Foster awarded US ammonia project contract

LONDON, UK: Amec Foster Wheeler said that it has been awarded a contract to provide project development support and design engineering for an integrated 80,000 tonne per year anhydrous ammonia production plant and electric power cogeneration facility, through a new agreement with Grannus LLC, a US-based clean technology and project development company.

Work has begun on the project and the plant is expected to be operational by Q42017.

The plant is situated in Kern County, California.

Operating with an environmentally-friendly profile, the medium-scale fertilizer plant is designed to be smaller and sited closer to the end user, and to require a smaller overall investment than today’s world-scale fertilizer plants.

Amec Foster Wheeler’s scope of work includes engineering design and definition work utilising key process technology and equipment suppliers, as well as execution planning activities for the facility.

“This award confirms our combined technical expertise in process engineering and integration, and our ability to work on this landmark project,” said Simon Naylor, group president, Americas, Amec.

“The anhydrous ammonia production plant developed by Grannus is an environmentally friendly way to make syngas-based chemical products as well as electricity, with near zero emissions,” said James Merritt Jr, chief development officer, Grannus.
