KBR completes Dyno Nobel’s ammonia plant in US

HOUSTON, US: KBR Inc completes the performance tests and official delivery of Dyno Nobel Louisiana Ammonia LLC’s ammonia plant in Waggaman, Louisiana (US).

This is the first project to use an integrated KBR solution of KBR's Purifier ammonia technology along with KBR's engineering, construction and procurement (EPC) services. It is one of the first onshore ammonia plants built in the US in the past 20 years, and the first new grassroots ammonia plant in Louisiana in over 30 years.

The facility met and exceeded all performance parameters for throughput, efficiency and environmental performance, handover of operations and management to Dyno Nobel, a subsidiary of Incitec Pivot Limited (IPL).

The time from contract award to handover was 42 months, which is the quickest overall schedule of a major, grassroots ammonia project undertaken in the US in the last 5 years. Demonstrating KBR's commitment to Zero Harm, the project reached this milestone with no lost time incident, while executing more than five million man hours.

"We are proud of this ground-breaking project which showcases KBR's best-in-industry ammonia plant technology and EPC services. The completion of this project demonstrates KBR's world-class project execution and customer service capabilities," said David Zelinski, president of onshore, engineering & construction Americas, KBR.
