HOUSTON, US: KBR Inc (KBR) has entered into an agreement to provide its proprietary technology ammonia InSite technology to PT Panca Amara Utama (PAU) for the Sulawesi, Indonesia ammonia plant complex.

Ammonia InSite technology is a KBR integrated solution specifically designed to assist in maximizing the operational performance and profitability of ammonia plants through five modules specialized in management of production, energy efficiency, maintenance, reliability, and environmental compliance. The solution includes performance diagnostics and analytics, benchmarking, the predictability of outcomes, and prevention of unplanned downtime, along with support from KBR experts.

Under the terms of the agreement, ammonia InSite will initially be used to support the successful start-up and commissioning of PAU's new ammonia plant complex, and will then support sustained plant operations to maximize asset utilization and profitability.

This award represents the addition of another innovative KBR technology at the 2000 MTPD ammonia plant which is using our reforming exchanger system and purifier technology. The plant is the first Greenfield Purifier + KRES Technology plant to be commissioned. KBR's propriety technology and equipment has demonstrated higher reliability and efficiency than conventional designs and offers the lowest proven energy consumption in the industry.

"We are delighted to have KBR with us not only as a technology licensor but also as a guide and trusted advisor in maximizing the potential of the new technology in its first implementation in the world," said Vinod Laroya, vice president director & CEO, Panca Amara Utama (PAU).

"KBR is pleased to have the opportunity to provide the ammonia InSite technology to PAU. Ammonia InSite provides a cost-effective collaborative service between PAU and KBR to ensure safe, reliable top-tier plant operations, " said John Derbyshire, president, KBR Technology and Consulting.
