KBR, Yokogawa collaborate for ammonia technology

HOUSTON, US: KBR and Yokogawa Electric Corporation announced the formation of a new alliance in which KBR will supply a fertilizer automation package as part of its ammonia process technology solutions to customers worldwide. This solution complements KBR’s industry leading ammonia portfolio of process licenses, basic engineering design package, proprietary equipment and catalyst supply.

The fertilizer automation package will couple KBR’s ammonia process technology expertise with Yokogawa’s know-how of process control systems to streamline the work process, develop standard configurations and simplify interfaces between various suppliers. Yokogawa will supply the CENTUM integrated production control system, the ProSafe-RS safety instrumented system and selected solution-based software.

It is expected that these solutions will improve plant reliability, reduce energy, increase capacity and improve operator effectiveness in fertilizer plants. Further consolidation of these functions will reduce life-cycle costs for plant control, automation and management systems. This alliance expands KBR’s solution footprint and provides measureable economic and process performance improvements to new and existing fertilizer plants across the globe.

“This alliance is consistent with KBR Technology’s growth strategy for our fertilizer business. We are very proud that Yokogawa has agreed to partner with KBR, and we look forward to pursuing opportunities to apply the fertilizer package both in our new and numerous existing facilities worldwide,” said John Derbyshire, President, Technology, KBR.
