Technip bags Mosaic’s ammonia plant contract in Louisiana, US

PARIS, FRANCE: Technip was awarded by The Mosaic Company the front-end engineering and design (FEED) contract, as well as preparation of the corresponding engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) proposal, for a new ammonia plant under consideration by the global crop nutrient company. Mosaic’s preference is to locate the proposed plant adjacent to the company’s existing Faustina fertilizer manufacturing operations in St James Parish, Louisiana. It would have a capacity of 2,200 metric tonne per day.

The proposed design of the plant would feature Haldor Topsoe’ proprietary ammonia process technology that Technip has successfully engineered and constructed in projects for more than 40 years. Technip will also perform the preliminary design work for the plant offsites, utilities, interconnections, and other supporting units for the facility.

Technip’s operating centre in Houston, Texas will execute the FEED contract in collaboration with its engineering centre in Rome, Italy. The development of the FEED and corresponding EPC proposal began in November 2012; both are targeted for completion by mid-2013.

“Technip is delighted to have been awarded this contract together with our long-term, tier-one partner Haldor Topsoe. The proposed Mosaic ammonia facility would be one of the most modern and efficient in operation in the Americas. This award confirms once again the position of the team Haldor Topsoe/Technip as one of the recognized leaders in Ammonia Technology, as well as EPC services, in the US and around the world,” said David Dickson, Senior Vice President, North America Region, Technip.
