KBR awarded contract by Linggu Chemical for an ammonia synthesis unit in China

KBR, Inc. announced today that it has been awarded a contract by Linggu Chemical Co. Ltd (Linggu) for an ammonia plant in Yixing City, Jiangsu Province in China.

Under the terms of the contract, KBR will provide the technology licensing and basic engineering design (LBED) package for building a new 1,500 metric tons per day ammonia synthesis unit as a replacement for one of their existing units in Yixing, China. The plant will utilize KBR's proprietary ammonia synloop technology.

KBR's ammonia synloop provides a cost-effective ammonia synthesis solution with low energy consumption, and low CAPEX and OPEX for a reliable and efficient plant. This is the second grassroots ammonia synthesis unit for Linggu using KBR technology. KBR licensed the first synloop unit to Linggu in 2015.

"With KBR's advanced ammonia synthesis technology, we believe our plants will stand out in the coal-to-ammonia market in China," said Mr. Tan Fuyuan, Chairman of Linggu.

"We are honored to deliver this second ammonia unit to Linggu," said John Derbyshire, KBR President, Technology. "This project award showcases the superiority of KBR's Ammonia Synthesis Technology and its great fit for the market needs in China."

KBR is a leader in ammonia technology and has been involved in the licensing, design, engineering, and/or construction of more than 230 grass roots ammonia plants and over 100 revamp ammonia projects globally.
