KBR wins license and design package for Bolivia fertilizer project
KBR (Houston; www.kbr.com) says it was awarded a contract by Samsung Engineering Co. to provide a technology license, basic engineering design package, and supply of proprietary equipment for a 1,200 metric tons per day ammonia fertilizer plant in Carrasco, Bolivia.
The fertilizer ammonia complex will be designed using KBR’s Purifier Technology. KBR will additionally supply proprietary operator training simulators and a steam dynamic simulation study to ensure a safe, fast, efficient startup of the ammonia plant and continued support to the operations. This project is part of the Bolivian government’s strategic initiatives for monetization of natural gas and demand for urea in the region, with production operations expected to begin in mid-2015.
