Technip to design Mosaic Louisiana ammonia plant

01.03.2013  | 

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 tpd.

Mosaic on Thursday awarded Technip with 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 in Louisiana. 

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 tpd.

Mosaic is the world’s largest producer of finished phosphate products, with annual production capacity greater than the next two largest producers combined. The company’s plan is to backward integrate more fully into ammonia production by expanding its present capacity at Faustina.

The proposed design of the plant would feature Haldor Topsøe’ proprietary ammonia process technology that Technip has successfully engineered and constructed in projects for more than 40 years, according to the company. 

Technip will also perform the preliminary design work for the plant offsites, utilities, interconnections, and other supporting units for the facility.

Technip’s operating center in Houston will execute the FEED contract in collaboration with its engineering center in Rome, Italy. The development of the FEED and corresponding EPC proposal began in November 2012. Bboth 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 Topsøe," said David Dickson, Technip’s senior vice president for North America. 

"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 Topsøe/Technip as one of the recognized leaders in ammonia technology, as well as EPC services, in the US and around the world."

I have some 40-years working experience in fertilizer industry.
Especially in Ammonia plant, above all gasification section(production of hydrogen,co,co2,oxygen) coal-gasification -pertial oxidation of coal in presence of steam,nathatha/refinery gas partial oxidation in presence of steam/oxygen, nathatha-reformers,
De-Nora electroylsis for hydrogen/oxygen production.Especially all these units -worked during project/startup and production etc.
As process/product quality control- worked in the capacity of Production Manager/Chief Chemist always with wok force in range of 200-250.
