KBR to design new Indonesia ammonia, urea plant

KBR was selected Friday by PT Pupuk Sriwidjaja Palembang to provide licensing, engineering services and proprietary equipment for a new 2,000 tpd ammonia and 2,750 tpd urea plant located in Palembang, South Sumatra, Indonesia.

The plant will be designed using KBR’s Purifier technology, which the company says has demonstrated higher reliability than conventional designs and offers the lowest proven energy consumption in the industry.

Construction of the grassroots facility is part of a consortium between Rekayasa and Toyo Engineering. Rekayasa will be responsible for the ammonia and Toyo for the urea.

“We are proud to provide our technology to help PT Pupuk Sriwidjaja Palembang meet the rising need of ammonia and urea production,” said John Derbyshire, president of KBR Technology.

“KBR’s Purifier technology yields an extremely reliable, robust, low-energy plant, which will enable our customer to operate more efficiently.”
