Amec Foster Wheeler in integrated cogen plant contract win

Amec Foster Wheeler has won a contract for project development support and design engineering for an integrated cogeneration plant and ammonia production facility in California.

The facility, under development by US-based cleantech firm Grannus, will process 80,000 tonnes per year of anhydrous ammonia, which is used as a fertiliser.

Work has already begun on the project, which is expected to be operational by the end of 2017.

Grannus says its Eureaka Process plant design (pictured), which captures steam for use in the fertiliser production process, results in a zero-emissions combined fertiliser and thermal power plant. According to the company’s website, the plant is based on a combined-cycle gas turbine.

Amec Foster Wheeler Americas group president Simon Naylor said: ‘This award confirms our combined technical expertise in process engineering and integration’.
