US-based global technology firm KBR has announced that it has been selected by India’s ACME Group to provide its breakthrough technology for a green ammonia project to be built in Oman at an estimated cost or $3.5 billion, Oman Observer states.
Under the terms of the contract, Houston-based KBR will provide technology license, engineering, proprietary equipment, catalyst, and commissioning services for a plant to produce 300 metric tons per day of ammonia. The plant, planned in the Special Economic Zone at Duqm, will be an integrated facility using solar and wind energy to produce green ammonia.
“We are honoured to be selected by ACME Group for this ambitious project,” said Doug Kelly, KBR President, Technology. “Energy transition driven by green ammonia is a reality and KBR will play a pivotal role in helping innovative companies like ACME establish early-mover advantages through our industry leading technology.”
“This facility, aimed towards exporting green ammonia to Europe and Asia, will be the first project of this scale,” said Manoj K Upadhyay, Founder & Chairman, ACME Group. “We selected KBR technology because of its high yields and lowest energy consumption and look forward to a successful project implementation.”
