Technip Awarded Contract by NCRA for a Hydrogen Plant in Kansas (USA)
PARIS -- August 14, 2013
Technip (Paris:TEC) (ISIN:FR0000131708) (ADR:TKPPY), in consortium with its
construction partner Performance Contractors Inc., was awarded a contract by
the National Cooperative Refinery Association (NCRA^(1)). This contract covers
supply of Technip’s proprietary reforming technology, as well as EPCI^(2) of
the No. 2 hydrogen plant equipment at NCRA’s refinery in McPherson, Kansas.
The 40 million standard cubic feet per day (45 thousand normal cubic meters
per hour) plant is part of an expansion project which will allow NCRA to
upgrade this refinery.
The project will utilize Technip's high efficiency top-fired steam reformer to
produce high purity hydrogen and export steam and the latest nitrogen oxide
reduction technology to ensure minimum emissions. The contract covers
engineering, fabrication, supply, installation, pre-commissioning and start-up
Technip’s operating center in Claremont, California, will execute the project,
which is scheduled for completion by the first semester of 2015.
Stan Knez, Technip’s Senior Vice President, Process Technology, commented: "We
are pleased to have been awarded this project, which is our third for NCRA at
this site. Previously, we provided a 34 million standard cubic foot per day
hydrogen plant and subsequently, executed an expansion project on the same
plant. This experience has given us a strong foundation upon which we will
provide our technology and services for this important upgrade project.”
