  • Use of unique Terrace WallTM reformer technology
  • Detail engineering and supply of material for a Primary Reformer Heater Package for ammonia plant

Amec Foster Wheeler announces today the award of a contract by The National Company for Fertilizers & Chemicals (AGROCHEM) to supply material and detailed engineering for a steam reformer heater for its fertiliser facility in Alexandria, Egypt.

The steam reformer heater, based on Amec Foster Wheeler's Terrace Wall design, will operate as the primary reformer in the 250 tpd ammonia production unit. This will allow AGROCHEM to have the complete production line within its facility without any external sourcing of ammonia, a key component in the production of fertiliser.

AGROCHEM is a new customer for Amec Foster Wheeler. The scope of work is scheduled for completion at the end of 2016.

Amec Foster Wheeler has a proven track record in the design and supply of fired heaters. Our proprietary Terrace WallTM fired heater technology is unique and proven globally and we look forward to applying it to this important facility for AGROCHEM.
