Technip wins contract for hydrogen plant in Kansas

Technip, in consortium with its construction partner Performance Contractors Inc., has been awarded a contract by the National Cooperative Refinery Association (NCRA). This contract covers supply of Technip’s proprietary reforming technology, as well as EPCI 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 assistance.

“We are pleased to have been awarded this project, which is our third for NCRA at this site,” said Stan Knez, Technip’s Senior Vice President, Process Technology. “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.”
