Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Compressor International Corp. (MCO-I) will supply two compressor trains for Gulf Coast Ammonia’s new ammonia production facility in Texas City, Texas, USA. The equipment includes a syngas compressor train and an ammonia refrigerant compressor train. Each train consists of two compressors and supporting auxiliary systems.
The compressors will be jointly built and tested by Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Compressor Corp. at its factory in Hiroshima, Japan, and at MCO-I’s Houston, Texas, facility. All trains are to be packaged in Houston.
When completed, the US$1billion plant will have a production capacity of approximately 1.3 million tons of ammonia per year and will purchase hydrogen and nitrogen gases as feedstock.
Air Products will build and operate the facility.
