thyssenkrupp has entered into an engineering and supply contract with CF Industries to deliver a green hydrogen plant for the production of green ammonia at the Donaldsonville manufacturing complex in Louisiana. Under this contract thyssenkrupp will engineer and deliver a 20 MW hydrogen production unit based on their alkaline water electrolysis as well as all necessary utilities. The plant will utilize renewable energy from the grid to produce green hydrogen which then will be converted to 20,000 tonnes per year of green ammonia in CF Industries existing ammonia plants at the Donaldsonville, LA site. Green ammonia can be used as a highly efficient storage and transport medium for renewable energy and also directly as a clean fuel, eg in maritime transportation. Engineering and procurement activities have been initiated; the start of production is scheduled for 2023.
With six ammonia plants and several fertilizer plants, the CF Industries’ site in Donaldsonville is the largest ammonia manufacturing complex worldwide. The largest ammonia plant at this site has also been delivered by thyssenkrupp and is based on the proven uhde ammonia process.
