German conglomerate 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.

As per the deal, thyssenkrupp will engineer and deliver a 20 MW hydrogen production unit based on their alkaline water electrolysis as well as all necessary utilities.

Further, the plant will utilize renewable energy from the grid to produce green hydrogen which then will be converted to 20,000 tons 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, e.g. in maritime transportation.

The company said that engineering and procurement activities have been initiated; and the production is expected to start from 2023.

With 6 ammonia plants and several fertilizer plants, the CF Industries’ site in Donaldsonville has been 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.

Commenting on the project win, Dennis Lippmann, President Chemical & Process Technologies, thyssenkrupp Industrial Solutions USA, said “Following the recent delivery of two world-scale ammonia and fertilizer plants to CF Industries we are honored to have now been selected by our long-term customer to contribute to the decarbonization of their operations and to support them in their mission to provide clean energy to feed and fuel the world sustainably.”
