Agra Energy selects KP Engineering for new SAF facilities
These gas-to-liquids (GTL) units will produce sustainable aviation fuel or renewable diesel, produced entirely from effluent waste from dairy farms.
“We are honoured to be a trusted partner for another project that converts waste to value, and to be working alongside a revolutionary developer like Agra,” said William Preston, CEO of KPE.
“Their technology will fundamentally improve the operational sustainability of dairy farmers in America and abroad.”
Tony Long, CEO of Agra Energy, added: “Working with KP Engineering has been instrumental in our operational know-how, start up and commissioning.
“Now that the first unit is producing, we look forward to partnering with KPE to further optimise for the second, third and many units to come as we scale.
“This will offer benefits to farms and communities in building a better world.”
KPE’s scope of work consists of commissioning and start-up assistance on Agra’s first plant, incorporating lessons learned into the design for succeeding units, incorporating SAF production capability into that design, updating the total installed cost estimate and executing the full EPFCm on the second plant.
When completed and operational, the second plant will produce between 40 and 60 barrels per day of renewable fuel.
The second plant is scheduled to begin operations in the fourth quarter of 2024.
This award comes as a result of KPE’s successful relationship with Agra and its unique engineering, procurement and modular fabrication capabilities as part of the Shaw Group.
