Koch Nitrogen adding control center at Fort Dodge plant
Koch Nitrogen Company LLC has begun construction on a $10 million state-of-the-art control center building at its fertilizer plant located near Fort Dodge, Iowa. The project is an upgrade to the current facility and consolidates control center functions, operations and maintenance for the site.
“This new facility will allow us to improve and enhance our current operations with consolidated control activities and an updated office infrastructure,” said Steve Packebush, president of Koch Nitrogen. “Most importantly, it will help us improve our level of responsiveness to our customers in this growing market.”
In addition to housing the plant’s control center, administrative and operations offices, the new facility will also feature a multilevel maintenance shop. The building is expected to be fully operational in early 2014 and will replace the current structure, which will be razed.
Koch Nitrogen is located approximately five miles east of Fort Dodge and manufactures anhydrous ammonia and UAN fertilizers.
