Russia – Gaz Sintez has nominated Haldor Topsoe as licensor of its methanol plant in the Leningrad Region, Russia. The plant will produce 1.6 million tonnes per year of АА grade methanol based on Topsoe’s Syncor Methanol technology.

Gaz Sintez is developing the methanol plant project at the port of Vysotsk in the Leningrad Region of Russia. As announced earlier, Hyundai Engineering has started the development of the Feed-package, and Niik has been awarded the Russian general designer contract. The plant is expected to be completed in 2023.

Syncor Methanol features single-stage oxygen reforming, a methanol synthesis loop and rectification. It is the most cost-efficient large-scale methanol technology in industrial operation today. Capacities can be up to 10,000 tonnes per day of methanol.

Specialist Book „Heat Transfer Technique“The comprehensive standard work „Heat Transfer Technique“ offers not only a detailed and well-founded presentation of the basics of heat transfer technique, but also shows the latest state of the art and the latest regulations in the use of organic fluids. Thematically, the book is rounded off with an overview of property data of organic heat transfer fluids as well as many use cases from practical experience.

It also offers considerable environmental advantages, leaving a smaller CO2 footprint, and lower water consumption compared to traditional licensed technologies, states Haldor Topsoe.

Based on 70 years of experience within synthesis gas, all Syncor solutions offer more than 99 % availability and unsurpassed economy of scale. These solutions are suitable for large-scale grassroots ammonia, methanol, hydrogen, CO, Tigas, and gas-to-liquid (GTL) plants, as well as syngas hubs producing multiple products, adds the firm.
