Russia: Plant Engineering Topsoe Technology Selected for Developing Mega Methanol Facility
The Nakhodka Mineral Fertiliser Plant has finalised Topsoe’s technology for building a 5,400 tonnes per day methanol plant in Russia. Work on the plant will be carried out by Haldor Topsoe and China Chengda Engineering.
Denmark – Topsoe will provide license, basic engineering, catalysts, and proprietary hardware for the methanol plant which will be based on Topsoe’s two-step reforming technology.
“We have chosen Topsoe for this very important project because they came to the table with proven and reliable technology, very competitive pricing and a long-standing presence in Russia. We look forward to realising Russia’s most modern and effective methanol plant together with Topsoe,” says Taras Ganaga, CEO Nakhodka Mineral Fertiliser Plant.
“We are pleased that Nakhodka Mineral Fertiliser Plant has selected Topsoe technology for their flagship project. This signals both confidence in our technology and our dedication to the Russian methanol industry. We look forward to deliver a world-scale methanol plant in partnership with China Chengda Engineering Co.,” says Amy Hebert, Deputy CEO of Haldor Topsoe.
The world-scale methanol plant will be located near the major Russian seaport Nakhodka in the Primorsky region with an intent to export its products to the Asia-Pacific Region.
