India: Refinery Revamp Topsoe to Make Indian Refinery Ready for BS VI Specifications
Indian refinery company HPCL-Mittal Energy (HMEL) has chosen Topsoe’s diesel hydrotreater unit and hydrogen generation facilities to revamped their refinery in Bathinda, Punjab.
Lyngby/Denmark — According to Topsoe, the facility will meet the BS VI (equivalent to Euro VI) fuel specifications, when completed in the last quarter of 2019. The solution uses a new diesel hydrotreater unit supplemented by revamp of the existing hydrogen generation facility with two of the company’s proprietary heat exchange reformers (HTER). The manufacturer claims that this solution requires less investment than competing solutions along with shorter project implementation time, while providing optimal feed flexibility to meet processing objectives.
“HMEL has chosen this solution based on Topsoe’s insight into processes, hardware, and catalysts for ultra-low sulfur diesel. We are very satisfied to be able to deliver such a highly effective integrated solution in a very short time,” says Morten Schaldemose, Executive Vice President, Refinery Business Unit, Haldor Topsoe.
Engineers India Limited (EIL) is engaged to provide EPCM (Engineering, Procurement, Construction Management) services on the BS-VI Fuel Quality Project.
