Topsoe will provide licence, basic engineering, catalysts and proprietary hardware for methanol production. In the first stage, Topsoe will provide basic engineering for the process unit, and MHI Engineering will develop the front-end engineering design (FEED) package for the site. At a later stage, the parties expect to sign an EPC contract. Construction is slated to begin in the second half of 2020.

The SynCOR reformer is used in large-scale methanol, ammonia and other processes.

All technology customers are looking for well-proven and advanced technologies, high performance and low environmental impacts, high energy efficiency, and low CAPEX. In most cases, customers face a difficult choice of how to reach a compromise between these interests. We have selected Topsoe as the Topsoe SynCOR Methanol process is the ultimate uncompromising choice. We have found everything we need,” says Osipov Alexander, technical director, GTM ONE.

“We are very pleased to offer a solution that not only helps our customers comply with environmental regulations, but also stands out as the most cost-effective in large-scale methanol production. We see increasing demand for this technology both in Russia and in other markets. We are also very content to continue our well-established cooperation with Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Engineering in Russia,” says Peter Vang Christensen, managing director of Haldor Topsoe's Moscow office.
