Haldor Topsoe’s ClearView digital solution starts up at Fatima ammonia plant in Pakistan

By Mary Page Bailey |

Haldor Topsoe A/S (Lyngby, Denmark) announced that Pakistani fertilizer company Fatima has implemented Topsoe’s digital solution ClearView at their 1,650 metric tons per day ammonia facility in Rahim Yar Khan, Pakistan. 

“Digitalization is important in the strategic goals of both Topsoe and Fatima Group. It is a pleasure to collaborate with Topsoe, who is a great trusted partner, to jointly pursue our goals. Fatima remains committed to actively collaborate on the on-going development of the amazing tool and also other fields of common interests,” said Fawad A Mukhtar, CEO Fatima Group.

ClearView uses an online simulation of the actual performance of for instance an ammonia, hydrogen, or methanol plant to reveal performance variations that can be optimized. In many instances, plant performance deviates from what is immediately visible to the plant operator which can lead to unrecognized inefficiencies.

“We are very satisfied working together with Fatima on introducing this new connected service solution to improve performance. When we monitor the plants with ClearView, we achieve a new level of detailed insights that enable our customers to optimize productivity on different parameters. For now, our customers are within ammonia and our sulfur emissions solution, WSA. But since ClearView can be applied to all our technologies, our medium-term vision is to make digital performance optimization a part of all our technology offerings,” says Amy Hebert, Chief Commercial Officer at Topsoe.

ClearView is currently being installed at four ammonia plants and two wet gas sulfuric acid plants (WSA).
