Nakhodka Mineral Fertilizer Plant has chosen Haldor Topsoe A/S (Lyngby, Denmark; www.topsoe.com) technology for a 5,400 tons-per-day methanol plant near Vladivostok in the Eastern part of Russia. China Chengda Engineering Co., LTD, has been chosen for engineering, procurement and construction (EPC).

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 realizing Russia’s most modern and effective methanol plant together with Topsoe,” says Taras Ganaga, CEO Nakhodka Mineral Fertilizer Plant.

“We are pleased that Nakhodka Mineral Fertilizer 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.
