Topsøe wins contract with PetroPeru

By Gerald Ondrey |

Haldor Topsøe (Lyngby, Denmark; www.topsoe.com) has signed a contract supplying technologies for three new plants with petroleum-oil refiner PetroPeru. The contract includes license and basic engineering of process design for the Talara refinery in Peru.  The Topsøe technologies are part of a modernization project of the Talara refinery located in northern Peru. The refinery will be upgraded to produce more environmentally friendly products with lower sulphur content. The plants are planned to be on-stream in 2015. Topsøe will supply license, engineering, catalyst and proprietary equipment for: a hydrogen plant of 30 million scf/d; an ultra low sulphur diesel hydrotreating plant for 41,000 bbl/d; and a WSA plant for reduction of sulphur emissions producing 460 ton/d of sulphuric acid.   The contract is expected to total about $40 million for Topsøe.
