Gaz Sintez has nominated Haldor Topsoe as the licensor of its methanol plant in the Leningrad region, Russia. The plant will produce 1.6 million tpy of AA grade methanol based on Topsoe’s SynCOR MethanolTM technology.
Gaz Sintez is developing the methanol plant project at the port of Vysotsk in the Leningrad region of Russia. As announced previously, Hyundai Engineering has started the development of the FEED-package, and NIIK has been awarded the Russian general designer contract. The plant is expected to be completed in 2023.
SynCOR Methanol features single-stage oxygen reforming, a methanol synthesis loop, and rectification. It is the most cost-efficient large-scale methanol technology in industrial operation today. Capacities can be up to 10 000 tpd of methanol. It also offers considerable environmental advantages, leaving a smaller CO2 footprint and lower water consumption compared to traditional licensed technologies.
