Baltic Gas Chemical Co., Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Engineering and Haldor Topsoe have signed a tripartite license agreement for a methanol plant project in Ust-Luga, Russia. The planned capacity of 1.7 million tpy is among the largest single-train methanol capacities in operation.

Under the contract, Topsoe will deliver SynCOR MethanolTM license, basic engineering, proprietary technology, and catalysts.

“We have chosen Haldor Topsoe’s SynCOR Methanol process technologies due to its superiority in efficiency, costs, as well as conformity with the highest environmental and safety standards. We are planning that Mitsubishi Heavy Industries will be responsible for front end engineering design and engineering, procurement and construction for our project, while Haldor Topsoe will support MHI with process basic engineering, catalysts, and proprietary equipment deliveries. Both MHI and Topsoe have successful references of work under Russian chemical projects, and they have a long cooperation history globally. We think that signing of such tripartite agreement is an important milestone in the project development,” emphasized Grigory Omelchenko, General Director, BGCC.
