HPCL-Mittal Energy Ltd (HMEL), an Indian refinery company, has selected Topsoe’s diesel hydrotreater unit and hydrogen generation facilities to meet its upgrading requirements.
When completed in 4Q19, the revamped refinery in Bathinda, Punjab will meet the BS VI (equivalent to Euro VI) fuel specifications.
Topsoe’s bundled technology solution and the fast project implementation will make it possible for HMEL to meet the BS VI fuel specification deadline.
Topsoe notes that the solution uses a new diesel hydrotreater unit supplemented by revamp of the existing hydrogen generation facility with two of Topsoe’s proprietary heat exchange reformers (HTER).
The diesel hydrotreater unit will be optimised to take advantage of Topsoe’s HyBRIMTM TK-611 ultra-low sulfur diesel catalyst that deliver 25% improved activity for both nitrogen and sulfur removal and longer cycle lengths while processing complex feeds.
Morten Schaldemose, Executive Vice President, Refinery Business Unit, Haldor Topsoe, said: “HMEL has chosen this solution based on Topsoe’s insight into processes, hardware, and catalysts for ultra-low sulfur diesel. We are very satisfied to be able to deliver such a highly effective integrated solution in a very short time.”
Engineers India Ltd (EIL) is engaged to provide EPCM (Engineering, Procurement, Construction Management) services on the BS-VI Fuel Quality Project.
