CALORIC wins project in Turkmenistan

CALORIC succeeded in a new tender for the delivery of its first methanol cracking plant supplied to Turkmenistan. Considering the on-site situation especially in remote areas, methanol represents in many cases the more competitive alternative to natural gas. Therefore CALORIC’s highly efficient and robustly designed methanol cracker suits perfectly the on-site demand of hydrogen for downstream processing.

The plant will be installed at remote location in Turkmenistan and will be able to produce 2500 Nm3/h H2 in the syngas. The plant will only be used few times during the year for the start-up of a gas to gasoline unit. Therefore the focus of this plant is not on operating the plant continuously but to start-up the unit very shortly at all times during the year. For this scenario hot oil has been chosen for heating the methanol cracking process.

CALORIC’s flexibly operating project team has been able to win this project by designing the plant in close cooperation with the customer. With the experience of 100 installed hydrogen generation plants and continuous investment in research and development CALORIC is in the position to provide state of the art technology for the customer’s actual needs.
