Haldor Topsoe and BASF collaborate to enhance ammonia plant operations
Published by Jessica Casey,
Haldor Topsoe and BASF have announced that they entered into an agreement to offer ammonia producers new optimisation possibilities.
With Topsoe’s connected service, ClearViewTM Ammonia, and BASF’s simulation tool, OASE® connect, combined, customers will now be able to get a better and more precise simulation of their ammonia plant operations and in turn optimise their production.
“ClearView is the market-leading connected service for ammonia production, and we’re excited to enter into this agreement. OASE products have been instrumental in the design of CO2 removal units for ammonia plants for decades, and the wealth of experience and insights embedded into OASE connect can now help ammonia plants optimise their production in near real time through the ClearView solution,” said Glenn Langguth, Head of Global Commercial Management, OASE - Gas Treatment Excellence, BASF.
“This agreement is a great step forward for ClearView, enabling us to offer a complete connected services solution that adds even more value for ammonia producers. BASF has been our preferred supplier for CO2 removal technology in our numerous ammonia projects over the years, and we have great trust in their expertise,” added Michael Fjording, Connected Services Director, Haldor Topsoe.
ClearView, which was launched in 2019, is a complete connected plant service that leverages the power of continuous upload of data to offer plant owners improved asset utilisation, energy savings and less unplanned downtime. Based on a stream of comprehensive data from the plant, modelling and analytical software continually suggests optimisation opportunities and proactively alerts plant personnel of operational issues.
OASE white is a proven amine-based gas treatment technology for treatment of gases containing hydrogen and/or carbon monoxide. OASE white's broad application scope, the continuous optimisation based on hundreds of references including BASF's own facilities, and the flexible operability of this process makes it the leading choice for applications such as ammonia, iron-ore and many more.
