Topsoe has signed a contract supplying technologies for three new plants with oil refiner PetroPeru. The contract includes license and basic engineering of process design for the Talara refinery in Peru.

Modernising the refinery
The Topsoe technologies are part of a modernisation project of the Talara refinery located in northern Peru.

The refinery will be upgraded to produce more environmentally friendly products with lower sulphur content. The plants are planned to be on-stream in 2015.

Refining and environmental technologies
Topsoe will supply license, engineering, catalyst and proprietary equipment for

  • a hydrogen plant of 30 million standard cubic feet per day
  • an ultra low sulphur diesel hydrotreating plant for 41 thousand standard barrels per day
  • a WSA plant for reduction of sulphur emissions producing 460 tons sulphuric acid per day
  • The contract is expected to total about 40 million USD for Topsoe.

The president signed the contract
The contract was signed by the president of PetroPeru Luis Rebolledo and Sales Manager Torben Christensen at a ceremony at the PetroPeru headquarters in Lima, Peru.

“We look forward to collaborating with PetroPeru,” says Sales Manager Ernst Hansen. “We are very proud that we have been awarded the contracts, especially as they include three licensing contracts to the same supplier.”
