Haldor Topsøe has won the contract for a diesel hydrotreating unit for the Russian Syzran Refinery owned by Rosneft, the largest Russian oil company.
The Rosneft Syzran refinery is one of Rosnefts seven refineries.
The new diesel hydrotreater is part of Rosnefts modernization program, aiming at producing clean fuels in accordance with the Euro V specifications, which will be introduced in Russia by 2015.
The contract is a continuation of Topsøes and Rosnefts collaboration, the companies said.
With this project we further strengthen our relationship with Rosneft, and we look forward to initiating the project, says Jens Ole Madsen, general manager for refining technologies.
Rosneft has installed a Topsøe HTCR unit for hydrogen production at the Kuibyshev Refinery and several hydrotreating catalyst charges at refineries in Kuibyshev, Novokuibyshev and Syzran.
The new diesel hydrotreater will process 2.5 million tpy feed into ultra-low sulfur diesel with less than 10 wppm sulfur.
The contract includes the basic engineering design package, reactor design, TK catalysts and reactor internals.
