Danish catalysis company Haldor Topsoe has launched a connected service for more reliability in hydrogen plants.

ClearViewTM Hydrogen 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 proactively alerts plant personnel of operational issues and continually suggests optimisation opportunities.

The insights are produced by applying Haldor Topsoe’s unique tools and experience to the validated operating data from the plant.

As part of the service, Topsoe engineers follow plant performance and proactively guide the customers’ plant engineers in optimising performance and quickly addressing operational issues.

“Reliable hydrogen production is a critical production parameter for refineries. So we are extremely pleased to offer our customers a service that puts our decades of experience at their fingertips every hour of every day,” said Michael Fjording, Director, Connected Services, Haldor Topsoe.

“ClearView applies Topsoe’s unique insights and allows our experts to work more closely with plant engineers to meet critical performance targets and reduce the risk of unplanned shutdowns.”

ClearView services are using Honeywell’s cloud-based software platform and tools.

“We are excited that the second ClearView solution has been launched to support refineries and chemical producers in getting a more reliable hydrogen supply,” said Christophe Romatier, Product Line Director, Honeywell Connected Performance Services.

“The ClearView service is a great addition to the Honeywell Connected Plant partner ecosystem and brings the deep domain expertise of Topsoe into a growing partner network.”

The first ClearView service was launched in March 2019, specifically developed to boost ammonia production. ClearView services for other segments in the chemical and refining industries will follow
