Danish catalysis firm Haldor Topsoe has reportedly inaugurated a new office in Jakarta, Indonesia, to provide highly specialized services and technological solutions and strengthen its presence in the nation. As per trusted sources, the demand for DME grassroots plants, methanol, and ammonia is anticipated to grow significantly in the future.
Reportedly, customers in the petrochemical sector have been benefiting from the catalysts and specialized solutions from Topsoe since many years. The new office would support Indonesian refining customers with state-of-the-art catalysts and technology to meet the latest fuel specifications. Moreover, the fertilizer sector would benefit from Topsoe solutions which optimize energy consumption.
Managing Director of Topsoe’s office in Malaysia, Jack H. Carstensen was reportedly quoted stating that the company has been assisting customers in Indonesia for over four decades and now would be able to provide faster services customized to specific needs of clients.
Sources familiar with the matter claim that Indonesia is a significant and fast-growing market with numerous opportunities. The new office would help to fulfil different requirements of Indonesian customers.
While speaking at the inauguration of the office, the Executive Vice President of Refinery Business Unit at Haldor Topsoe, Morten Schaldemose reportedly commented that the new office is a decisive milestone in the company’s strategy to further expand in the region and a natural step with respect to the favorable development of the Indonesian economy.
It is being said that there is an expected growth in the demand for ammonia in DME as an alternative to LPG for household usage, in methanol manufacturing as feedstock for the downstream petrochemical business, and in the fertilizer industry.
Reportedly, Indonesia is set to transition its fuel legislation into Euro V in the upcoming days. This would lead to Topsoe technology and catalysts being used by refining customers in both new and existing refineries to meet the current and future fuel specifications with an ideal cost-benefit ratio.
