Haldor Topsoe launches breakthrough connected service for optimal plant performance
Haldor Topsoe, a world leader in high-performance catalysts and proprietary technologies, and the connected plant leader Honeywell announced a technology alliance to expand the benefits of connected services to a broader range of the chemical and refining industries. As a product of this alliance, Topsoe has launched ClearView - a breakthrough service to maximize plant output, save energy, and improve reliability. Using Honeywell’s cloud -based software platform, the ClearView service gathers operating data from the plant, cleanses the data, applies Haldor Topsoe's tools and experience, and delivers performance-enhancing insights straight to the plant's process engineers and managers.

"As a global market leader in catalysts and technology, we are thrilled to offer our customers a service that puts our decades of experience at their fingertips every hour of every day. Using Honeywell's proven software platform and tools, 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," says Bjerne S. Clausen, CEO, Haldor Topsoe. Company's proprietary modelling and simulation tools have been constantly updated and refined to design increasingly energy-efficient and reliable plants and help customers optimize existing production and catalyst utilization. Now, the ClearView service gives Topsoe customers continuous access to these tools to increase the profitability of their plants. As part of the service, Topsoe engineers follow plant performance and proactively guide the customers' plant engineers in optimizing performance and quickly addressing operational issues based on output from the new service. The first service has been developed specifically to boost ammonia production, services for other segments in the chemical and refining industries will follow. For Honeywell, the ClearView Service is a great addition to the Honeywell Connected Plan partner ecosystem, as it meets a growing need in a broader area of the chemicals and refining processes.
