Atlas Methanol Trinidad, Industrial Water Treatment, Point Lisas, Trinidad & Tobago
Client:Lurgi Oel-Gas-Chemie GmbH
Location:Point Lisas, Trinidad & Tobago
Capacity:1.680 m3/d


  • Engineering and construction of industrial water treatment plants for the world’s largest methanol plant (Lurgi-MegaMethanol® system) at Point Lisas, Trinidad
    • Thermal seawater desalination system (type ME-TVC)
    • Demineralisation plant (boiler feed water)
  • The water desalinated in the MED system is fed into the water treatment system along with the condensate produced in the production of methanol. This, in turn, supplies the methanol plant with fully desalinated boiler feed water demineralised by ion exchange. Because the process condensate is recycled, the use of fresh water can be reduced to a minimum.
