Sino-Singapore Chemical Methanol Plant resumed production in autumn and started successfully

Latest News: On September 18, Henan Energy Zhongxin Chemical Co., Ltd. produced crude methanol through methanol synthesis, marking the company’s methanol plant’s success in resuming production in autumn. The company’s methanol plant was fired from the thermal power boiler at 13:00 on September 13 to 21:00 on September 18. After all the cadres and workers of the company worked hard for 128 hours, the methanol plant with an annual output of 300,000 tons was successfully opened up.

Precise policy maintenance

Since July, the company’s maintenance work has been fully launched, “fighting high temperature, ensuring safety, improving quality, and rushing progress”. This summer maintenance work has been carried out in an orderly manner as planned, and the company has planned ahead and carefully organized. All staff carried forward the fine style of “dare to fight tough battles and be good at winning battles”, and steadily promoted equipment maintenance, hidden danger rectification, equipment cleaning and maintenance with high quality and efficiency, laying a solid foundation for the long-term operation of the equipment in the next step. In order to ensure the high-quality and efficient completion of this maintenance task, the company has formulated a detailed maintenance plan, identified the responsible person for the maintenance task, and refined the responsibility objectives. It has successively completed technical transformation projects such as nano-mesoporous insulation blanket insulation for 9.8MPa steam pipelines, SIS valves and DCS valves in methanol tank farms, and UPS dual power supply for the main device control system.

Strengthen internal control for management

Focusing on “strict management, increasing efficiency, and preventing risks”, the company has always adhered to the general keynote of seeking progress while maintaining stability, aiming at safe and efficient production of installations, focusing on tapping potentials and increasing efficiency, focusing on the reform of state-owned enterprises, learning and educating party history, Taking the construction of the ability and style year as an opportunity, we will unswervingly fight the tough battle of “seeking survival, creating benefits, and seeking development”. In response to the start-up of this autumn plant, the relevant departments of the company jointly compiled the “One Review and Three Cases of Methanol Plant Start-up”, and issued it to each branch to carry out all-staff learning. At the same time, focusing on the possible abnormal situations of safety and environmental protection, detailed emergency plans and preventive measures should be formulated in advance. All functional departments will implement the spirit of the instructions of the mobilization meeting, track the start-up process throughout the process, and investigate various hidden dangers to ensure that rectification is in place. Personnel, safety, progress, quality and environment are fully controlled.

Riveted foot production boosts energy

Since 13:00 on September 13th, the 4# boiler was successfully ignited for one time. At 1:17am on September 14th, the air separation unit was rush-run and linked for trial operation. It was separated and entered into precooling, activation and reheating. At 14:00 on September 17th, oxygen, Nitrogen qualified for delivery. At 16:00 on September 18th, the gasifier was ignited and successfully delivered crude gas. At 21:00 on September 18th, the methanol synthesis gas connection to produce crude methanol successfully completed the task. This device lasted 128 hours. Nodes are 53 hours ahead. At 6:50 on September 19, the dual furnaces were combined with gas. At present, the methanol plant is running smoothly and all parameters are normal. In order to strictly implement the main responsibility and eliminate potential hidden dangers of equipment, the company has carried out “zero leakage” governance activities, focusing on “running, running, dripping and leaking” of equipment pipelines, operation of dynamic and static equipment, control of production process parameters, and special operations on site. Safety monitoring and other issues are strictly checked, and it is required to carry out strict inspection of hidden dangers, increase the frequency of inspections and rectification work.

Tighten the strings of epidemic prevention and control

The company strengthens its sense of responsibility, and with a high sense of political responsibility and mission, strictly implements various epidemic prevention and control measures, intensifies verification efforts, and strengthens the control, inspection, and closed-loop management of personnel returning to the factory. Keep an eye on key nodes, strengthen prevention and control measures, and build a dense line of defense against the epidemic. Actively cooperate with the Huojia County Government to carry out nucleic acid testing for all employees to effectively identify risk groups.
