Catalyzer Plant in Qatar

Catalyzers are used to produce high-quality diesel fuels and other chemical products economically and efficiently from natural gas.

Pörner Group (Linz, Austria) was awarded a contract from Süd Chemie AG for the general planning and construction of a facility for the manufacture of industrial catalysts in Qatar. No comparable plant exists worldwide, and the first stage therefore consisted in working out the technical details and a project concept in close collaboration with the client. Pörner Linz was responsible for basic and detailed engineering, procurement and logistics up to construction supervision and commissioning. Competent consulting services, an optimized project organization and modern 3D-software enabled the manufacturing plant to be built and become operational within budget and in a record time of 21 months. In recognition of the professional management of this complex and innovative construction, this project was nominated for the 2008 Austrian State Prize for Consulting.
