About LEARN'22

Would you like to gain in-depth knowledge on how to increase plant production? Or knowledge that may help you decrease the number of unexpected shutdowns?

LEARN’22 is Topsoe’s annual training event for technical staff at hydrogen, methanol, and ammonia plants. Built around the module-based training structure of Topsoe Academy™, LEARN’22 will take you into the classroom and give you in-depth knowledge on how to trim and operate your plant, making it possible to run more safely, increase your production, and avoid unexpected shutdowns.

With LEARN’22, we can cut years off your learning curve. You’ll gain access to the knowledge we’ve acquired through our 75 years of designing new plants, revamping old ones, and supplying catalysts and proprietary equipment. Join LEARN’22 and learn how to assess and evaluate your plant including:

  • General plant assessment theory including heat exchangers, feed purification section, and shift reactors
  • Assessment of the steam reformer and convection section
  • Specific tools to assess performance key-equipment and reactors
  • What to look for during a visual inspection of the reformer tubes
  • And much more… 

The above topics will all be covered during the four full-day courses, taking you through each reactor, their operating windows, and uncovering potential pitfalls.

Who should attend

This training event is designed for younger engineers and operators working within the hydrogen, methanol, or ammonia industries. Although the target group is primarily younger engineers, engineers with more experience can also benefit from this event and get their knowledge updated.

Target group

  • Years of plant experience - Engineers
  • 0-2 - High benefit
  • 2-5 - High benefit
  • >5 - Medium benefit
  • Prerequisites - Basic practical knowledge on plant operation, level of English: Good

The training will consist of group sessions, discussions, presentations, and a high level of interaction ensuring optimum learning. Facilitated by Topsoe technical experts, the training event will cover a wide range of topics associated with hydrogen, methanol, and ammonia plants and offers the opportunity to talk to Topsoe specialists about specific technical and operational issues. The training will have two tracks; hydrogen & methanol plants or ammonia plants, so your specific technology will be in focus.

In order to ensure high-quality training, we only have 40 seats and enrollment will be treated on a first-come, first-served basis.

Below please find more detailed information and schedule for our hydrogen & methanol, and ammonia tracks.

Please note a minimum of 6 participants is required for the different tracks to be offered.

Schedule for hydrogen & methanol plants

Day 1: Steam Reformer Assessment

Our Steam Reformer Assessment course will teach you how to perform “health checks” on your steam reformer and use the results to trim the performance of this critical plant component. If you want more information on the Steam Reformer Assessment course, please click here.

Day 2: Plant Assessment

Assessing and optimizing your plant can lead to longer catalyst lifetimes and higher production rates. Our Plant Assessment course will teach you how to do this safely and effectively. If you want more information on the Plant Assessment course, please click here.

Day 3: Loading & Reduction

Proper understanding of the procedures and safety precautions required in catalyst loading and reduction can save valuable time and maximize catalyst performance. Our Loading & Reduction course will make sure you are prepared for your next catalyst replacement.If you want more information on the Loading & Reduction course, please click here.

Day 4: Damage Mechanisms

On day 4 you will dive into the various causes of plant damage mechanisms and how to prevent them, so you can avoid unplanned shut-downs.

At the end of day 4, it is possible to take an exam to prove you have a good understanding of the topic. If you pass the exam, you will receive 'Certified by Topsoe' diploma of accomplishment. 

Day 5:  Meet-the-Experts and pick a tour of one of our facilities

On the fifth day, you can choose either a tour of Topsoe’s state-of-the-art R&D facilities or a visit to our world-class catalyst production facilities. Please note that there is a limited number of participants for each of the tours and enrollment will be treated on a first-come, first-served basis. 

During the afternoon, we will give you the opportunity to meet up with some of our experts with decades of experience within technical services and plant design, experts who on a daily basis help solve operational problems for plants around the world. You will be able to discuss the issues that your plant is dealing with on a one-to-one basis and get some input and ideas to how you can improve your plant's operation.
