Jun '17
Nuberg, a global EPC and LSTK company for specialty chemicals, has been chosen by Egyptian Petrochemicals Company as a single-point solution company, from concept to commissioning, for caustic soda-chlorine plant in Alexandria. The project envisions setting up a turnkey project with production capacity of 228 TPD which can go up to 342 TPD in future.

The plant will be based on new generation state-of-the-art bipolar membrane cell technology (bi-chlor) from INEOS Technologies, UK which is widely sought out by caustic soda manufacturers for its best in class power consumption, longevity, low capex/opex and environmental considerations. The plant will produce caustic soda, chlorine, hydrogen and other chlorine derivatives. Chlorine produced will be used as a raw material in existing EDC/VCM plant for PVC production.

The contract was signed by AK Tyagi, MD, Nuberg and Chemist Gaber A Hassan, chairman, EPC in Alexandria.

Tyagi said, "We are thankful to Egyptian Petrochemicals Company for entrusting our turnkey project engineering capabilities and our EPC services and solutions for its caustic soda plant. We are excited to partner with INEOS Technologies once again, strengthening our relationship with them even further."

Hassan said, "The caustic soda plant is of great importance to our company in specific and to the petrochemical sector in general. I would like to highlight that this project is among the chain of projects that will be executed by our company in near and far future to promote the petrochemical field in Egypt. I would like to congratulate Nuberg on being awarded this order and I am confident that Nuberg has the experience and the expertise to execute an excellent plant in cooperation with the licensor INEOS Technologies."

INEOS Technologies will be the process licensor and supply technology know-how and state-of-the-art electrolyser commissioning services. Caustic soda produced in the plant will be supplied mostly to the markets of Europe, Asia and Africa. Caustic Soda has applications in various industries such as hydrocarbons, paper, chemicals and soaps and detergents industry.

Nuberg's scope of services includes basic and detailed engineering, supply, civil and equipment installation, commissioning of plant and start-up for new bipolar electrolyser as a turnkey project. Nuberg, which is the biggest EPC company for chlor-alkali industry in the UAE, is among world's leading EPC companies for caustic soda-chlorine plants, offering a comprehensive single-point solution to caustic soda manufacturers across the world.
