An India-based Nuberg Engineering, a global engineering, procurement and construction (EPC), fabrication and project management company, said that it has won a contract to set up a $150-million industrial chemical complex for UAE’s leading industrial conglomerate, Al Ghaith Industries.
This will be Nuberg’s biggest contract till date in its 19-year history, and the complex will have two phases, said a statement from the company.
In the first phase, 350-tonnes-per-day (tpd) caustic soda and 60-tpd hydrogen peroxide plants is set to come up at the Khalifa Industrial Zone (Kizad) in Abu Dhabi, UAE, it added.
The completion of the project will make Al Ghaith Industries the largest manufacturer of caustic soda in the UAE, it said.
It will also make Nuberg the largest EPC company in UAE for the chlor alkali industry, having done three out of the four chlor alkali projects in the UAE already, said the statement.
AK Tyagi, managing director, Nuberg Engineering, said: “This is an overwhelming endorsement of our leadership in the EPC space for chemical process plants.”
“We are grateful to the Al Ghaith Industries leadership for continuing to repose faith in our abilities to provide world class EPC services. This historic day in Nuberg’s two decade old history is sure to act as a catalyst to help us reach new heights of excellence and innovation,” he added.
Ali Hamel, chairman, Al Ghaith Industries , said: “This major project is a leap of growth towards becoming the pivotal catalyst for the Chlor Alkali industry in the Middle East and North Africa (Mena) region.”
“It will enable us to become the leader in catering to the increased demand for caustic soda in the Middle East and Africa as well as create new market opportunities,” he added.
This would be Nuberg’s fourth consecutive EPC project for Al Ghaith. The first of which is set to be commissioned in September 2015, it stated. –
“Most of the equipment like vessels and storage tanks for the project at UAE will be manufactured in our Gujarat facility which has a production capacity of 250 tonnes per month,” Nuberg Engineering MD A K Tyagi said.
Its first Chlor alkali project with Al Ghaith involved a 140 TPD capacity plant while the second signed in October last year was also for a similar capacity.
The third project involved the execution of a Calcium Chloride EPC contract.
The majority of the equipment will be built and exported from Nuberg’s 1,15,000 sq m manufacturing facility in Jhagadia near Ankeleshwar in Gujarat.
