Nuberg wins $15mn Abu Dhabi chemical plant deal
Indian industrial specialist picks up phase II of Al Ghaith project
Al Ghaith Industries in Abu Dhabi has awarded a $15mn engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract to build a Chlor Alkali chemical plant to India's Nuberg Engineering.
The plant will allow Al Ghaith to double its capacity to produce caustic sosa from 140 to 280 metric tons per day.
The contract represents the second phase of works at the site. The first, which was a project worth $19mn, is currently in the commissioning phase, while the newly-awarded deal is due for completion in the first quarter of next year.
The caustic soda plant will also produce a range of co-products including hydrochloric acid, sodium hypochlorite and calcium chloride, which are used by the region's oil and gas industry.
Nuberg Engineering is a specialist in manufacturing chemicals and petchems plants.
Its chairman, AK Tyagi, said: "We are extremely happy to have won the project. Nuberg leverages its proven track record of about two decades in executing caustic soda/chlor alkali, hydrogen peroxide, sulphuric acid and other chemical process plants in more than 30 countries."
Ali Hamel, chairman of Al Gaith Industries, said: "This partnership is going to boost the diversification of our products and catapult the growth of our company, making it one of the largest in its field."
