Nuberg Engineering has landed a $35m contract to build a new chemical plant at Jubail Industrial City in Saudi Arabia.

The Indian-headquartered company said that it won the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract to build a plant that will produce sulfolane and other speciality chemicals against a number of international EPC firms.

The plant is part of a broader, $60m complex being developed for Addar Chemicals Co - a Saudi conglomerate headed by the former MD and vice-chairman of Saudi Basic Industries, HE Dr. Ibrahim Ibn Salamah.

It will partner on the complex with Larsen & Toubro, which is providing detailed engineering works. The plant is due to be brought online by the first quarter of 2017.

Nuberg Engineering MD A.K. Tyagi, said: "Being a specialised EPC supplier for chemical plants, Saudi Arabia is a core country for Nuberg EPC business and Addar our key customer.

"This EPC contract represents another significant step in building our capability and consolidating our position as a major EPC company of Indian origin in the MENA (Middle East North Africa) & Gulf region."
