Global chemicals company Nuberg secured a calcium chloride plant project on EPC and LSTK basis in Port Said, Egypt from TCI Sanmar Chemicals SAE.

The calcium chloride turnkey project’s annual production capacity would be  1,35,000 TPA and is valued at $20m.

Nuberg’s scope of work includes plant design, detailed engineering and procurement of complex chemical equipment for TCI Sanmar for the anhydrous calcium chloride pellets/granules production at its site in Port Said.

The technology supplier for the chemical plant is Zirax from Russia. Zirax’s responsibility will include transferring the technology of production of liquid and anhydrous product and to provide basic engineering and technical regulation documents.

The plant commissioning is planned in the end of 2017.

The calcium chloride plant is a part of Sanmar’s already existing chemical complex, incorporating caustic soda plant, ethylene dichloride (EDC), vinyle chloride monomer (VCM) and PVC plants. This chemical complex produces hydrochloric acid (HCL) which will be used to manufacture calcium chloride (CACL2).

The calcium chloride from the chemical plant will be supplied mostly for the purposes of the markets of North and South America, Western Europe, Middle East, and Africa.

AK Tyagi, chairman, Nuberg Engineering said: "Winning calcium chloride project in Egypt is another testimony of our engineering prowess and turnkey project management capabilities. We are quite happy of our cooperation with Zirax for TCI Sanmar’s calcium chloride plant and we suppose that our this experience in Port Said will consolidate our relationship for joint performance as in current project and in other future possible projects with a high professional involvement to meet the requirements of new customers."

K Satyanarayana Rao, managing director, TCI Sanmar Chemicals, commented:  "The start-up of new calcium chloride granules production plant, which we will build up together with Nuberg and Zirax, will significantly raise TCI Sanmar’s revenues and also allow us to expand our product portfolio."
