Nuberg is an Indian EPC firm based in Delhi.

Indian engineering, construction, and procurement (EPC) contractor Nuberg has revealed exclusively to Construction Week that the calcium chloride plant, which it is building alongside Muscat Securities Market-listed (MSM) Oman Chlorine, will be located in the Sultanate's Sohar region.

The Delhi-headquartered firm told Construction Week that the facility will be a Greenfield calcium chloride plant with a production capacity of 80 metric tonnes per day (MTPD).

Additionally, Nuberg will also work on the expansion of Oman Chlorine’s existing 45MTPD chlor-akali plant, which upon completion, will have an increased production capacity of 75MTPD.

Nuberg told Construction Week that both the projects are being carried out under EPC and lump sum turnkey (LSTK) basis. The firm will provide front end engineering design (Feed), basic and detail engineering, fabrication, and manufacturing services, in addition to supply and procurement, construction supervision and commissioning, project management, handover, and training services.

Both the plants will be commissioned in 2020-21, according to Nuberg.

Speaking to Construction Week, chairman and managing director (CMD) of Nuberg, AK Tyagi said: “We have installed over 20 chlorine and derivatives plants worldwide, but this project will be our first involvement in Oman.

“The project will have best-in-class technology and emissions according to global standards. We have the necessary local knowledge, capabilities and competencies to deliver world-class turnkey solutions,” Tyagi added. 

In November 2019, Oman Chlorine said that it signed a contract with Nuberg to build a calcium chloride plant that will have an installed production capacity of 80MTPD.

Oman Chlorine said at that time, the plant would “cater the existing and growing demand of calcium chloride".
