The Egyptian company El Nasr Co has awarded India's Nuberg with a contract for technology, engineering and construction of hydrogen peroxide plant in Giza, Egypt.
Noida/India — The € 15 million turnkey project will manufacture hydrogen peroxide with a production capacity of 70 tons per day (50 % H2O2) technical, chemical & food grade. The contractor's scope of services includes technology, process know-how, basic and detailed engineering, project management, supply and supervision of erection & construction work as well as supervision services during start-up and commissioning.
Sweden based EB Nuberg will offer proprietary, high-yield hydrogen peroxide technology and process design services for the establishment of facility. The plant production process will be based on auto-oxidation technology developed and improvised by the Indian company. The hydrogen peroxide manufacturing process involves cyclic hydrogenation and oxidation of the working solution followed by extraction of crude H2O2 from the working solution. Thus the plant will comprise three main sections viz hydrogenation, oxidation and extraction Section.
This project comes as the company's fourth consecutive specialty chemical turnkey project in Egypt, following a caustic soda plant for Egyptian Petrochemical Company in Alexandria, a calcium chloride plant for TCI Sanmar Chemical in Port Said and a sulphuric acid plant for Agrochem in Alexandria.
Mr. AK Tyagi, chairman and managing director, Nuberg, said "We are glad that our capabilities and world-class project execution quality is being recognised internationally. Egypt is one of the most promising markets for us. We are thankful to El Nasr Co for Intermediate Chemicals for awarding this hydrogen peroxide project to Nuberg. This newly signed agreement will strengthen our strategic position in Egypt where we are already executing number of turnkey projects."
