New Delhi/India – Nuberg EPC has been awarded a 500 TPD Sulfuric Acid Plant project on Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) & Lump Sum Turnkey (LSTK) basis in Egypt. The project, which was awarded during the pandemic, is owned by Sprea Misr, a leading chemicals and plastics manufacturer in Ramadan City, Egypt. Nuberg EPC will be the single-point solution company responsible from concept to commissioning of the project. It is also the globally recognized Sulfuric Acid technology supplier.

The 500 TPD Sulfuric Acid Plant project will be based on the latest Double Contact Double Absorption (DCDA) process technology. The Double contact process is used for the production of sulfuric acid in high concentrations which is required for industrial purposes. The project also incorporates a 5 MW turbine with a steam-based power generation plant with a complete bypass arrangement. This is the first time that Nuberg EPC is building a turbine unit for electricity production.

Sulfuric Acid produced in the plants will be provided to the agriculture industry for the production of urea and other fertilizers.

This project comes as another milestone for Nuberg EPC in Egypt as it is the fourth turnkey project for the company. Nuberg has also completed three other turnkey projects in Egypt namely, a Caustic Soda plant for the Egyptian Petrochemical Company in Alexandria, a Calcium Chloride plant for TCI Sanmar Chemicals in Port Said, and a Sulfuric Acid plant for Agrochem in Alexandria.
