Uzbekistan: Engineering Contract Thyssenkrupp Wins Order for Modular Chlorine Plant
Thyssenkrupp Industrial Solutions has secured a contract with Serba Dinamik International for the engineering and procurement of a new modular chlor-alkali plant. The greenfield plant with a capacity of 90 tons of chlorine per day will be built in the Hazarasp Free Economic Zone in the Republic of Uzbekistan.
Essen/Germany — Thyssenkrupp has won a second order for a modular chlorine plant from Serba Dinamik — following a previous project in Tanzania. The new plant in Uzbekistan will produce, inter alia, caustic soda (NaOH) flakes, liquid chlorine and sodium hypochlorite, mainly for the export market. The start-up is planned for the second quarter of 2022. The plant will be the first foreign investment in the country's Hazarasp area.
The engineering company has developed a standardized skid-mounted chlor-alkali plant. According to the group, the modular plant concept significantly reduces construction work and allows fast, simple and low-cost installation. The complete chlorine plant is prefabricated in modules which only need to be set up and connected to each other on site. With this approach, project risks and duration can be reduced significantly. The high energy efficiency of the electrolysis cells results in a light ecological footprint, and the process is based on a close to zero emissions design.
