Nuberg EPC has been selected by SCE Chemicals, Morocco, as the EPC lump sum contractor to establish a new chlor-alkali plant. The plant will produce caustic soda, hydrochloric acid and sodium hypochlorite chlorine.

The new production line will be established at Jorf Lasfar Parc Industrial Medz in El-Jadida, Morocco, and is due for completion in late 2020. The project was penned down at SCE Chemicals office in Casablanca, Morocco, where AK Tyagi, chairman and managing director, Nuberg, Moutawakkil Abdelkebir, general manager, SCE, and dignitaries from both companies were present.

SCE is an industrial company operating in the fields of chemistry and agriculture. It holds considerable resources for producing and marketing its products such as sulfonic acid, sodium silicate, SLES, aluminium sulphate and others. The specialised areas of SCE are the detergent and cosmetics, the water treatment and the timber industry. Chlorine and caustic soda are important raw materials for pharmaceutical products.

"We are honoured that Nuberg EPC is to deliver its first chlor-alkali plant in Morocco. SCE Chemicals has entrusted us with the opportunity to play a key role in helping them to build the plant," commented Tyagi.

Nuberg EPC has a proven track record of global experience in setting up more than 20 chlor-alkali plants around the world, including Egypt, Sweden, UAE, Saudi Arabia, Bangladesh and now adding Morocco in the list.

"The essential capabilities and project management competencies make Nuberg EPC deliver best-in-class technology along with a complete world-class turnkey solution," continued Tyagi.

Chlorine derivatives produced from the plant will be used for disinfection and water treatment industrial processes. The plant will have the most advanced bipolar membrane cell technology licensed from UK based Inovyn.
