The exclusive agreement covers EPC & LSTK services and solutions for chlor alkali plant and calcium chloride plant in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia and will be executed for Saudi Factory for Chlorine and Alkalies (SACHLO), Midchem’s group company. The production capacity will be 60 TPD for chlor alkali plant which is an expansion of its previous plant of 60 TPD making it a total of 120 TPD, and 150 TPD for calcium chloride plant.

SACHLO is one of the largest manufacturers of chlor alkali and chlorine derivatives in Saudi Arabia.

Chemicals produced in the facility will serve the needs of downstream and petrochemical, hydrocarbon and energy industry in the domestic Saudi market as well as the Middle East & Africa (MEA) and Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) region.

The chemical project is Midchem's second alliance with Nuberg EPC after successful commissioning of its 60 TPD greenfield chlor alkali plant designed and delivered for SACHLO in 2012. Being its fifth turnkey project in Saudi Arabia and second from Midchem, the project is a testimony of Nuberg’s global expertise in project management capabilities, engineering services, international quality construction and on time project delivery. This association firmly establishes Nuberg EPC’s world-class and well recognized credentials for EPC projects in Saudi Arabia.

Mr. AK Tyagi, Managing Director, Nuberg said, “Saudi Arabia is an important market for us and it continues to offer good opportunities.
