Nuberg EPC has been awarded two sulfuric acid plant projects in Gamasa City, Egypt, and Oromia, Ethiopia. The 500 million tpd and 5 MW Rating STG Set in Egypt and 50 tpd sulfuric acid and 40 tpd aluminium sulfate revamp project in Ethiopia have been won on EPC and LSTK basis. The Egypt project is scheduled to be delivered in 22 months and the Ethiopia project in 15 months from the contract LC opening date.

The projects will draw upon Nuberg EPC's sulfuric acid technology, Double Contact Double Absorption (DCDA), and execution capability. In this process, the product gases sulfur dioxide (SO2) and sulfur trioxide (SO3) are passed through absorption towers twice to achieve further absorption and production of higher-grade sulfuric acid.

A. K. Tyagi, MD, Nuberg EPC, commented: “We look forward to further strengthen the faith of the clients in our sulfuric acid turnkey project expertise and engineering talent. The whole industry faced challenging times last one year and yet we managed to deliver to our commitments in time. We will be looking forward to delivering ahead of schedule for an early start to our clients.”

“Nuberg EPC's scope of services for these projects include process design and technology including product and technology development, process know-how and licensing, basic engineering, front end engineering design (FEED), construction management, operation and maintenance, detailed engineering, project management, commissioning, EPC & LSTK Solutions, heavy fabrication, and start-up of the plant.
