AkzoNobel awards chlorine plant contract to Tebodin

THE HAGUE, THE NETHERLANDS: AkzoNobel Industrial Chemicals has selected Tebodin for the engineering, procurement and construction management (EPCm) of a new chlorine plant in Frankfurt into state-of-the-art membrane electrolysis technology. The new plant will increase current annual production in Frankfurt by approximately 50 per cent, to 250 kilo tonne of chlorine and 275 kilo tonne of caustic lye. The energy consumption per tonne of product will be improved by nearly 30 per cent.

Construction will start in August 2012. New production facility will come on stream in the fourth quarter of 2013. Tebodin will perform the project with a team of around 70 staff from the Tebodin offices in Hengelo, the Netherlands and Gelsenkirchen, Germany. The consortium of Dutch and German engineers and specialists in the EPCm project team was one of the reasons for AkzoNobel awarding the project to Tebodin. The contribution of local expertise mainly involves all permits, the design and construction site-related aspects which have to comply with the local standards and legislation.
