Nuberg bags EPC contract for fertilizer plant in India

NOIDA, INDIA: Nuberg Engineering Limited has been awarded an engineering procurement construction (EPC) & lump sum turnkey (LSTK) project by National Fertilizers Limited (NFL) in Panipat, India. The turnkey project plant will manufacture 25000 MTPA mix speciality chemical, sulphur bentonite. Sulphur bentonite is a new type of environment friendly fertiliser used in the agriculture sector for better productivity and yield.

Nuberg has won the turnkey project contract amid the global competition. The company is among the niche global EPC & LSTK companies to have the capability to execute the speciality chemical project, from concept to commissioning. All heavy engineering equipment for the chemical plant will be fabricated and supplied from Nuberg's state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Gujarat, India.

Nuberg's EPC scope of work from concept to commissioning include process know-how, license and technology, technology, basic, front-end engineering design (FEED) and detail engineering, fabrication, procurement and supply, construction and erection of all civil, mechanical, electrical and instrumentation works, installation, obtaining all necessary statutory approvals, testing, mechanical completion, pre-commissioning, commissioning, performance guarantee test run including total project management and handing over the plant on single point responsibility basis.

A boon to farmers, sulphur bentonite has tremendous potential to levitate agriculture in India to new heights. Like nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium, sulphur bentonite is also an essential fertiliser for the crops and is induced in the soil in forms of small pallets. Regular use of this special fertiliser will protect the agricultural field from any sort of damage that happens due to the use of other chemicals. The unusual sulphur bentonite fertiliser is a panacea for the soil making it fertile as a result increasing the yielding capacity of crops. This enhanced nutrient of the crop will not only benefit the farmers but will also be advantageous for the consumers.

“This contract repositions Nuberg and gives a different league in the EPC industry. We have always been present in the fertiliser industry and have successfully delivered projects on time but this notable project levitates us to the niche of the mix fertiliser industry,” said AK Tyagi, chairman, Nuberg Engineering.

“Our experienced engineering team and project professionals will utilise their extensive experience and expertise to place the project in the best position moving forward. This project adds to Nuberg's depth of projects the company has participated in as well as strengthens its longstanding leadership position in EPC & LSTK projects globally,” added Tyagi.
