MUMBAI, INDIA: ThyssenKrupp Industrial Solutions has been awarded a contract by GACL-Nalco Alkalies & Chemicals Private Limited (GNAL), for its grassroots membrane cell caustic soda-chlorine project.

GNAL is a joint venture formed between Gujarat Alkalies and Chemicals (GACL) and National Aluminium Company (NALCO). The plant with a planned production capacity of 800 tons of caustic soda per day will be located in Dahej, Gujarat.

ThyssenKrupp will provide know-how, basic and detailed engineering services, supply of proprietary equipment, procurement/inspection, erection and commissioning supervision services and performance guarantee test for the caustic soda-chlorine plant. After completion, it will be the largest single-train caustic soda-chlorine plant regarding capacity to have been put up in India, so far.

The plant will deploy ThyssenKrupp’s leading membrane cell technology which is at work across a majority of Indian caustic soda installations. At the heart of the plant will be the group’s latest, energy and emission-friendly membrane cell elements.

“ThyssenKrupp is well-recognized in India and abroad for plants for the production of caustic soda, chlorine and chlorine derivatives. Over 75 percent of the installed caustic soda chlorine membrane cell capacities in the country is based on our proprietary bipolar design membrane cells. They are setting standards for energy savings and sustainability,” said D Samudra, CEO & managing director at ThyssenKrupp Industrial Solutions (India).
