Chlorum Solutions LLC (São Paulo, Brazil) will use thyssenkrupp nucera AG & Co. KG (Dortmund, Germany) technology for its next two chlor-alkali plants in Brazil. The company has ordered two skid mounted plants with BM2.7 electrolysis technology from a supplier of world-leading technologies for high-efficiency electrolysis plants. The two chlor-alkali electrolysis plants will each provide the company with a production capacity of 45 ton/d of chlorine. They will produce sodium hypochlorite, hydrochloric acid and caustic soda.
The first chlor-alkali plant will be installed in the Brazilian state of Santa Catarina and the second in Minas Gerais. thyssenkrupp nucera will provide engineering, equipment (mostly pre-assembled and tested on skid) and consulting services during the installation and commissioning of the plant.
“Our solutions are tailor-made to the specific needs of our customers. That is why we only work with partners who meet our high standards of efficiency and quality, but also safety and environmental compatibility. The electrolyzers from thyssenkrupp nucera are therefore our choice,” says Alfredo Kerzner, CEO of Chlorum Solutions.
The modular concept of thyssenkrupp nucera’s chlor-alkali plant for smaller capacities offers significant savings in construction costs and enables fast, simple and cost-effective assembly. The complete plant is prefabricated in modules that only need erected and connected on-site. This approach significantly reduces project risks and duration. Both plants are planned to operate in the second quarter of 2024.
“Chlorum Solution is a pioneer in providing an environmentally friendly, innovative and safe solution for the supply of chlorine and its derivatives. We are pleased that the company has chosen our technology. This is a further demonstration of the value proposition that our plants and technology services can provide customers with our energy-efficient products,” says Gerhard Henßen, managing director of thyssenkrupp nucera Italy.
Chlorum Solutions specializes in the construction and operation of small scale chlorine plants for hydrochloric acid and hypochlorite production and aims to build several new plants in the coming years.
Thyssenkrupp nucera offers world-leading technologies for high-efficiency electrolysis plants. The company has extensive in-depth knowledge of engineering, procurement, and construction of electrochemical plants and a strong track record of over 600 projects with a total rating of over 10 GW already successfully installed. The modular designed thyssenkrupp nucera’s chlor-alkali electrolysis plant for smaller capacities offers significant savings in construction costs and enables fast, simple and cost-effective installation. In addition, the latest BM2.7 single-element generation enables major energy savings by using continuously optimized design and the latest energy-saving components.
