Uzbek Kungrad Soda Plant Project (Phase I & II)

The EPC contract of Kungrad Soda Plant in Uzbekistan was completed and put into operation in 2006. The plant, with the design capacity of 100,000 tons of soda ash annually, adopts China's proprietary soda ash production technologies and China-made production equipments. As the first chemical project undertaken by a Chinese company in Uzbekistan, the Kungrad Soda Plant Project established CITIC Group's brand image in Uzbekistan and was highly valued by leaders of both countries. 

The phase I project has brought sound economic and social benefits. In 2012, the Uzbek government decided to expand another production capacity of 100,000 tons. In June 2012, CITIC Construction signed the EPC contract with Kungrad Soda Plant. According to the contract, CITIC Construction will expand another annual production capacity of 100,000 tons of soda ash in the original Kungrad soda plant based on some of the existing equipment. The EPC contract covers design, goods supply, construction, commissioning guidance and training. Now the plant has produced trial products, and is about to be completely handed over to the proprietor.
