International Process Plants and BCMC Complete Commissioning of SR Chemical’s Bogura, Bangladesh Chlor-Alkali Plant Complex

PRINCETON JUNCTION, N.J., Dec. 21, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — International Process Plants and Equipment Corp. (IPP) and Bluestar (Beijing) Chemical Machinery Co. Ltd. (BCMC–a unit of ChemChina), announced today that they have completed commissioning of SR Chemical Group’s brand new Chlor-Alkali production complex yielding 30,000 tons/yr of 32% caustic soda.

IPP and BCMC have been delighted to serve as the plant supplier for the Chlor-Alkali plant. This challenging project in a remote rural area of Northern Bangladesh was only able to be accomplished through a close collaboration of BCMC, SR Chemical, and IPP. The COVID-19 pandemic delayed the final installation and testing work due to travel restrictions and health precautions, but BCMC and SR Chemical’s talented project teams managed to revise their work plans to accommodate for the changing circumstances without stopping the project’s progress,” said Ross Gale, Vice President of International Process Plants.

SR Chemical is proud to bring over 1,000 technical jobs to the rural Sherpur, Bogura community, providing demanded chemicals for the textile, paper, water treatment, and disinfectant industries domestically as well as abroad. The plant’s business will have a significant economic impact to the area surrounding plant’s location and throughout Bangladesh,” stated Mr. Asif Rabbani, SR Chemical’s Managing Director. “We are very pleased that despite the challenges in implementing a remote greenfield project during COVID-19 with a critical international team, the largest industrial plant in the country’s northern region has been commissioned in 2020. Our plant is critical to Bangladesh’s growth as a major industrial player and a growing exporter of chemical products,” added Mr. Rabbani. “We view this Bogura plant project as a foundation for our future growth across the chemicals sector.”

As the Export Management Services provider for the project, we at AMEX Export Import would like to thank SR Chemical, IPP and BCMC for their terrific collaboration and to congratulate them on successful completion of this important project in the face of challenging circumstances.
