Titanium Sponge Plant Project
The project is about Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) contract to build a titanium sponge plant with a large capacity. This project will be built next to the existing operations of National Titanium Dioxide Company (Cristal) at Yanbu on the Red Sea coast. The complex will be a joint venture between the client, which is providing the technology. The new facility will be built adjacent to Cristals existing titanium dioxide plant in Yanbu Industrial City. Cristals Titanium Dioxide plant will supply the new production plant with titanium tetrachloride. Titanium, one of the rare metals, is used in a range of industries, such as aircraft engines and materials for aircraft fuselages, and plumbing and heat exchangers at plants, because of its light weight, high intensity, high heat resistance, and high corrosion resistance. To satisfy the rising demand worldwide for titanium sponge for general industrial applications and aerospace. Commissioning is scheduled to commence in early 2017, with commercial operations starting in the third quarter (Q3) of that year.
