Ferric Chloride Project

Al-Kout Industrial Projects Company (AIP) has established itself as the leading Chlor-Alkali producer and supplier in the Middle East. Today, our company aims to chart new territory by focusing on our expansion into the field of water treatment.

As part of this new venture, AIP is constructing a 20,000 TPA capacity Ferric Chloride Plant adjacent to existing facilities in one of our newly acquired areas. Ferric Chloride is one of the main water treatment chemicals used as a flocculent in the process of settling down impurities. A portion of the final products from our existing Chlor-Alkali Plant will be used as raw material in the new facility to produce Ferric Chloride, thereby giving AIP an expanded product portfolio and wider operational flexibility. In addition to adding value to the company, this project is also an import substitution setup that will provide a tangible benefit to the State of Kuwait, as a locally produced product will eliminate or lessen the need for certain imports.

Al-Kout has selected German Chemieanlagenbau Chemnitz GmbH (CAC) for the front-end engineering and design (FEED) portion of the contract. The German firm will provide detailed engineering and will supply Al-Kout with proprietary equipment for the Ferric Chloride Project. The source for the essential raw material, iron, is scrap metal, which is plentiful and easily acquirable in Kuwait. The proposed facility will have provisions for further expansion of up to 40,000 TPA of Ferric Chloride.

Detailed engineering is currently nearing completion and the procurement of equipment is in progress, with site preparation activities also being conducted in parallel with the aforementioned processes. The new facility is expected to be ready by mid-2019.
