INOVYN BICHLOR™ electrolysers selected by Koyuncu Group for major investment in Konya, Turkey

INOVYN is delighted to announce that it has been selected by Koyuncu Group to supply chlor alkali technology as part of a €16million investment at a new production facility in Konya province, Turkey.

As one of the world's leading chlor alkali technology solution providers, with over 100 years of electrolysis experience and electrolyser design, INOVYN will provide state of the art BICHLOR™ bipolar electrolysers for a new 33,000m2 facility that will produce chlorine, caustic, sodium hypochlorite and hydrochloric acid.  The new facility will have an annual production capacity of 50,000 tonnes, with potential for further investment in the production of derivatives in the future.

Engineering, construction and start-up for the project will be provided by Vespro A.Ş., an experienced supplier of process equipment for chemical and industrial plants, both domestically and internationally.  The project duration is 15 months and production is planned to start by the beginning of 2022.

“When selecting the technologies for our investment, choosing environmentally friendly, sustainable and energy efficient cutting-edge technology was essential.”

Terry Healy, Business Manager for INOVYN Electrochemical Technology, said:

“We are pleased to be recognised as electrochemical experts and a trusted partner with a significant track record for high-quality products.  We look forward to a successful project with Vespro and Koyuncu, delivering on our commitment to reducing the overall lifecycle cost for our customers.”
