PARIS, FRANCE: Air Liquide has been awarded two major long-term contracts by BOE Technology Group in China, to supply ultra-pure carrier molecules to its two latest cutting-edge flat panel display fabs. These plants will both manufacture large numbers of advanced flat panel displays. The first plant (called BOE Ordos G5.5 AMOLED fab) will be based in Ordos, Inner-Mongolia and the other plant (called BOE Hefei G8.5 TFT-LCD fab) in Hefei, Anhui province, China.

The new BOE fab in Ordos will be commissioned in late 2013, and will produce small and medium-sized advanced LTPS & AMOLED displays for mobile devices on Generation 5.5 size glasses. Air Liquide will invest in a large on-site generator to produce ultra-high purity nitrogen and in bulk gases (oxygen, argon and hydrogen) supply infrastructure.

For the BOE fab in Hefei, located near the BOE Hefei G6 fab already supplied by Air Liquide, those same molecules will be supplied by pipeline from Air Liquide facilities, located in Hefei. This fab will be commissioned in early 2014 and will produce displays on Generation 8.5 size glasses. Air Liquide will also invest in the necessary back-up infrastructure for both sites.

“We are honoured by this long-term partnership and the confidence placed in Air Liquide by BOE for their latest cutting-edge display fabs. These new contracts, following those signed by Air Liquide to supply BOE sites in Beijing (G5 fab), in Chengdu (G4.5 fab) and in Hefei (G6 fab), reinforce our position in the fast-growing flat panel industry in China and advanced display technologies in Asia, and affirm the value and competitiveness of our offer,” said Jean-Marc de Royere, Vice President for Asia Pacific, and member of the Executive Committee, Air Liquide.
