Air Liquide signs new contract with Posco in South Korea

PARIS, FRANCE: Air Liquide has signed a contract with Posco E&C, the Engineering and Construction division of Posco, to design and build two large air separation units (ASU), each of which will have an oxygen production capacity of 3,750 tonne per day. This is the largest production capacity designed so far for a steelmaker by Air Liquide.

These two new units will be installed at Posco’s Gwangyang and Pohang sites in South Korea. The oxygen they produce will enable Gwangyang site to support Posco’s increase in global steel production. The second unit will meet growing demand for oxygen in connection with the construction of a second steel plant (with a production capacity of 2 million tonne per year) on the Pohang site.

Air Liquide has been working with Posco for more than 25 years, and has already supplied it with 17 ASUs on these two sites in South Korea.

“Air Liquide’s strong historical relationship with Posco and mutual trust are major factors supporting our fruitful collaboration. A true understanding of our customers’ needs and constraints lies at the heart of Air Liquide’s strategy of offering customer focused cutting-edge technology solutions,” said Francois Darchis, Member, Executive Committee, Air Liquide.
