PARIS, FRANCE/TATARSTAN, RUSSIA: Air Liquide is pursuing its long-term development in Russia, and starting-up a new air separation unit that will produce oxygen and nitrogen in the Special Economic Zone ‘Alabuga’ in the Volga region, Tatarstan. This new state-of-the-art air separation unit will produce 200 tonne per day of oxygen and nitrogen to supply the current and future needs of industrial customers in the region.

It is fully standardized, highly cost efficient, comes in fully packaged modules and offers many benefits, including compact design and layout and simpler operations and maintenance. Air Liquide is planning to further develop its business in Alabuga by creating a pipeline network and developing supply chain for its customers. Air Liquide’s overall investment in this project is around €35 million.

“The standardization of these units is an example of the innovative capacity of the Group when it comes to ensuring the efficiency of its operations and improving competitiveness. With the latest development, Air Liquide will be able to expand its industrial merchant offer in this fast-growing area in Russia. This investment is in line with the Group’s programme of targeted investments in expanding industrial basins in developing economies,” said Guy Salzgeber, Vice-President North and Central Europe and Member of the Executive Committee, Air Liquide.
