Air Liquide to invest €70 million plus in Poland

PARIS, FRANCE: Air Liquide and KGHM Polska Miedz have signed a long-term agreement to supply gases to the copper production site in Glogow, located in the West of the country, 100 km from Wroclaw. The company will invest more than €70 million in an air separation unit (ASU) with a production capacity of 1,500 tonne of oxygen per day. The ASU will be commissioned early 2015.

The unit will be designed and manufactured by Air Liquide Engineering & Construction teams based in Poland and France. KGHM will use this oxygen in its modern copper production process, improving efficiency and reducing atmospheric emissions.

Poland is one of the largest countries and economies in Central Europe, with industrial markets enjoying high growth rates. Air Liquide has been consistently increasing its presence in this country by focusing on key investments in the Polish industry. With this new investment in Glogow, Air Liquide is strengthening further its network of plants in this country.

“With the KGHM investment, Air Liquide is reinforcing its global position in the dynamic market of Poland. Overall, Air Liquide is maintaining its investment pace in line with the group’s long-term strategy, which notably consists of seizing opportunities for future growth in dynamic economies,” said Guy Salzgeber, Member, Executive Committee, Air Liquide.
