Air Liquide lon term supply contract with ThyssenKrupp Steel

PARIS, FRANCE: Air Liquide has signed a major long-term supply contract with ThyssenKrupp Steel Europe AG in the Rhine-Ruhr area, Germany. Deliveries under the agreement include 4,600 tonne per day of oxygen, nitrogen and argon, which will be supplied to ThyssenKrupp’s steelworks based in the Duisburg cluster, the largest steel production region in Europe, supplying notably the needs of the automotive industry in Germany.

The gases will be supplied via Air Liquide’s 500 kilometre local pipeline network, which already serves customers in the steel, chemical and petrochemical industries in the Rhine-Ruhr area. This pipeline is fed by Air Liquide Air Separation Units, including Germany’s largest oxygen production plant (with a capacity of 2,400 tonne per day), which was started up by Air Liquide in 2012.

“This new contract marks a further step in our longstanding cooperative relationship with ThyssenKrupp, one of the leading producers of steel in Europe. We are proud to have been selected as a key provider in the metal industry and look forward to bolstering our relationship with Germany’s largest steelmaker. This milestone illustrates our strategy of expanding in industrial basins and our ability to capitalize on our existing assets to gain new markets,” said Guy Salzgeber, member of Executive Committee, Air Liquide.
