Air Liquide to supply industrial gases in Singapore through SOXAL

PARIS, FRANCE: Air Liquide, through SOXAL, its Singapore wholly-owned subsidiary, will invest around €35 million (S$60 million) to expand its industrial gas infrastructure on Jurong Island. It will supply oxygen and nitrogen under a long term supply agreement to CCD (Singapore), a joint venture between Taiwan’s Chang Chun and Dairen Chemical.

The new Air Separation Unit (ASU) will be connected to Air Liquide’s pipeline network. It will increase the oxygen production capacity of the existing Air Liquide infrastructure by 20%. It will also produce argon for its industrial merchant activity.

Air Liquide will supply three new plants of CCD (Singapore) producing Allyl Alcohol (AAL), Vinyl Acetate Monomer (VAM) and Cumene, which are used to produce a variety of products ranging from plastics, paints, adhesives to textiles.

Mr Huang Fu-Chu, CEO, CCD (Singapore) said: “Singapore’s Jurong Island is among the world’s top 10 petrochemical hubs. We are delighted to tap into SOXAL’s well-established production units and network which will ensure increased reliability of supply.”

Jean-Marc de Royere, Senior Vice-President Asia Pacific and a member of the Air Liquide Executive Committee, said: “Air Liquide is pleased to support and grow with Chang Chun and Dairen Chemical as they increase their manufacturing footprint outside Taiwan. This newest investment underscores our commitment to Singapore’s chemicals and energy sector, to deliver an efficient and reliable gas supply with leading-edge technologies. Asia remains a promising zone for Air Liquide.”
