PENNSYLVANIA, US: Air Products will increase production of gaseous nitrogen and expand its nitrogen pipeline in the Gumi National Industrial Complex, North Gyeongsang Province, Korea to serve the increasing demand of its electronics customers in the country’s largest inland industrial complex.

Air Products will build a new nitrogen plant at its site in the Gumi National Industrial Complex 2 and will expand its nitrogen pipeline to Complex 5. The pipeline currently delivers nitrogen to nearly 20 long-term photovoltaic and semiconductor customers across Complexes 1 to 4. The new plant is expected to be onstream in the summer of 2012 and will serve the increasing needs of existing customers as well as new demand in Complex 5.

“Air Products has already secured a strong position in the Gumi National Industrial Complex and are pleased to bring new capacity to this strategic industrial hub. This additional capacity provides our customers with a reliable supply in a cost-competitive way. This is exactly what our customers are looking for from their suppliers,” said Wayne Mitchell, Vice President and General Manager, Electronics Division, Air Products.
