Linde, Samsung Electronics to supply gases for TFT-LCD plant in China

MUNICH, GERMANY: Linde LienHwa (LLH), The Linde Group’s joint venture with LienHwa MiTAC Group of Taiwan, announced a significant long-term deal with Samsung Electronics to supply gases for its latest 8.5 generation thin-film transistors TFT-LCD manufacturing plant in Suzhou Industrial Park (SIP), China. Industrial gases are essential to the production of transistors that control the pixels in LCD screens. Very large volumes of ultra-high purity gases play a critical part in the manufacture of TFT-LCD screens. They are used to create the microscopic TFT required to control each of the thousands of pixels that make up the visible image.

Linde LienHwa’s extensive scope includes the construction of a new on-site SPECTRA-N 30,000 series nitrogen generator supplying gas to Samsung via an underground pipeline. Overall investment is in the region of €50 million. This will double Linde LienHwa's capacity in Suzhou Industrial Park, and demonstrates the significant growth potential of this market.

“This new project significantly strengthens our industry references and reinforces our leading role in the TFT-LCD industry. The agreement with Samsung Electronics demonstrates our commitment to help our customers develop state of the art manufacturing solutions. It also shows we are confident about the growth of the electronics market in Asia,” said Andrew Lau, President and General Manager, Linde LienHwa China.
