Linde to expand industrial gases plant in US; invests $100 mn

BRIDGEWATER, US: Linde LLC a member of The Linde Group said that it will spend over $100 million to increase the production of its industrial gases plant in Claymont, Delaware (US). The expansion project includes installing a new air separation unit (ASU) which will produce gaseous products to serve Linde customers along the Delaware River via pipeline and liquid oxygen, nitrogen and argon for customers in the Delaware Valley.

When completed in 2019, the plant will become Linde's largest liquid merchant plant in the US. It will produce 1200 tonnes per day of liquid oxygen, nitrogen and argon, as well as 400 tonnes per day of gaseous products, serving customers across the Delaware Valley and beyond.

The new plant will be extremely energy efficient, incorporating state-of-the-art design technology from Linde Engineering, the global leader in ASU construction, consuming the least amount of energy while maximizing production capability.

"This new plant represents Linde's continued commitment to investment in the Americas to meet demand for our essential products and services. With our unique portfolio, Linde remains confident in our capabilities to meet customer needs -- today and in the future," said Pat Murphy, president of Linde Americas.

"Linde has a long history in the Delaware Valley, serving customers in the food, metals, glass, chemical, healthcare, energy and manufacturing industries. We are very familiar with our customers' operations, and we remain committed to meeting their future needs. Our new ASU will fill regional demand while substantially reducing our energy usage and our overall carbon footprint. It will be a win-win for our customers and for the environment," added Murphy.
