MUNICH, GERMANY: The Linde Group has been selected to supply air gases to chemicals producer Dahua Group on Songmu Island in Dalian, China. Linde will invest around €70 million in the project. Linde acquires the customer’s two existing air separation units (ASU) in Dalian, and will operate these. In addition, Linde’s Engineering Division will build a new ASU on site with a production capacity of 38,000 cubic metre of oxygen per hour. Scheduled to go on stream in 2014.

The new ASU will replace the two older plants, also meet the rising demand for gaseous oxygen at Dahua’s operations. The new ASU will also produce surplus liquid gases for the regional market. The upgraded gas production facility will be managed by a 50:50 joint venture between Linde and Dahua. Linde-Dahua Gases Company Ltd will offer industrial gaseous and liquid products and provide relevant engineering services to the neighbouring industrial hubs. “This move strengthens our position as a leading gases and engineering company in the dynamic Chinese market,” said Sanjiv Lamba, Executive Board Member, responsible for Asian business, Linde AG.
