SHANGHAI, CHINA: Capitalizing on the growth of the display industry in China, the Linde Gases Division, part of Linde Group, has become a major supplier of bulk and electronics specialty gases to China’s flat panel display industry.

Linde LienHwa and Linde GISE have been awarded major bulk gas supply contracts by the three largest display manufacturers in China - Samsung Electronics, BOE and ChinaStar Optoelectronics Technology (CSOT) - for their Gen 8.5 facilities to increase the cost effectiveness and environmental efficiency of their display manufacturing process. The total investment in on-site gas generation plants and related equipment for the three projects is in the range of €100 million.

To support innovation in the display sector, Linde also established two new high-purity nitrous oxide (N2O) gas facilities in Taiwan and Korea and newly acquired a third plant in China.

“These significant wins not only strengthen our industry references in China, but also demonstrate our continuous commitment to our customers with the state of the art manufacturing solutions,” said Andrew Lau, President and General Manager of LLH China.

Linde LienHwa (LLH) will supply gases to Samsung Electronics for its latest 8.5 generation display manufacturing plant in Suzhou Industrial Park (SIP). LLH will provide Samsung Electronics with a turnkey installation of the TFT-LCD plant’s bulk gases supply systems, with a gas-on-line date of the end of 2013. Overall investment for the project is around RMB 500 million (€50 million), doubling LLH’s capacity in SIP.

Also, LLH has opened a major ultra-high purity gas plant at BOE Technology Group Co Ltd’s latest 8.5 Gen Display manufacturing facility. Linde-GISE, has made a significant investment of RMB 200 million (€22 million) to construct an on-site gases supply facility in CSOT’s Gen 8.5 display fab in Guangming High Technology Park in Shenzhen.
