Praxair extends pipeline system in the Port of Antwerp

DANBURY, US/SCHOTEN, BELGIUM: Praxair Inc is extending its pipeline system in the Port of Antwerp, and will build second air separation plant with capacity of 1,300 tonne per day. The plant will increase Praxair’s oxygen and nitrogen capacity in the port and expand its business with customers under long-term contracts, including agreements with several leading global companies. The air separation plant is expected to start operations in early 2016.

The new plant and extensive pipeline system will supply oxygen and nitrogen to the majority of chemical companies in the port. The new facility is also designed to produce liquid oxygen, nitrogen and argon to support customers in the pharmaceutical, chemical, glass, cement, metal fabrication and food industries in Belgium and the Netherlands.

“The increase of installed capacity, as well as an expansion of Praxair’s pipeline network in the Port of Antwerp, gives us the reach and production to supply the increasing oxygen and nitrogen demand of customers throughout the port. Integrated ports such as Antwerp have remained competitive, in spite of the extended recessionary period in Europe, and we fully expect the port to continue to grow and attract significant new investment in the future,” said Todd Skare, President, Praxair Europe.
