Linde announced today it has started up its new on-site facility in Qinzhou, China, supplying oxygen and other industrial gases to Shanghai Huayi's new chemical complex.
The new facility is comprised of three air separation units which will supply up to 7,500 tons per day of oxygen and 5,000 tons per day of nitrogen. Linde's advanced technology and operational expertise will ensure the safe and reliable supply to Shanghai Huayi through Linde's pipeline at the new chemical complex. By supplying the various Shanghai Huayi companies from one central facility, Linde will operate more efficiently, lowering its energy consumption and carbon emissions. The total investment for this new facility was approximately $200M.
"The start-up of our Qinzhou facility is a significant milestone in our long-standing relationship with Shanghai Huayi and we are proud to support its continued growth," said Will Li, Head of Greater China, Linde. "With the new project on stream, we look forward to opening new avenues of cooperation between Linde and Shanghai Huayi as we continue to increase our network density in China."
