Industrial Gases Linde Expands Long-Term Agreement with India’s Jindal Stainless
At present, Linde supplies oxygen, nitrogen and argon to Jindal Stainless from its on-site Air Separation Unit at the Kalinganagar Industrial Estate in Odisha, East India. With the expansion announcement, the company will now develop a second air separation unit.
Woking/UK – Linde has expanded its existing long-term agreement for the supply of industrial gases with Jindal Stainless Ltd (JSL), one of the largest stainless-steel producers in India.
Linde already supplies oxygen, nitrogen and argon to JSL from its on-site Air Separation Unit (ASU) at the Kalinganagar Industrial Estate in Odisha, East India. Under the terms of the new agreement, Linde will build a second ASU, more than tripling the current total capacity of its plant at Kalinganagar. The additional supply will support the significant expansion of JSL’s facility. The new ASU is expected to start up in the first half of 2024 and will be an additional supply source for the local merchant market.
“We are proud to develop our partnership with JSL as it embarks on a significant expansion of its stainless-steel production facility at Kalinganagar,” said Moloy Banerjee, President ASEAN & South Asia, Linde. “By building additional capacity to support JSL’s growth, we will increase Linde’s own network density in one of India’s most important industrial regions.”
