USA: Plant Engineering Linde Signs Agreement to Supply Hydrogen Plant for Praxair
With a production capacity of over 190,000 Nm3/hr of high-purity hydrogen, the new plant is expected to be equipped with the latest technologies and also provide world-class reliability along with energy efficiency.
Munich/Germany – The technology company The Linde Group has recently signed a contract with U.S. industrial gas company, Praxair, to supply a hydrogen plant that will be part of the company's U.S. Gulf Coast hydrogen system which spans Southeast Texas and Western Louisiana.
Linde's Engineering Division is responsible for the design and supply of the equipment for the core components of the hydrogen plant. The order includes the steam-methane reformer; designed and supplied by Linde subsidiary Selas Linde in Blue Bell, Pennsylvania; the pressure swing adsorption unit; and the balance of the core plant.
The plant will have a production capacity of over 190,000 Nm3/hr of high-purity hydrogen and will also generate steam. The new plant will be highly modularised with world-class reliability and energy efficiency. The project is scheduled to come on stream in early 2021.
