Long-Term Agreement with BASF Linde to Develop New Hydrogen Production Unit in France
Under a long-term agreement signed between Linde and BASF, Linde will build and operate a new hydrogen production facility at Chalampé, France in order to supply hydrogen and steam to BASF’s new hexamethylenediamine manufacturing facility in the country.
Guildford/UK – Linde has signed a long-term agreement with BASF for the supply of hydrogen and steam. Linde will design, build, own and operate a new hydrogen production facility at Chalampé, France, effectively doubling Linde's current capacity in the Chalampé chemical park where it already has one production facility.
This second plant will supply BASF's new hexamethylenediamine (HMD) manufacturing facility and will also help meet the increasing demand from Linde's local merchant customers for hydrogen. The plant is expected onstream in the first half of 2024.
"Hydrogen plays a key role in the manufacturing of essential chemicals for the industry," said Veerle Slenders, President Region Europe West, Linde."
