Province of Shanxi/PR China, Munich/Germany – The contract places a total investment figure of around € 100 million on the project. The project will be managed by BOC-Tisco Gases, the 50/50 gases joint venture set up by the two companies. Linde’s Engineering Division will construct the new ASUs. With a capacity of 60,000 Nm3/h of gaseous oxygen per plant, they rank among the largest and most modern ASUs in China. Over the coming years, the new units will double oxygen capacity from around 110,000 Nm3/h today to a new total of 220,000 Nm3/h. Linde will also be delivering various oxyfuel-enabled gas applications for different furnace processes. With oxyfuel, combustion air in the furnace is replaced with oxygen-enriched air or pure oxygen. This increases furnace throughput.
