Czech Republic: Decarbonisation Messer Eliminates CO2 Emissions with New Nitrogen Production Unit
Messer has launched a new on-site nitrogen unit for Energoaqua in Czech Republic. With this move, the company was able to eliminate CO2 emissions from tank trucks which were earlier used to deliver nitrogen gas to Energoaqua, thus leading Energoaqua to produce its nitrogen independently and with high supply reliability.
Bad Soden/Germany – Messer has started up a nitrogen production unit for Energoaqua in Rožnov pod Radhoštěm, Czech Republic. It benefits the environment by eliminating the need to deliver nitrogen by tank trucks. Energoaqua is a service provider and supplier of electricity, heat and technical gases for companies in various industries in the adjoining industrial park.
For about ten years now, Energoaqua has been operating an on-site nitrogen production unit installed by Messer. During that time, the demand in the industrial park had increased significantly. As a result, Messer has also been supplying liquid nitrogen and other industrial gases to Energoaqua for many years now. With the new on-site production unit, Energoaqua can produce the nitrogen independently and with high supply reliability. It also eliminates the CO2 emissions and traffic noise otherwise generated by the delivery of liquid nitrogen by tank trucks.
“This is a good example of international cooperation and resource utilisation. Our engineering department in Germany designed the unit and sourced the components. Messer in Hungary built the plant components used to condition the compressed air, and our team in the Czech Republic installed the nitrogen unit on the grounds of Energoaqua, including piping and wiring,” remarked Ernst Bode, Member of the Management Board of Messer.
