Messer has recently started-up a new air separation unit (ASU) in Vratimov, Czech Republic which replaces the existing ASU of MG Odra Gas. With the new project, Messer aims to make its industrial gases production operations eco-friendlier and more economical.
Bad Soden/Germany – Messer has started up a new air separation unit (ASU) in Vratimov, Czech Republic. It replaces the existing ASU of MG Odra Gas, which was modernized in 1993. MG Odra Gas is a joint venture of Messer and Liberty Ostrava, 70 percent of which is held by Messer.
“The improved specific energy consumption of the new unit now makes our industrial gases production operations more eco-friendly and more economical. At the same time, this investment enables us to increase our liquefied gas production capacity by about a factor of four and that increases supply reliability for our bulk customers,” explains Virginia Esly, Chief Operating Officer and Member of the Management Board of Messer.

One of the largest customers for the gases is the steelworks Liberty Ostrava. The steelmaker and other major industrial companies in the region receive gaseous nitrogen, oxygen and argon via a pipeline. The remaining product quantities are filled into gas cylinders and in liquid form into tank trucks. “The cylinder and bulk gases are distributed via the Czech subsidiary Messer Technogas,” says René Hrnčárek, Managing Director of MG Odra Gas.
Industrial gases serve as trailblazers for optimization. In industrial production, they are just as important as electricity and water. They are used in nearly all sectors, including the steel industry, electronics, the food and beverage industry, healthcare, and environmental protection as well as in welding and cutting. Their specific properties and the way they are used make many processes run more efficiently, safer, eco-friendlier and more profitably.
