Air Liquide Engineering & Construction has signed an agreement with Doosan Heavy Industries to support the construction of a liquid hydrogen plant in Changwon, South Korea.

To be built within the grounds of Doosan’s site in the city, once complete, the plant will be able to produce five tonnes of liquid hydrogen per day to service hydrogen stations nationwide.

In a statement released today (14th Dec), Air Liquide said it will provide the engineering and procurement of the hydrogen liquefier.

David Maloney, Vice-President and Chairman of Air Liquide Engineering & Construction commented, “We are proud to partner with Dooosan and contribute to the development of the liquid hydrogen plant in South Korea to support the country’s transition to a low-carbon economy.”

“Drawing on our more than 50 years of experience in hydrogen, we provide our customers with state-of-the-art technologies and solutions that enable delivery of such important projects to contribute to the development of clean mobility and a more sustainable future.”

The first industrial hydrogen production is envisaged in early 2023.
