Cryostar has been awarded a contract by The Linde Group’s Gases Division to equip the biggest filling plant in Germany, in Unterschleissheim, a site that aims to become a European platform dedicated to medical and industrial gas supply.
The company will provide a fully automated turnkey filling station – including all the equipment from the piston pumps through to the cylinder’s valves connections – as well as the associated solutions and technologies, interfaces and automation.
Cryostar will also provide the complete engineering and commissioning for those deliveries.
All of which will, in the second quarter of 2017, result in a filling station that will have the capacity to fill more than 750,000 cylinders per year. The plant will continue to operate during its expansion and will feature ‘outstanding technical challenges’ with a modular and standardised installation compliant with GAMP 5 guidelines and food safety standards.
The plant will integrate scalable modules with ‘plug and play’ capability, Cryostar added.
Since the acquisition of Elintec in 2001, Cryostar has celebrated more than 100 automated filling station successes, with its landmark 100th station celebrated at the beginning of this year (2016).
The new LNG station from Air Liquide began operating in Nancy in April 2016, with Cryostar providing a complete package of equipment for the station.
SKF has secured a contract with Cryostar, a French manufacturer of turbo-expanders, to supply SKF S2M magnetic bearings and the latest generation E300V2 control cabinet.
