Linde and the Dalian Bingshan Group have signed an agreement to establish a new joint venture company to manufacture hydrogen refuelling stations in Dalian, China.

The industrial gas giant today (19th Nov) said the partnership will triple its production capacity for hydrogen refuelling stations in the next few years. 

Supporting the partnership, a new production facility in Dalian has been designed to meet the requirements of the rapidly growing APAC markets.

Commenting on the joint venture, Dr. Alexander Unterschuetz, Senior Vice-President of Components at Linde Engineering, said, “The Asian market has long been one of the pioneers in hydrogen-based mobility solutions.”

“Due to our many years of successful cooperation with our joint venture partner, this is the ideal location for us to expand capacity.”

Linde’s IC90 and Twin IC90 systems will be manufactured in Dalian to help the developments. Based on the Ionic Compressor technology developed by Linde in Vienna, the technology has proved to be energy-efficient and space-saving. 

Linde and the Dalian Bingshan Group have been successfully running a separate joint venture in Dalian since 2005.
