The Linde Group has been awarded a contract from Chinese chemical and energy company Inner Mongolia Huineng Coal Chemical Co to supply a mid-scale LNG plant near Beinichuan in Inner Mongolia.

This will be Linde’s seventh and largest LNG plant to date in China and is in response to growing demand from customers in China.

Linde’s Engineering Division will be responsible for engineering, procurement and site services for the LNG plant with a nameplate capacity of 750,000 tonnes of LNG per annum.

The plant’s technology is based on Linde’s proprietary LIMUM(R) process, a multi-stage mixed refrigerant process that provides best-in-class energy efficiency, and proprietary core cryogenic heat exchangers.

Linde Engineering has world-class experience across the entire natural gas processing chain, including proprietary process technology, manufacturing specialised, tailor-made cryogenic equipment and the delivery of turn-key plants.
