The Russian-German collaboration will focus on the localisation of world-class, high-tech products in the Eastern Europe country and plans to support its rapidly growing liquefied natural gas (LNG) market.
Initially, the JV will focus on manufacturing coil-wound heat exchangers. Production will take place at Power Machine’s facility in St Petersburg.
The first products of the venture are intended for Gazprom PJSC’s Amur gas processing plant. When completed, Amur it will be one of the largest plants in the world, producing up to 49 billion m3 of natural gas per year.
The companies first initiated cooperation in June when they signed an agreement of intent. The JV is also evaluating the possibility of establishing another natural gas liquefaction and processing equipment production facility in Russia.
The Engineering Division within the Linde Group will be showcasing a new virtual reality (VR) application for the first time at the Gastech 2017 tradeshow in Tokyo.
