Linde today said it has started up a new air separation plant in China.
The new plant will supply 720 tonnes-per-day (tpd) of high purity nitrogen to Shanghai EverDisplay Optronics (EDO) supporting its sixth generation AMOLED project.
Under the terms of the contract, Linde will also supply EDO with oxygen, helium, argon and hydrogen.
“We are pleased to have started supplying EverDisplay while expanding our industrial gas capacity and pipeline network in Shanghai and Yangtze River Delta,” said Steven Fang, Head of Linde Greater China.
“These new plants will increase our network density and ability to reliably supply the growing consumer electronics market in China.”
Huiran Liu, General Manager of EDO, said, “EDO is committed to the development of AMOLED display technology and we have great confidence in Linde’s track record of reliable and high-quality industrial gas supply.”
Linde has announced that its subsidiary, Praxair, Inc., has expanded its Skills Pipeline workforce development programme in collaboration with Central Louisiana Technical Community College (CLTCC) in Alexandria and the US Army installation at Fort Polk.
Linde is collaborating with Liebherr-Aerospace Toulouse SAS to optimise the benefits of additive manufacturing (AM) for aluminium aircraft component.
