Linde has announced it has signed an engineering and procurement contract for two hydrogen plants in Nizhnekamsk, Republic of Tatarstan, Russia – worth €120m.
“We are delighted to have the opportunity to cooperate with PSC TAIF-NK and bring in our in-depth expertise in hydrogen technology,” said Professor Dr Aldo Belloni, Member of the Executive Board of Linde AG.
“We are confident that this agreement will lead to further key contracts for our gases and engineering business in this important Eastern European growth market.”
Linde will be responsible for basic and detail engineering, procurement and supply of equipment and materials.
The two new hydrogen plants, each with a capacity of around 110,000 normal cubic metres per hour (Nm3/h), will supply high purity hydrogen to the heavy residue conversion complex at the Nizhnekamsk refinery site. The new hydrogen plants are planned to be delivered by the end of 2015.
PSC TAIF-NK operates the largest refinery in Tatarstan, including a gasoline plant and gas condensate processing plant.
