When the 10th national games of PRC kicks off, Praxair will be the only industrial gas supplier selected by the organiser to provide 200 cylinders of helium to fill the balloons of the opening ceremony.

The games will be held at the newly completed Nanjing Olympic Sports Centre in China.

Praxair is very proud of its contribution to China’s sports industry. Sheng Zhongke, Nanjing Group General Manager, Praxair China, said:

“Praxair builds on our proven track record of providing reliable and quality helium for large-scale events such as the celebration ceremony for the 50th Anniversary of the PRC in 1999.

“We look forward to filling the helium balloons at the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing with the same capabilities that have contributed to the success of many other events worldwide.”
