Praxair has signed a long-term agreement to supply industrial gases to Samsung Electro-Mechanics (SEM), one of the world’s largest multi-layer ceramic capacitors (MLCC) manufacturers.
Praxair has been supplying nitrogen (N2) to SEM’s manufacturing facility in the Noksan Industrial Complex in Busan since 2001. The new air separation plant, which will be built, owned and operated by Praxair, will supply an additional 425 tonnes per day of N2 to support SEM’s world-class MLCC manufacturing expansion.
B.S. Sung, President of Praxair Korea, said, “Praxair has been reliably supplying Samsung’s facility in Noksan for over 17 years. We are proud to strengthen this longstanding relationship with SEM and look forward to supporting their ongoing growth and expansion.”
The new plant will start up in 2019, further increasing Praxair’s density in the southeast region of South Korea.
Air Products is to build several large air separation units (ASUs), hydrogen (H2) and compressed dry air plants and a bulk specialty gas supply yard in Western China as part of a contract with Samsung Electronics’.
