Italy’s SIAD Macchine Impianti (SIAD MI) will build an air separation unit (ASU) for a large steel plant in Russia.

The Bergamo-based business said it will supply the ASU for the production of oxygen, nitrogen and argon, with a capacity of up to 18,000Nm3/h of oxygen.

SIAD MI is also collaborating with what it described as a “prestigious international EPC contractor” on another project in Russia, which will see the company supply two nitrogen generation units for the production of ammonia and urea-based fertilisers.

Each unit will be able to produce up to 900Nm3/h of nitrogen, SIAD MI confirmed.
