In accordance with this latest agreement, the global industrial gas company will invest around €70m in the project, located on Songmu Island in Dalian, Northeast China.

Sanjiv Lamba, Member of the Executive Board of Linde AG responsible for Asia expressed his delight at the move. He added, “We are delighted to further expand our long term business relationship with our partner Dahua in Dalian. This move strengthens our position as a leading gases and engineering company in the dynamic Chinese market.”

Under the terms of this on-site agreement, Linde acquires the customer’s two existing air separation units (ASUs) in Dalian, and will operate these.
