Linde to build new ASU in Germany


The Linde Group is set to build a new air separation unit in the eastern German town of Eisenhüttenstadt, near Frankfurt an der Oder.

Around €85m will be channeled into the plant, which will supply the ArcelorMittal Eisenhüttenstadt steelworks with oxygen and nitrogen. The two companies recently signed an agreement to this effect.

The plant will also supply liquid gases to the regional market. By combining both gaseous and liquid production streams, the new plant will significantly increase the energy efficiency of oxygen generation at the integrated steelworks.

“This major on-site project builds on our long-standing and successful partnership with ArcelorMittal,” explains Professor Dr. Aldo Belloni, Member of the Executive Board of Linde AG. “It enables us to synergise the expertise of our Engineering Division with the know-how of our Gases Division, which will be operating the plant once it is completed. It also strengthens our market position as a trusted oxygen supplier to the steel sector.”
