Messer has concluded a long-term supply agreement for liquid helium with the Russian company Cryor.

This agreement, in respect of which the European Commission had to give its consent, gives the owner-managed industrial gas company direct access to one of the most reliable helium sources in the world.

Messer transports helium in its own vacuum super insulated tankers from Orenburg to filling plants in France, Austria and Switzerland. Europe’s largest helium tank farm, with a capacity of 113,000 litres – equivalent to the filling of one billion balloons -, is located at the
