New ASU for Norco


Idaho-based Norco Inc., is to construct an air separation plant on a 10-acre site in Colombia, USA.

Norco CEO Jim Kissler made the announcement saying his company, $quot;harvests the sky,$quot; separating air into oxygen, nitrogen and argon. The gases are used to supply Norco’s 30,000 customers throughout the Northwest.

Construction on the Moses Lake plant has not begun, Murray added. Norco hopes to break ground within the next 90 days. The plant is expected to be operational in the first quarter of 2009. It will be similar to Norco’s existing plant in Nampa, Idaho, constructed in 2002.
