Praxair to supply EverDisplay Optronics


Praxair Inc. has signed another long-term contract with an electronics manufacturer in Shanghai, China.

Praxair will build, own and operate multiple air separation plants that will supply high-purity nitrogen (N2) and oxygen (O2) to EverDisplay Optronics (EDO), the first mass producer of 4.5-generation AMOLED displays in the country. Under the terms of the contract, Praxair will also supply EDO with helium (He) and other gases.

Praxair’s plants will provide a combined 720 tonnes per day of N2 to EDO’s new 6th-generation AMOLED project in Shanghai. The N2 will be used in EDO’s manufacturing processes. The bulk gas supply is scheduled to begin in mid-2018, followed by additional supply from the air separation plants, which are expected to start up in 2019.

EDO will invest more than $4.1bn in its new project, which is the only AMOLED project supported by the Shanghai government and one of the focal projects in China’s 13th five-year plan.
