From the industrial gas companies, Taiyo Nippon Sanso will be chosen as a specialty gas, nitrogen and helium supplier. Iwatani International will supply liquid hydrogen. Air Water and Daido Air Products will also supply the plant.

For the gas supply, TNS and Air Water will establish a joint venture company for production of nitrogen, oxygen and CDA.

The ground breaking ceremony for the new plant was expected to be held in December and the construction will then be in full swing.
