Linde has announced it has started up its fifth liquid hydrogen plant in the US, reinforcing the company's robust supply network of plants in California, Alabama, Indiana and New York.
The new plant in La Porte, Texas, will supply over 30 tpd of high-purity liquid hydrogen to meet growing demand from Linde's customers. The liquefier takes hydrogen from Linde's approximately 600 km US Gulf Coast pipeline, which has over 15 independent hydrogen production sources, giving it a reliable feed supply. Linde will purify and liquefy the hydrogen before supplying it to end markets including material handling, mobility, aerospace, manufacturing, metals, energy and electronics.
"The new hydrogen plant started up on time and on budget, which is a testament to the dedication of the team executing this project over the last two years," said Jeff Barnhard, Vice President South Region, Linde. "This plant will not only boost the reliability of our existing network but will also make the supply chain more efficient and increase our ability to serve the rising demand from existing and new customers, for both conventional and clean hydrogen."
