The technology company The Linde Group has signed a contract with US industrial gas company, Praxair Inc., to supply a hydrogen plant.
The new plant will be part of Praxair's hydrogen system in Louisiana.
"We are very pleased with this second major order from Praxair to supply a large hydrogen plant within a few months," said Dr Christian Bruch, Member of the Executive Board of Linde AG and responsible for the company's plant engineering business. “Our well-founded and customer-oriented engineering solutions are the basis of this success.”
Linde's Engineering Division is responsible for the design and supply of the equipment for the core components of the hydrogen plant. The order includes the steam-methane reformer, designed and supplied by Linde subsidiary Selas Linde in Blue Bell, Pennsylvania, the pressure swing adsorption unit, and the balance of the core plant. The plant will have a production capacity of over 190,000 Nm3/hr of high-purity hydrogen and will also generate steam. The new plant will be highly modularized with world-class reliability and energy efficiency and is scheduled to come on stream in 2021.
