Air Liquide : Strengthens Its Presence in Poland With a New Long-Term Contract With KGHM

10/13/2020 | 02:46am EST

Regulatory News:

Air Liquide (Paris:AI) and KGHM Polska Miedź, one of the largest producers of copper and silver in the world, have signed a new long-term contract for the supply of oxygen and nitrogen at the Głogów site in Poland. Air Liquide will invest around 40 million euros in the construction of a state-of-the-art Air Separation Unit (ASU) which offers high levels of energy efficiency and reliability. In addition, the extended liquid argon production will support growth of the Industrial Merchant business in Poland.

This new investment will add a capacity of more than 1,200 tons of oxygen per day on the Głogów site, which will bring Air Liquide total oxygen production capacity on this location to close to 2,800 tons per day. Together with the liquid argon production capacity it already has on the site today, the new production facility will strengthen Air Liquide’s position in Poland, increase its competitiveness and support the growth momentum of the Group’s Large Industries and Industrial Merchant activities in the region.

The Air Separation Unit will be designed and manufactured by Air Liquide Engineering & Construction and will incorporate the Group’s latest technologies, which offer the highest levels of energy efficiency and reliability. In line with Air Liquide's Climate Objectives, and KGHM sustainable development goals, both parties will further explore opportunities to lower the carbon footprint of the site in the future.

François Jackow, Executive Vice President and a member of the Air Liquide Group’s Executive Committee said: "We are pleased to strengthen our collaboration with our customer KGHM. With this new project, Air Liquide reinforces its presence in the dynamic market of Poland. This investment is in line with our development strategy underpinned by growth of our Large Industries business in major industrial sites and by the strength of our integrated model that enables expansion of the Industrial Merchant activity."
