Air Liquide: Two new ASUs for Korean steelmaker  

By Gerald Ondrey |

Air Liquide (Paris, France; www.airliquide.com) has signed a contract with Posco E&C, the Engineering and Construction division of Posco, to design and build two very large air separation units (ASUs), each of which will have an oxygen production capacity of 3,750 metric tons per day. This is the largest production capacity designed so far for a steelmaker by Air Liquide. Oxygen is used to transform cast iron into steel. These two new units will be installed at Posco’s Gwangyang and Pohang sites in South Korea. The oxygen they produce will enable the Gwangyang site to support the Posco Group’s increase in global steel production. The second unit will meet growing demand for oxygen in connection with the construction of a second steel plant — with a production capacity of 2 million ton/yr — on the Pohang site. Posco is the largest integrated steel producer in the country and one of the most important in the world. Founded in 1968 and privatized in 2000, Posco has led the Korean steel industry for more than four decades. In 2010, Posco produced 33.7 million tons of crude steel.
