Linde starts up ASU and N2 generator in Taiwan

By Mary Page Bailey |

Linde plc (Guildford, U.K.) announced that it has started up a new air separation unit (ASU) and the first of three nitrogen (N2) generators, as part of a 15-year contract to supply ultra-high purity industrial gases to a major electronics customer in Taiwan.

Built and operated by Linde’s joint venture Linde LienHwa (LLH), the project will support a multi-billion-dollar wafer fab expansion in Tainan Science Park, Taiwan. The remaining two generators are expected to come on stream in 2021. Once completed, the ASU and the three generators will have a total combined gas capacity of over 173,000 Nm3/hr.

“LLH is proud to have reached this significant milestone with our customer, starting the project on time and with the highest safety standards,” said Alex Tong, President of LLH. “This start-up further underscores our track record of delivering on our promises and we look forward to completing the project safely in support of our customer’s growth.”

This latest start-up builds on Linde’s 35-year track record as a safe and reliable provider of industrial gases and gas engineering solutions with a network of world-class plants in Taiwan. Over the past five years, LLH has invested more than $600 million in its production capacities under several long-term commitments with its customers in Taiwan.
