Linde starts up new nitrogen plant in Malaysia

By Mary Page Bailey |

Linde plc (Guildford, U.K.) announced that it has completed and started up a new RM 28 million plant in Muar to supply high-purity gaseous nitrogen. The plant has been designed and built to primarily support the increased demand from STMicroelectronics, a leading global semiconductor manufacturer, which has a back-end (test and packaging) plant in Muar, Malaysia.

Built with state-of-the-art technology, the ECOGAN5 is a highly energy efficient, cost-effective and reliable plant that delivers a continuous stream of gaseous nitrogen.

Binod Patwari, President ASEAN, Linde, said, “Linde has long-standing associations with STMicroelectronics for over 30 years, and I am proud to see our cooperation grow from strength to strength with this latest start-up. This investment is a testament of our commitment towards not only the electronics industry in Malaysia, but also the country’s overall economic growth.”

Since 1960, Linde has invested in building numerous facilities in Malaysia, including Air Separation Units in Pengerang and Shah Alam, large-capacity nitrogen plants in Pasir Gudang, pipeline networks for oxygen and nitrogen in Pasir Gudang, and a state-of-art cylinder filling facility in Banting. Linde also established its Remote Operating Centre (ROC) in Hicom, which allows for the remote monitoring, operation and control of more than 100 Linde plants across the ASEAN, South Asia and South Pacific regions.
