Messer Group commissions nitrogen plant in Hungary

| By Mary Bailey

Messer Group GmbH (Bad Soden, Germany) has built a nitrogen production plant on the premises of the Harman Becker Automotive System Manufacturer in Székesfehérvár, Hungary. The energy-efficient and remote-controlled plant will meet the nitrogen demand of the audio and infotainment manufacturer.

At the site of the electronics giant Harman, Messer has commissioned a nitrogen generator with the latest technology that improves energy efficiency and controls the separation of nitrogen from the ambient air more effectively, making operation more economical. The high-purity nitrogen is generated directly on-site for the manufacturing of electronic products, replacing the previous deliveries by road and thus contributing to decarbonization. The specific electricity consumption per cubic meter of gas supply will be reduced to one third compared to the previous nitrogen supply.

Harman, a subsidiary of Samsung, is present in the automotive industry as well as in the world of sound and studio technology. It owns several renowned brands such as JBL, AKG, Harman Kardon, dbx, Lexicon and Martin. In Székesfehérvár, Hungary, it manufactures electronic and acoustic products for the automotive industry. They produce amplifiers, navigation systems, and other electronic devices for the most demanding car brands. They do this with the most modern production technologies of the 21st century and the highest quality standards.

The operation of on-site production plants for industrial gases is a dynamically developing strategic business area for Messer supporting our customer’s decarbonization efforts across various industries.
