PanGas to build a new air separation plant

By Gerald Ondrey |

The Linde Group (Munich, Germany; www.linde.com), via its Swiss subsidiary PanGas AG (Dagmersellen, Switzerland; www.pangas.ch), is to build a new air separation plant in Muttenz, in the Swiss canton of Basel-Land, for around 68 million Swiss francs (44 million euros). The new plant, which will have a capacity of over 500 tons of liquefied nitrogen, oxygen and argon per day will come on stream in the late autumn of 2010. “This new air separation plant will enable us to increase security of supply, especially for chemical and pharmaceutical companies sited at the point where the borders of Switzerland, Germany and France meet (known as the Dreiländereck Basel). What’s more, Linde’s capital investment underlines our commitment to this location and to our customers in the region,” says Aldo Belloni, member of the executive board of Linde AG. The new plant will be the largest and most modern in the region. Its liquid products will also be transported in an environmentally friendly way, by rail. In addition to the new production plant, Linde will be building an extension to the offices of the Basel Advisory Center.
