Linde to Invest $2 Million in New West Java Gas Plant
MARCH 03, 2021
Jakarta. Industrial gases supplier Linde will invest $2 million to build a new plant in Bogor, West Java, the company said on Wednesday.
The plant will supply high purity gaseous nitrogen to its main Indonesian customer, truck and bus tire producer Elangperdana Tyre Industry, with whom Linde has recently reached a 15-year gas supply deal.
The statement says the new, cost-effective plant is expected to begin operations in early 2022.
“Linde is a longstanding partner of Elangperdana Tyre Industry for over a decade, and I am proud to see our partnership growing for many years to come,” said Marcus Tan, the president director of Linde’s Indonesian arm.
The new plant will be integrated into Remote Operating Centre (ROC), which monitors, operates and controls systems and equipment of Linde's 108 plants across Asia-Pacific region.
According to the company website, Linde Group recorded $27 billion worth of global sales last year.
Linde's industrial gases are used in various applications, from life-saving oxygen for hospitals to high-purity gases for electronics manufacturing.
It also offers gas processing solutions to support customer expansion, efficiency improvements and emission reductions.
The local branch, Linde Indonesia, was established in 1971 and has since manufactured and distributed industrial and medical gases across Indonesia.
