Air Liquide Engineering & Construction has secured a contract worth around €100m from Chinese energy firm Yankuang Group to design and build three air separation units (ASUs).

The new ASUs form part of Yankuang’s major technological upgrading programme. Air Liquide said that two units will be delivered to Rongxin site in Inner Mongolia and the third unit will be delivered to Yulin site in Shaanxi province in China.

Each of the ASUs will have a production capacity of 3,200 tonnes per day of oxygen, plus nitrogen for the production of methanol-based chemicals, an additive widely used in the energy industry to increase combustion efficiency of hydrocarbon.

The units will be developed by leveraging Air Liquide’s latest technologies to ensure a safe, optimized and reliable operation of the plants. All three ASUs will be operational in the second half of 2019.

François Venet, member of the Air Liquide group’s executive committee supervising engineering and construction, said: “We are pleased to continue our partnership with Yankuang Group and support their business development.

“This milestone illustrates our expertise in oxygen production technologies notably, with the highest safety and low energy consumption solutions.”
