Linde to Build Two ASUs in India for Tata Steel
The Linde Group will construct two major air separation units (ASUs) at the Kalinganagar industrial complex in Odisha, India, for Tata Steel Ltd. The ASUs are part of a long-term, on-site gases supply contract for a new integrated steelworks that Tata is currently building in Kalinganagar. Each of the two new air separation plants will be capable of producing 1,200 metric tons of air gases per day. Once they go on stream in 2014, the units will supply gaseous oxygen, nitrogen and argon to the steelworks that Tata Steel is currently building. Tata's new blast-furnace-based steel plant will initially produce 3 million metric tons of steel per year.
