Linde to build major plant complex for Reliance in India
The Linde Group (Munich, Germany; www.linde.com) has been awarded a major contract by Reliance Industries Ltd. (RIL) to build several plants to generate and purify gases in Jamnagar, India. Part of the Reliance Group, India’s largest private enterprise, RIL specializes in the energy and petrochemicals industries.
Under the new deal, Linde’s Engineering Division will supply four large air separation units (ASUs) for the production of gaseous oxygen. RIL needs massive streams of oxygen for its proposed petroleum-coke- and coal-gasification facilities. To treat the synthesis gas generated during this gasification process, Linde will also deliver two Redtisol acid-gas removal units. Linde will be supplying the license, process design, detail engineering and procurement services for this project.
In addition, Linde will build two additional ASUs to supply high-purity oxygen to RIL’s ethylene glycol facilities in Jamnagar.
