Messer Group Gmbh Key Developments

Messer Develops Tech to Cut Grid's Energy Transmission Losses

Messer has developed a cryogenic technology to reduce energy losses from electricity transported on the grid to almost zero. Messer's new cryogenic technology uses liquid nitrogen to cool superconducting cables down to minus 209 degrees Celsius. It vaporises nitrogen at below atmospheric pressure, which allows for minus 209 degrees to be reached. Normally, it is not possible to cool anything to lower than minus 196 degrees using liquid nitrogen. The lower temperature allows electricity to be transported through the grid almost lossless. The technology is currently being tested in a pilot project in the city of Essen in North Rhine-Westphalia state.

Messer to Build EUR 30 Million Plant in Poland for Gas Processing

The production plant for air gases will produce 400 tonnes/day of liquid oxygen and nitrogen, equivalent to the capacity of 20 tankers. The gases produced at the plant will have as end user the pharmaceutical industry, as well as food manufacturing. The start up of the plant will create 15 jobs, it added, while the additional filling plant will create 10 more jobs. The air separation plant is expected to begin operations in the third quarter of 2015, while the filling plant is expected to be commissioned a year later.
