Messer Group Gmbh Key Developments
Messer Starts Up an Electronic Specialty Gases Plant in Suzhou of Jiangsu Province
Aug 26 15
Messer announced it has recently started up an electronic specialty gases plant in Suzhou of Jiangsu Province. The new plant, which represents a significant investment of approximately $36 million, will become Messer's production and logistics center in China to serve the electronics industries including flat panel display, semiconductor, LED and photovoltaic sectors. The new specialty gases plant is equipped with production and purification systems as well as an additional filling station. The facility has an annual production capacity of 600 tones of nitrous oxide with a purity of 99.9995% along with other high-purity gases for electronic applications, such as silane (SiH4), ammonia (NH3) and hydrogen, as well as various gas mixtures. Messer had already set up an own specialty gases plant in Wujiang, near Suzhou, back in 1998. The new facility is an important milestone and strengthens Messer's position as a leading specialty gases supplier in the Chinese market. Above all, however, the investment will allow the company to meet increased customer demand.
Messer Develops Tech to Cut Grid's Energy Transmission Losses
Apr 14 15
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
Aug 6 14
Messer is to build a production plant in Poland for air gases and an additional filling plant for technical gases in cylinders, investing EUR 30 million and EUR 3 million respectively. 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.
