Air Liquide (AL) and BASF recently announced that have signed a contract in South Korea’s Yeosu National Industrial Complex to extend the term of their existing agreements over the long term.
Within this context, AL leveraged the start-up in 2020 of its 4th hydrogen (H2) and carbon monoxide (CO) unit in this major industrial complex to increase by 20% the contractual volumes dedicated to BASF.
AL’s 1st contract with BASF in Yeosu was signed 20 years ago. Since then, AL has significantly developed its industrial footprint in the Yeosu basin, culminating in the construction of a state-of-the-art, highly efficient H2 and CO plant designed and built by AL.
This latest unit, which started up in 2020, is fully integrated with AL’s three other plants through its 40km pipeline supply network in Yeosu to ensure the highest level of safety, reliability, efficiency, and flexibility to its customers.
