Linde recently announced that it has signed an agreement to supply high-purity industrial gases to a leading semiconductor manufacturer in Singapore.
Linde will build, own and operate a state-of-the-art SPECTRA generator to produce ultra-high-purity nitrogen and oxygen for the customer's new multi-billion-dollar semiconductor fabrication plant. The new SPECTRA plant is expected to start up in late 2022.
This agreement is one of over US$ 1 billion of new electronics projects signed by Linde with leading electronics companies in the past year.
"Our track record in delivering on-time large projects has enabled us to capture opportunities which further strengthen our leadership in the electronics end market," said John Panikar, Executive Vice President, Linde.
