LINDE has entered into an agreement with BASF for the supply of hydrogen to a BASF manufacturing facility.
Under the agreement, Linde will design, build, and operate a new hydrogen production facility at the Chalampé chemical park in France. The plant will supply BASF’s new hexamethylenediamine (HMD) manufacturing facility.
Veerle Slenders, President Region Europe West at Linde, said: "Hydrogen plays a key role in the manufacturing of essential chemicals for industry. Linde’s hydrogen production technology, developed over several decades, ensures we can safely and reliably supply our customers and support their operations. We look forward to supporting BASF as it grows its manufacturing capacity in France."
The facility will be Linde’s second in the chemical park. It will also help to meet demand for Linde’s local merchant customers. The facility is expected to be operational in 2024.
