Munich, 4 January 2013 – The technology company The Linde Group has signed a contract with Sichuan Tongkai Energy and Technology Development Company for the design and supply of the Bazhong Phase II LNG plant. After winning back the customer against strong competition, this is now the fourth LNG project for the Linde Engineering Division in China.
Located in the Bazhong Economic Development Zone in Sichuan, the Bazhong phase II LNG project is expected to process 1.3 million cubic metres (Nm³) of feed gas per day, equivalent to an annual production of 300,000 tons of LNG. The plant will feature Linde’s patented LiMuM™ process that is able to accommodate different feed gas compositions and has proven its stability and reliability in various projects conducted by Linde.
According to Zhan Jiafang, General Manager of Linde Engineering Hangzhou, "The Bazhong project is the first where Linde Engineering China's LNG team is fully involved in project execution, showing Linde Engineering's determination to develop the LNG market as well as our confidence in the clean energy industry in China."
As a hi-tech company specialised in the clean energy business, Sichuan Tongkai Energy and Technology Development Co. Ltd. is the company that attracted the largest investments in Bazhong City so far.
