Air Liquide and Evraz, a world major steel producer, have signed a long-term contract for the supply of oxygen, nitrogen and argon in Novokuznetsk, Russian Federation. Air Liquide will invest around 130 million euros for the construction of two state-of-the-art Air Separation Units (ASUs). These plants will improve energy efficiency and the overall environmental footprint of the production process.

Oxygen, nitrogen and argon are needed for many applications in the steel industry, ranging from the air enrichment of blast furnaces to oxygen-based steel production processes. Argon in particular is used in the production of high quality steel.

Air Liquide will design, build, own and operate two new ASUs of 1,500 ton per day of oxygen each at Evraz ZSMK site in Novokuznetsk. Air Liquide will bring to Evraz its world class expertise in industrial gas supply. The Air Liquide Engineering and Construction teams will bring their state-of-the-art technologies for these two large ASUs, thereby providing improved efficiencies, reliability and safety.

Expected to start operation in 2021, these new ASUs will offer Air Liquide a new source of oxygen, nitrogen and argon to supply the industrial gas market in Kemerovo Region, Western Siberia.

During the signing ceremony which took place today at 2018 Saint Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEF):
Olivier Randet, Air Liquide Vice-President supervising Eastern Europe and Central Asia, said: “We are delighted to sign this long-term contract with Evraz for one of their main production sites. With this new contract, Air Liquide enlarges its footprint in Siberia. We are committed to making this project a success that will further strengthen our leadership in the region. "

Alexey Soldatenkov, Vice-President Head of the Siberia Division, Evraz, commented: "EVRAZ ZSMK continues its program of renovation and modernization, choosing the best technical solutions. I am confident that partnership with Air Liquide, the world leader in the production of gases, is the optimal choice that will improve the efficiency of our production and generally the competitiveness of the plant."
