New Joint Venture One Step Closer To Delivering One of Middle East's First Over-The-Fence Gas Supplies

Air Products is to ship a cold box, key equipment for an air separation unit (ASU), to reach the port of Abu Dhabi at the end of February 2008.

This shipment is the main stage of a project by the joint venture between the Abdullah Hashim Group (AHG) and Air Products to build, operate and maintain a new ASU and a hydrogen production facility for Emirates Float Glass Company (EFG) in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. The new plant will be the first over-the-fence gas supply in the Industrial City of Abu Dhabi, and one of the first in the Middle East.

The newly set-up UAE joint venture between Air Products and Abdullah Hashim Group combines Air Products' technology and the regional know-how and experience of the Abdullah Hashim Group, and will deliver projects following Air Products' globally recognized standards for operation and maintenance.

The cold box is the core element of an ASU and enables the air to be cooled so that it can be separated into different gases. The cold box and other cryogenic equipment are being manufactured at Air Products' facility in Acrefair, North Wales, UK.

"We are very excited to bring this project one step closer," explains Richard Boocock, vice president, Tonnage Gases, Equipment & Energy, Air Products Europe & Middle East. "We bring extensive worldwide experience in designing, constructing and operating ASUs, and will provide globally proven in-house nitrogen cryogenic distillation technology. Our partner, AHG, has unrivalled Middle East project management expertise and extensive liquid gases back-up capabilities in the gulf region."

"Our joint venture enables us to offer the highest standards of nitrogen and hydrogen supply safety, reliability, product purity and power efficiency," adds Khalid Hashim, managing director of AHG.

Air Products has operated a helium and cylinder gases filling and distribution facility in the Jebel Ali Free Zone in UAE since 1990, and strengthened its presence in the Middle East with the opening of its office in Doha, Qatar last year.
