PraxAir India Announces Two New On-Site Gas Plants

Mr. B Muthuraman, managing director, Tata Steel, participated in the groundbreaking for the two new plants along with Dr Tridibesh Mukherjee, deputy managing director-steel; Tata Steel, Mr.

Stephen Angel, president and chief operating officer, Praxair, Inc.; Mr. Murray Covello, president, Praxair Asia, Inc. and Mr. John Panikar, managing director, Praxair India.

Praxair was awarded the build-and-operate contract by Tata Steel in May 2006, for the supply of gases to their steel plant. Each state-of-the-art cryogenic air separation plant has a capacity of 875 metric tons per day [MTPD]. In addition to meeting Tata Steel’s oxygen, nitrogen and argon requirements, these plants may also meet the growing demand for liquid gases from customers in eastern and northern India. The plants will be commissioned by early 2008 and will support the 1.8 million metric tons expansion of Tata Steel’s plant.

"We have begun the new project on schedule and are committed to a solid business partnership with Tata Steel for supply of gases to their Jamshedpur complex. This project, coupled with wins at other locations in India, demonstrates our ability to execute world scale projects here, and our commitment to growth in India,” said Steve Angel, Praxair’s president, addressing the gathering at the Tata Steel site. Earlier in the day, Mr B. Muthuraman conducted an inauguration ceremony for Praxair’s first 875 MTPD air separation plant at the Tata Steel site, which was commissioned and has been operating since late last year.

Praxair has executed a number of major Indian projects, among them two 2,500 MTPD cryogenic oxygen plants for Jindal Vijaynagar Steel Ltd. and additional plants for Kalyani Steels, Saint Gobain Glass India and Haldia Petrochemicals. It has also installed innovative non-cryogenic on-site plants for customers such as Usha Martin, Timken, Epcos Ferrites and Sundaram Fasteners. Praxair India was recently awarded a contract to build and operate an on-site industrial gas plant for Durgapur Steel Plant at Durgapur, north of Kolkata.
