Linde announced that it has signed a long-term agreement with BASF for the supply of hydrogen and steam. Linde will design, build, own and operate a new hydrogen production facility at Chalampé, France, effectively doubling Linde’s current capacity in the Chalampé chemical park where it already has one production facility. This second plant will supply BASF’s new hexamethylenediamine (HMD) manufacturing facility and will also help meet the increasing demand from Linde’s local merchant customers for hydrogen. The plant is expected onstream in H1 of 2024.
Linde is a global leader in the production, processing, storage and distribution of hydrogen. It has the largest hydrogen liquefaction capacity and gaseous hydrogen pipeline distribution system anywhere in the world. The company offers the latest electrolysis technology through its world-class engineering organization, key alliances and partnerships.
