BOC opens $75m in­dus­trial gas plant

DEMM Engineering & Manufacturing - - NEWS -

Gases and en­gi­neer­ing com­pany BOC has of­fi­cially opened its state-of-the-art new gas plant in Glen­brook, se­cur­ing a highly en­ergy-ef­fi­cient sup­ply of gasses for New Zealand's in­dus­trial and med­i­cal sec­tors.

The in­vest­ment in the Air Sep­a­ra­tion Unit (ASU) is un­der­pinned by a long term in­dus­trial gas sup­ply con­tract with New Zealand Steel that will be crit­i­cal to the com­pany's on­go­ing iron and steel mak­ing op­er­a­tions.

With an in­vest­ment of ap­prox­i­mately $75m in the plant and equip­ment by BOC, the project re­places its fa­cil­ity at the site, which had reached the end of its use­ful life.

Fea­tur­ing in­creased pro­duc­tion and stor­age ca­pac­ity, the plant en­hances re­li­a­bil­ity of sup­ply and po­ten­tial growth for New Zealand Steel.
