自2013年起，林德韩国一直是 HHI 的一氧化二氮产品供应商。不过，在过去4年里，为 HHI供应液氮的一直是 Air Products 公司。
签订新合同后，林德韩国将从今年2月底起，向 HHI 供应大约总计8,000吨液氮。按照目前的供应增长情况推测，预计HHI在2016年的液氮消耗量将达到9500吨左右。鉴于一氧化二氮和氨气特气销售的大幅增长，消耗量预计也将增加。
林德韩国的 ESG 销售主管 Kevin Choi 表示，“这次中标将提高林德韩国市场上的声望，有利于我们建立直接客户群。此次中标意义重大，因为它巩固了林德韩国作为现代重工战略合作伙伴的地位，为林德韩国奠定了坚实的业务基础。”
– Linde Korea signs contract with Hyundai Heavy Industries Co., Ltd.
In January 2016, Linde Korea won the bidding for a 1-year contract with Green Energy Division of Hyundai Heavy Industries Co., Ltd (hereafter HHI) to supply liquid nitrogen, ammonia and N2O gases for 2016.
Since 2013, Linde Korea has been supplying N20 products to HHI. However, for liquid nitrogen, Air Products have been supplying for the past 4 years.
During the initial stage of the bidding, Air Products was considered as a gas supplier candidate after the accumulated reliability through 4 years of stable supply history. However, being recognized as a company with reliable nitrogen production capacity, strong safety culture and cost-effective supply prices, Linde Korea beat the competition and won the contract.
With the new contract, Linde Korea will supply approx. 8,000 Ton of liquid nitrogen to HHI starting from the end of this February, based on current increment of HHI expecting an annual consumption volume of about 9,500 Ton of liquid nitrogen in 2016. Adding up to a substantial increase in sales of N20 and NH3 specialty gases, the consumption amount is expected to be more.
The supplied liquid nitrogen will be used as a carrier and purge gas for solar cell manufacturing process. For the case of NH3 and N20, these specialty gases will be used for the SiNx layer growth and for increasing solar cell efficiency.
Kevin Choi, ESG Sales Executive of Linde Korea said, “I hope that being selected as a supplier from this bidding, Linde Korea will establish a higher reputation in the market and build our direct customer base. This winning had a great significance, as it laid a great foundation for Linde Korea in terms of securing our position as a strategic partner of Hyundai Heavy Industries."
