The world-leading gases and engineering company The Linde Group has closed a long-term deal to supply the Indonesian steel corporation PT Krakatau POSCO (PTKP) with industrial gases. Linde will invest around EUR 88 million in constructing the country's largest air separation unit (ASU) at Cilegon, around 100 km west of Jakarta. The ASU is scheduled to go on stream in October 2013.

PTKP is a joint venture between the South Korean steel corporation POSCO and Krakatau Steel, the largest integrated steel producer in Southeast Asia. It is constructing the first integrated steelworks in Southeast Asia at Cilegon, Indonesia. Annual production capacity is initially set at three million tonnes of steel.

To supply the steelworks with gases on site, Linde's Engineering Division will plan and construct a new ASU with a daily capacity of around 2,000 tonnes of oxygen. In addition, it will generate oxygen, nitrogen and argon in liquid form for the local market.
