Air Liquide is announcing the commissioning of a new high-pressure and high-purity gaseous oxygen production unit in Italy. It was installed in Castelnuovo del Garda, near Verona, where Air Liquide already operates another Air Separation Unit. With a production capacity of around 800 t/day, the new unit will bring the total production capacity on this site to 1,100 t of oxygen per day. The total investment amounts to around 40 EUR million.
This new production capacity will enable Air Liquide to meet the increasing demand of its customers who are connected to the 700 km long pipeline network that extends into Po Valley, between Genoa and Padua. It notably supplies the steelmaker Arvedi, located in Cremona, as well as many customers in northern Italy.
With 12 production units installed in the region and more than 100 EUR million invested in Italy over the past 5 years, Air Liquide intends to support the development of its customers and consolidate its leadership in Italy.
