Linde Engineering has signed an agreement with BASF for the engineering, procurement and construction of a synthesis gas plant in Zhanjiang, China.

Linde Engineering’s one-stop solution for BASF combines state-of-the-art technology with a comprehensive EPC execution package. Our long-standing relationship and understanding of our customers’ needs has enabled us to develop a tailor-made package of technology and services which will support their growth in China,” said John van der Velden, Senior Vice President Global Sales & Technology at Linde Engineering.

Linde will implement the newly awarded contract in a consortium together with its Chinese partner East China Engineering Science and Technology (ECEC).
