regulations, and demonstrate that it can be part of a sustainable future. At the same time, plant operators face the ever-present challenge of lowering costs and maintaining profitable operations. Decarbonization requires partnership; Linde Engineering and Siemens Energy will explore how renewable technologies and energy storage can be leveraged to support customers’ decarbonization initiatives.

To help the industry meet these demands, Siemens Energy and Linde Engineering have entered into a strategic partnership. As part of the collaboration agreement, the two companies will leverage their complementary portfolios and competencies to investigate, develop, and optimize technology and equipment packages to enhance the sustainability and performance of petrochemical facilities (brownfields and greenfields).

The companies will jointly conduct studies that explore how Siemens Energy’s and Linde Engineering’s technologies can be combined to facilitate the decarbonization of petrochemical plants through emissions reductions and increases in energy efficiency – for example, by optimizing the consumption of power and steam.

Particular areas that will be evaluated include, but are not limited to, the use of Siemens Energy’s products, including gas turbines, steam turbines, compressors, and generators with Linde Engineering’s steam cracker technology and related processes for olefin production, purification, and separation. The companies will also explore how renewable technologies and energy storage can be leveraged to support customers’ decarbonization initiatives. Other key performance areas that will be targeted for improvement include plant availability and uptime, maintenance, OPEX and CAPEX, and regulatory compliance.
