Industrial gas supplier Linde has expanded its existing long-term agreement for the supply of industrial gases with Jindal Stainless Limited. Under the terms of the new agreement, Linde will build a second ASU, more than tripling the current total capacity of its plant at Kalinganagar. The additional supply will support the significant expansion of JSL’s facility. The new ASU is expected to start up in the first half of 2024 and will be an additional supply source for the local merchant market. Linde already supplies oxygen, nitrogen and argon to JSL from its on-site Air Separation Unit at the Kalinganagar Industrial Estate in Odisha, East India.
