Linde opens new Houston engineering offices
With the recently announced $200 million investment to build a large air separation unit (ASU), a new gasification train and supporting equipment and facilities in La Porte, Texas, the new offices provide space to support activities surrounding those projects, according to Linde officials.
Several groups within the gases and engineering
divisions of Linde have moved into new offices in Houston,
the company said on Wednesday.
With the recently announced $200 million investment to build a
large air separation unit (ASU), a new gasification train and
supporting equipment and facilities in La Porte, Texas, the
new offices provide space to support activities surrounding the
project, according to Linde
The offices will also allow further expansion of engineering and construction activities to support
other projects managed by Linde
Engineering in North America.
The new 12,000 square-foot office, located off Beltway 8 in
West Houston, will house sales, business development, and construction activities for Linde
Engineering North America and Linde Gas.
"Establishing a multi-discipline office in Houston enhances our
presence in the Houston Ship Channel area which is a rapidly
growing market for our products and services," said Pat Murphy,
president of Linde North America. "It provides an opportunity
for Linde to provide our customers with the best service Linde
has to offer."
The ASU in La Porte will be the largest operated by Linde in
the US and the addition of a new gasification plant will create
the world's largest gas-based partial oxidation complex for the
production of syngas products for petrochemicals.
"Linde Engineering North America has supplied technologies to
the refining and petrochemical industries in the Gulf
region for many years," said Bruce Hensinger, CEO of Linde
Engineering North America. "This expansion affirms our commitment to
our current and prospective customers in the region."
