Finnish state-owned gas company Gasum said on Wednesday it had agreed to buy Linde's liquefied natural gas (LNG) and marine bunkering business in Norway and Sweden. Gasum did not disclose the value of the deal. The assets include one LNG liquefaction plant, two LNG terminals, two LNG bunkering vessels and 48 gas filling stations.
Linde, the world's biggest industrial gases group, has taken a 10% stake in Hydrospider AG, a Swiss producer and supplier of hydrogen derived from renewable energy sources, Hydrospider said on Thursday. Hydrospider is currently building a plant to turn electricity from a hydroelectric station run by Swiss utility Alpiq into hydrogen for trucks to be built by a joint venture of Hyundai Motors and Swiss group H2 Energy. Alpiq and H2 Energy each own 45% in Hydrospider, whose site will start commercial operations by the end of the year.
Asia's hydrogen gas demand will rise as the region's oil refineries use the gas to produce low-sulphur fuel to meet new environmental regulations, the head of the world's largest industrial gas producer said on Tuesday. "The demand for hydrogen has grown steadily over the years at a much faster rate than GDP growth," Linde Plc's Chief Executive Officer Steve Angel told Reuters ahead of the groundbreaking ceremony for Linde's $1.4-billion gas project on Singapore's Jurong Island. The project is Linde's biggest investment globally and will quadruple its gas capacity in Singapore.
Industrial gases group Linde said on Tuesday it will spend $1.4 billion (£1.1 billion) to boost its Singapore gasification facilities to support the planned expansion of Exxon Mobil Corp's nearby integrated refining complex. The investment will enable Linde's facility on Jurong Island to supply additional hydrogen and synthesis gas to Exxon's Singapore refinery, the company said in a statement. Exxon's expansion project, which is expected to come online in 2023, would convert fuel oil and other residual crude products into higher-value lube base stocks and distillates to help meet stricter emissions rules.
Linde announced today that its subsidiary, Praxair, Inc., has been named a 2019 DiversityInc Noteworthy Company for the fourth consecutive year. Noteworthy companies are selected based on a survey that addresses four key areas of diversity management: Talent Pipeline, Talent Development, Leadership Accountability and Supplier Diversity.
When Thyssenkrupp CEO Guido Kerkhoff announced plans to list its prized elevators unit last week, he set off a battle for the conglomerate's future that could test Germany's brand of "social market" capitalism. Kerkhoff had little choice but to think the unthinkable when the company's share price sank to a 15-year low on May 8. Now Thyssenkrupp's future is in play, with activist investors on the one side baying for a restructuring of the group to drive up value, and its top shareholder - the charitable Krupp foundation - and workers on the other side with a mandate to protect the unity of the company and jobs.
FRANKFURT/DUESSELDORF (Reuters) - Finland's Kone is assessing the viability of a bid for Thyssenkrupp's 14 billion euro (12 billion pounds) elevators division even as the German conglomerate pursues plans to list it, four people familiar with the matter said. Thyssenkrupp last week ditched a plan to spin off its capital goods business after months of shareholder criticism, and opted instead to list elevators, its most profitable division, to raise badly needed cash. The sources said it was not clear if Kone could fund an all-cash bid and whether or not the deal would face significant anti-trust hurdles similar to Thyssenkrupp's failed steel joint venture with Tata Steel.
