Messer Builds Plant for MOL in Hungary

December 4, 2019

Messer Hungarogáz Ltd., member of the Germany-based supplier of industrial gases Messer Group GmbH has signed a contract for the construction of a new on-site facility with MOL Petrochemicals, a member of Hungary's MOL Group.

A statement by the Messer Group says that the plant will supply nitrogen and instrument air for a new polyol complex in the northeastern Hungarian town of Tiszaújváros and is due to go into operation in 2021. With approximately 14,500 standard cubic meters of nitrogen and 27,000 standard cubic meters of instrument air per hour, it will be one of Messer’s larger on-site facilities in Southeast Europe. Polyol is the basic material for polyurethane foams, which are used as versatile polymer products in the construction, automotive, packaging and furniture industries. As part of a major investment, Messer commissioned its third air separation unit in Hungary at the MOL site as recently as 2017.

Messer, the largest family-run industrial gases specialist worldwide, has been one of the leading industrial gases manufacturers in Hungary for 30 years. In the past three years, Messer has invested EUR 37.4 million in the expansion of its Hungarian operations. Messer is the market leader in the Hungarian on-site sector with 21 gas production facilities and plants currently operating at the sites of twelve major customers.

Earlier, Messer installed two new nitrogen generators in the Hungarian towns of Dunavarsány and Hatvan. A third one is under construction. The capacity of the carbon dioxide field in Ölbő, Hungary, has been trebled in the past two years through the construction of another two CO2 plants to meet the growing demand. The total production capacity of the three plants is 120,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide a year.
