Linde, a world-leading industrial gases and engineering company, is constructing a new world-class integrated heavy crude residue gasification complex to be located and integrated with its existing gasification facility on Jurong Island in Singapore. Linde’s new complex will quadruple its current production capacity in Singapore to produce and supply hydrogen gas to its customers in Singapore.

To ensure the success of this world-scale complex, Linde deployed an execution strategy that leverages the strength and capabilities of its global engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) management expertise across the world. The process concept and design, as well as the full EPC has been developed by Linde Engineering and the overall engineering of the plant is being executed out of its hubs in China, India and Germany.

Linde’s construction execution strategy will further utilise advanced modularisation to optimise construction productivity and to reduce the labour intensity on site, which will help improve overall site safety. The largest super-module made for the new complex is approximately 3500 metric tonnes, which will be fabricated in India and shipped to Jurong Island, Singapore. The construction was started in the second half of 2019 with start-up anticipated in 2023, however due to the present COVID pandemic it will be extended further.

Citec was selected as engineering partner for the scope of detail engineering of Civil items of this highly important project for Linde, and our work with the project started already in 2019.

We are proud to have been selected by Linde for this important project in Asia. First of all, I want to thank all project team members for their hard work, flexibility and dedication despite the challenges due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We performed an effective project management and as a result, Linde appreciated Citec’s efforts in the execution of the project. The way of working was successful and required a strong cooperation spirit and attitude from both parties, as always.
