Linde North America, which has its headquarters in Murray Hill, announced Wednesday that it is building a rail siding at a Texas facility as part of a $250 million project.Linde, a gases and engineering company that also has facilities in New Providence, said in a news release that the rail siding will serve the air separation unit, which is scheduled to be up and running in December. The air separation unit, Linde’s largest in the U.S., divides air into its major components, oxygen, nitrogen and argon.
“The rail siding will connect with the Union Pacific rail line to facilitate shipment of liquid argon in cryogenic tankers to serve customers in Northern California and the Pacific Northwest — and points in between,” Jai Jaishankar, senior project manager-project execution, said in a prepared statement. “The major users of the product are semiconductor manufacturers, steel producers and welding distributors to make shielding gases.”
