SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Linde LienHwa has signed a deal with South Korea’s Samsung Electronics to supply gases for its liquid crystal display (LCD) manufacturing plant at the Suzhou Industrial Park in China, Linde LienHwa said on Tuesday.

Linde LienHwa is a joint venture between Germany’s Linde group and Taiwan-based LienHwa MiTAC group.

Under this agreement, Linde LienHwa will provide Samsung Electronics with a turnkey installation of the thin-film transistor (TFT)-LCD plant’s bulk gases supply systems, the company said in a statement.

This includes the construction of a new on-site nitrogen generator which will supply gas to Samsung Electronics via an underground pipeline, it said.

“Overall investment is in the region of €50m ($64.1m),” the company added without elaborating further.

Industrial gases are key components in the production of transistors that control the pixels in LCD screens, according to Linde LienHwa.
