Elme Messer Gaas will build air separation plant in Moglino

Elme Messer Gaas will build a new unique air separation plant for production of liquefied gases on the territory of the Special Economic Zone Moglino in the Pskov Region (Russia). The total investment will be about 2 billion rubles.

On June 6, within the framework of St. Petersburg International Economic Forum, a trilateral investment agreement on implementation of this project was signed by AS Elme Messer Gaas, the Pskov region and the special economic zone Moglino.

“We are talking about construction of a high-tech energy-efficient plant with capacity of over 90 thousand tons per year in the North-West of Russia: it will produce liquefied technical and medical oxygen with a quality over 99.95%, and nitrogen and argon with a quality of more than 99.999%. The plant will be the largest enterprise in terms of production of liquefied industrial, food and medical gases in this region,” says Igor Berman, member of the board of Elme Messer Gaas.

The purpose of a new air separation plant construction project is a qualitative development of supplies to existing customers and increase in sales in general throughout the North-Western District, as well as in the central part of Russia. Deliveries will be made by new modern tank trucks equipped with the latest technology.

In addition, the presence of a powerful modern production resource in the Moglino SEZ will allow the company to increase the volume of export supplies to the Republic of Belarus and to the EU countries. Implementation of this project will lead to creation of over 55 new jobs, taking into account related enterprises.

Beginning of construction of the air separation plant is scheduled for the end of 2019, start of production - in the fourth quarter of 2021.

Elme Messer Gaas was founded in 1999 and is owned in equal shares by two major concerns - BLRT Grupp (Estonia) and Messer Group (Germany). Elme Messer Gaas offers its customers a complete range of industrial, medical, food and special gases, as well as a wide range of unique engineering solutions and technologies.

Special economic zone Moglino is a territory for investment projects with a special legal status, providing SEZ investors with a number of investment allowances and customs privileges, as well as guarantees access to the engineering, transport and business infrastructure. Investor costs of projects’ implementation in the SEZ are on an average 30-40% lower than the Russian national indicators.
