Air Products, Poland's largest supplier of industrial gases, plans new investment projects to strengthen its position on the local market and expand its operations in other countries in Central and Eastern Europe. In October, the company announced plans to build a modern cylinder filling depot in Warsaw. Construction is due to start next year, and the depot is expected to become operational in 2010. The depot will use the latest technology to fill more than 3,000 cylinders per day at a pressure of 200 bar, company executives said.

The depot is Air Products' second facility to be built in Poland from scratch. The first opened in Kędzierzyn-Koźle in the south in September 2005. Additionally, Air Products has four other cylinder filling depots in this country: in Siewierz, Brzeg Dolny, Oświęcim, and Poznań.

Next year Air Products plans to complete expansion of its liquid gas production plant in Kędzierzyn-Koźle, the company's largest project in Poland. Thanks to the installation of a new condensing unit, the plant will double its oxygen and nitrogen production capacity to 800 metric tons daily to meet growing demand from Polish industry.

Air Products has also announced investment plans for other countries in Central and Eastern Europe. The company has signed a contract with the Alcoa company in Russia to supply nitrogen to Alcoa's plant in Samara, one of Russia's key industrial regions.

Under the contract, Air Products will install two high-purity nitrogen generators that will be put into operation next year. The company is already involved in projects in the Moscow region and will now have a presence in the Samara region as well.

In Slovakia, Air Products has launched a new high-purity hydrogen plant in the city of Novaky. The plant will enable the company to supply hydrogen to more customers in Slovakia, the Czech Republic, Poland, and Hungary. The plant will support key industries in the glass, metal and food sectors, and will complement the company's existing facility in Litvinov in the Czech Republic.
