By DJ Slater07 January 2021
Nikkiso Cryogenic Industries’ Clean Energy and Industrial Gases Group, a part of Nikkiso Co., Ltd., has sold its turboexpander business line to Air Liquide, effective Jan. 1.
Located primarily in Santa Ana, California, the turboexpander business line designs, manufactures and sells turboexpanders within the industrial gas industry, as well as the natural gas liquefaction industry.
Air Liquide specializes in gases, technologies and services and has been the largest customer of the Nikkiso Group’s turboexpander business line, the company said.
Nikkiso’s Cryogenic Service (NCS) unit will remain an authorized service company and will continue to provide aftermarket services, including repair and servicing of ACD-designed turboexpander machines. Air Liquide, meanwhile, will provide services to its plants and third-party plant customers.
