Nikkiso Cryogenic Industries’ Clean Energy & Industrial Gases Group, a subsidiary of Nikkiso Co, Ltd (Japan), has announced the establishment of a new office in Moscow, Russia, managed by Ayman Zeitoun, Vice President, Russia.
The facility will allow the Group to support LNG and Petrochemical customers in the Russian market, as well as CIS countries.
As well as establishing its new office, the Group recently received a contract to supply all the cryogenic pumps in a major liquefaction terminal under construction. A major portion of these pumps will be designed and engineered at the Group’s Higashimurayama, Tokyo plant, and assembled and tested in its new factory in Miyazaki City, Japan. The remainder of the pumps will be provided by ACD Cryo, Germany.
For the first time, Nikkiso has been able to provide all of the Cryogenic pumps for a project this size. This has only been made possible as a result of the Group’s newly built factory in Miyazaki, Japan, which is allowing the Group to further diversify its product and manufacturing facilities outside of the US, and to better meet the global needs of its customers. The new factory also enables the Group to localise its cryogenic pumps in Russia and meet future local requirements.
“We are excited for this opportunity and the potential to grow our business in Russia. While this is the first order for our Miyazaki factory, with it, we look forward to being able to grow our presence and provide expanded solutions throughout the global market,” says Peter Wagner, CEO of Cryogenic Industries and President of the Group.
The project in question is scheduled to commence operations in late 2022 and will run for several years. The Group reportedly has a long and productive relationship with the client.
