We are proud of this big and important investment for us as well as for Serbia and the SEE region
Messer Tehnogas, Belgrade has started up a new specialty gases plant in the industrial zone of Pančevo, further expanding the company’s capabilities and capacities in this segment in Europe.
The design, project and execution of the new specialty gases filling plant was made entirely by internal resources of Messer Tehnogas, namely of the engineering department and the specialty gases team partially in consultation with Messer Central Logistics Department.
Using various filling levels, the plant will produce a broad spectrum of high-purity gases, standard mixtures and customized gas mixtures from the portfolio of over 70 components. These are further complemented by mixtures such as synthetic air, banana gas, hydrogen-containing forming gases, and shielding gases for high-alloy steels and nickel-based alloys or for aluminum and non-ferrous metals. In addition, very challenging individually customized mixtures containing over 30 different hydrocarbon components in the single cylinder in the gaseous phase as well as hydrocarbon mixtures in the liquid phase are now produced as well.
“The design, project and execution of the new specialty gases filling plant was made entirely by internal resources of Messer Tehnogas”
With high-quality specialty gas products such as mixtures with corrosive or reactive components in the ppm and ppb range, we are addressing the high demands of our customers and giving our contribution to the greener living environment. Typical applications for high-purity gases and their mixtures include use as test gases in research and development, medicine and measurement technology for example air quality.
The new specialty gases plant is located right next to the helium filling plant that Messer has been operating in Pančevo since 2011. The relocation eliminates the need to transport products to the former specialty gases site – a facility which, despite renovation and expansion work, had reached the limit of its capacities, including its ability to launch new products. The on-site testing and calibration laboratory operated by Messer is accredited according to the worldwide ISO 17025 standard. It received a new regulatory approval after its relocation to the new site.
Đorđe Savić, Managing Director at Messer Tehnogas, expresses his thanks to all employees involved in the project for the successful realization: “We are proud of this big and important investment for us as well as for Serbia and the SEE region”.
