Linde Nippon Sanso (LNS) has been awarded a long-term contract to supply gases for Bosch Solar's new manufacturing site in Erfurt, Germany. Under the turnkey contract, Linde will provide high-purity nitrogen from an on-site air separation unit and bulk oxygen.
Bosch Solar, a division of Bosch Group, produces crystalline silicon solar cells at its site in Arnstadt, near Erfurt. The Bosch Erfurt site is expanding with the investment of more than 530 million Euro for the construction of a completely new facility to manufacture crystalline silicon solar cells. When fully ramped, the overall capacity of the site will reach 630 MW.
