HIGHLIGHTS


 Taiyo Nippon Sanso Philippines, Inc. , a 100% subsidiary owed by Ingasco, Incorporated, one of the country’s leading manufacturers and suppliers of industrial gases has recently inaugurated its 3.50 hectares new air separation plant expansion in Brgy. Pagaspas, Tanauan, Batangas.
Vice-President Noli de Castro, senior government officials lead the switch-on ceremonies held at the Rizal Ballroom of EDSA Shangrila Hotel in Makati last February 2, 2008. Government officials that also graced the event were Gov. Armando C. Sanchez of Batangas and Ms. Lilia B. de Lima, PEZA Director General. Together with Nippon Sanso Corp. Japan (TNSC) President & CEO, Mr. Hirosuke Matsueda, Ingasco Chairman of the Board, Mr. Yasunobo Kawaguchi, Director Murphy Chu, Director Akahiro Marutani, Director Masahiro Shindo, Executive Vice-President & COO, Mr. Raymond M. Chu and President & CEO, Mr. Hiroshi Nagae.

The new Air Separation Plant was installed at Philtown Industrial Estate in Tanauan, Batangas with a total lot area of 3.50 hectares. This ASP plant produces liquid oxygen, liquid nitrogen and liquid pure argon from air by means of air cryogenic separation process. The plant has a rated air input capacity of 15,700 m3/hr from which the following products are derived:


a.) Liquid Nitrogen (LIN) 7,000 Nm3/hr
b.) Liquid Oxygen (LOX) 3,000 Nm3/hr
c.) Liquid Argon (LAR) 120 Nm3/hr
 

The plant operation involves several processes such as air separation, liquefier/rectification, refrigeration and purification sections which enable attainment of product purity as high as 0.1 ppm. However, the plant has a total storage capacity of 1.4 million cubic meters that provides enough inventory and allows proper scheduling of equipment maintenance.
Last July, TNSPI has commissioned a new hydrogen plant which expects to cater customers particularly in Laguna, Batangas, and Cavite Areas. It has a rated production capacity of 100 Nm3/hr and has a guaranteed H2 gas product purity of 99.999%. The production process involves several sub-system operations such as H2 gas generation, feed water, electrolyte preparation and circulation and H2 gas purifying and loading/filling.


New Hydrogen Plant Commissioned at Taiyo Nippon Sanso Phils., Inc.

Taiyo Nippon Sanso Philippines, Inc. (TNSPI), a subsidiary of Ingasco has commissioned a new hydrogen plant last July 19, 2008. Located in Tanuan Batangas the plant expects to cater customers particularly in Laguna, Batangas, and Cavite Areas.
This project was spurred by Sales and Marketing requirement to increase the volume production of Hydrogen as the demand from customer increases particularly on semicon, electronic, and steel manufacturing industry.
 

The new plant has a production capacity of 100 Nm3/hr. An addition to the existing 60 Nm3/hr production of Hydrogen plant in San Simon, Pampanga. This new plant utilizes Electrolysis process thus; hydrogen is collected from the decomposition of components of water into Hydrogen and Oxygen.
Supply of Equipment Engineering and construction of the hydrogen plant was provided by Best Value Trading Company together with their overseas partner Tianjin Mainland Hydrogen Equipment Co., Ltd. Over-all engineering was handled by Ingasco Special Project Team in various area of assignments were headed by Matt Shindo, Ret Sampol, Leo Cuevas, and Nolan Lustre .


Hydrogen was quoted as the “fuel of the future” due to its abundance and non polluting combustion. Globally there is a growing initiative of developing fuel cell vehicles powered by hydrogen and study shows that it has the potential to revolutionize the transportation system, with the increasing oil price in the market today; we can never tell sooner hydrogen can be a better alternative.
