Nikkiso Clean Energy & Industrial Gases Group (Nikkiso) has expanded its sales, services, and engineering capabilities to the African market. Located in Waterfall, South Africa, the new facility will provide a stronger footprint in Africa and support South Africa’s engineering hub and economic center. Local engineers and field service support will bring specific knowledge of the region and local markets, the company said.
In addition to offering technical sales for all the Nikkiso’s products, the facility includes an air separation unit commissioning team. The additional engineering support will provide process and design optimization and innovative solutions for the region. The facility will also provide liquefied natural gas (LNG) equipment to support the large natural gas expansion off Mozambique and potential development of virtual pipelines for LNG fuel to mitigate the electricity crisis.
Bruce van Dongen will serve as managing director.
Nikkiso member companies manufacture and service engineered cryogenic gas processing equipment (pumps, turboexpanders, heat exchangers, etc.) and process plants for industrial gases, LNG, hydrogen liquefaction, and organic Rankine cycle for waste heat recovery.
