Industrial gasses supplier Linde is gearing up to start work on a new $83 million hydrogen plant in McIntosh, AL that will enable the firm to support the aerospace, mobility, manufacturing, and electronics industries, the state’s economic development agency announced Tuesday.
“The new plant in McIntosh will allow us to capture growth opportunities, while further increasing the reliability of our liquid hydrogen supply,” Todd Lawson, vice president of East Region for Linde, said in a release.
A standard plant design will be used to enable the company to source domestically made equipment to lower costs and reduce construction risk. Once complete, the plant will create six new jobs in operation and 10 positions for staff truck drivers.
“Linde’s new investment in Rural Washington County is significant because it shows that the company is growing and thriving in Alabama,” Gov. Kay Ivey said in a statement.
The facility is slated to commence operations in 2024.
