The Launch of the Air Separation Unit Plant for Brunei Oxygen Sendirian Berhad, BRUNOX marks an important milestone towards improving Brunei Darussalam's supply chain for Industrial gases. It is now capable of producing liquid nitrogen, oxygen and argon which have previously been largely imported. The Air Separation Unit Plant has anticipated production of 40 tonnes of gas per day, which will be valuable to industrial activities across the country. It is also expected to double BRUNOX's current storage capacity which would further enable the exploration overseas export opportunities. The ceremony took place at the Kuala Belait Industrial Complex this morning. Speaking at the launching ceremony, Yang Berhormat Dato Seri Setia Dr Awang Haji Mat Suny bin Hajii Mohd Hussein, Minister of Energy (Energy and Manpower) and Industry is confident that with the success of the Brunei brand in regional and international markets, BRUNOX's achievement is a source of pride for the country.
In achieving Brunei Darussalam's economic diversification targets, the Ministry of energy (Energy and Manpower) and Industry with Darussalam Enterprise encourage the private sector to consider on how to generate more value-added activities to maximise economic benefit, local value creation and employment opportunities especially in government-supported industrial sites.
BRUNOX has been operating in the country with almost 60 years of experience as a reliable and leading manufacturer, marketer and distributor of industrial, medical and special gases. As the first Air Separation Plant in Brunei Darussalam, BRUNOX with partners Air Liquide and QAF Brunei, its production is indispensable in a wide range of industries in the country.
