Guildford, UK, January 27, 2022 - Linde (NYSE:LIN; FWB:LIN) announced today it has achieved another record year for small on-site contracts, signing 43 new projects during 2021, a 19% increase compared with 2020.
Linde signed new agreements totaling $170 million in 2021, with customers across 20 countries and end-markets including energy, electronics, mining and manufacturing. The new long-term agreements meet Linde's strict investment criteria and, once operational, will produce a steady revenue stream that will contribute directly to Linde's underlying growth. As most of these new contracts will require investments under $5 million, they are separate from the company's reported project backlog.
