US-headquartered industrial and process gas firm Air Products is set to install energy storage systems at three of its sites in South Korea.

The storage systems, which are planned to come online later this year, will be installed at a facility in the eastern city of Gumi as well as two sites in southeastern Ulsan.  

The capacity of the proposed storage systems was not given. 

In addition to helping Air Products to boost its energy efficiency, the company said the move will support South Korea’s aim to improve energy consumption.

“The implementation of energy storage systems at our sites reinforces our support for the government’s effort to shave peak power demand and Korea’s move towards more sustainable and efficient energy consumption,” said Kyo-Yung Kim, president of Air Products Korea.

“Korea is a strategic and important market for Air Products. We have been contributing to the local social and economic development for 45 years and are committed to building a better future for the country.”
