The State Office for the Environment Brandenburg has completed the approval process for the Radeland 2 compressor station in Baruth/Mark. The approved facility is part of the infrastructure of the European Gas Lines (EUGAL). The Radeland 2 compressor station was requested and approved in a stand-alone procedure.
Already on 6 February 2019, the company GASCADE Gastransport GmbH as a developer received a permit for an early start of construction. The permit covers, among other things, the clearing of trees on the site of the future Radeland 2 compressor station, earthworks and foundations, and the erection of a site for assembly.
The Radeland 2 compressor station comprises three compressors and a gas pressure regulating and measuring system. In addition, the station will be connected to the Yamal gas connection line (JAGAL). The completion of the Radeland 2 compressor station is scheduled for the end of 2020.
Compressor stations are an important element in the pipeline network. From source to consumer, natural gas travels many kilometres and loses pressure. This loss must be compensated – compressor stations increase the natural gas pressure and continue to ‘pump’ the gas.
