    Our services for mobile natural gas supply include the entire handling of the project, from receipt of your inquiry through preparation on-site, procurement and delivery of the gas to feed-in.

Maintenance and repair work on the natural gas network is generally carried out with the pipeline being gas-free, so the relevant pipe sections are isolated by installing valve assemblies and the gas in the isolated section is vented to atmosphere.

By using our mobile compressors – individually or in highly efficient parallel operation – the network operator can transfer the gas from the isolated pipe section to another part of the system so it does not have to be vented to atmosphere. Connection points for the mobile compressors are available e.g. in the area of the main line valves or can generally be retrofitted.

It makes economic sense to transfer the gas to another as this guarantees responsible handling of this primary energy source and makes a substantial contribution to protecting the environment.

Services offered:

  • Pipeline recompression until lowest residual pressure < 3bar
  • Reduction of methane emissions by up to 95%
  • Responsible handling with primary energy
  • High environmental protection effect
  • Cost savings
  • Specific turnkey service
  • Compile or adapt the connecting points
