Gascontrol Polska Hands Over Kędzierzyn-Koźle Compressor Station in Poland
Gascontrol Polska was awarded by Gaz-system S.A. the contract for the construction of the compressor station in Kędzierzyn-Koźle in the beginning of 2021. The project was completed in March 2022.
The gas compressor station is one of the key investments implemented in the area of south-western Poland. Together with compressor stations executed as a part of the Baltic Pipe Project, it will enable an increase in the compression capacity of the gas transmission system in Poland by more than 50%. The compressor station is located at the junction of the transmission gas pipelines that are part of the North-South Gas Corridor.
The role of the gas compressor station is to provide gas compression up to the required pressure level in multiple flow directions (western, southern and eastern). It is the first gas compressor station in the Opole Voivodeship. In the first stage, the compressor station was equipped with three compressor sets driven by gas turbines with a total capacity of 23 MW. Currently, the station is being extended by Gascontrol Polska with another re-deployable compressor set with a capacity of 11MW.
