Nuon Epe Gasspeicher

Underground gas storage facilities
Epe-Gronau, Germany

In the salt cavern field near Epe-Gronau in Nord Rhein Westfalen, Germany, a number of high performance Underground Gas Storage facilities has been realized over the past recent years owned and operated by Dutch energy companies. The storage facilities are all connected to the Dutch pipeline grid operated by the N.V. Nederlandse Gasunie. The storage facilities are all remote controlled. The gas nominations (injection and withdrawal volumes) need to be in accordance with Gasunie requirements and are to be enlisted well in advance during each trading day.

Bilfinger Tebodin acted as consultant for clients wishing to construct gas storages connected to the transport grid. One of these clients was Nuon. The scope of work consisted of detailed design and realization of aboveground facilities for underground gas storage, in cooperation with Fabricom Major Projects. An integrated approach has made possible the completion of this fast track project.
