Compressor station in Olbernhau

The Olbernhau compressor station is located on the edge of the Ore Mountains, in the valley of the Flöha River. With three gas turbines, the station has been ensuring the right pressure in the 314-kilometer STEGAL (Saxony-Thuringia natural gas pipeline) since 1992, so that natural gas can reach central Germany from Russia via the Czech Republic and Slovakia.
