Gas cooling at the compressor station in Bobbau

The Bobbau network hub, which was rebuilt and expanded from 1998 to 2001, is located in the network of Ontras, a subsidiary of VNG (Verbundnetz Gas AG). Six long-distance gas pipelines converge there and can be switched as needed. The compressor station maintains the gas to be transported at 55 bar, thus stabilizing the pressure level in the VNG pipeline system.

In addition to on-site control, the plant’s degree of automation also enables remote monitoring and remote control from the Leipzig control center.
