Compressor station Radeland 2

Thursday, September 24, 2020 by FRANKE-Filter GmbH

Natural gas is considered a low-emission fossil fuel with high reserves making it an important contribution to the natural gas supply in Germany and other European countries. When natural gas is supplied, it travels several thousand kilometers from the source to actual consumption. Due to the friction of the molecules in the gas flow and on the pipe walls, the gas loses pressure along this route. Therefore, compressor stations are built along the pipelines every 250-300 km to compensate for the pressure loss. These compressor stations are driven by gas turbines. Compressing the gas reduces its volume, resulting in the fact that more energy can be transported through the pipeline and the transport capacity of the pipeline increases.

The Radeland 2 compressor station will be built in connection with the European Gas Pipeline Link (EUGAL), in which natural gas is transported south via the Nord Stream 2 pipeline through Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, Brandenburg and Saxony to the German-Czech border. In addition, Radeland 2 will be linked to the Yamal Gas Pipeline Link (JAGAL). The compressor station comprises three identical machine units (combination of gas turbine and compressor) with a thermal capacity of 100 MW each and the other main components such as fuel gas system, filter systems, pipelines and gas coolers.

Commissioning of the compressor station is scheduled to begin by the end of 2020.

FRANKE-Filter will supply three newly developed Heavy Duty Oil Mist Separators for this large project. The compressor stations profit from special designed filter cartridges that further increase the filtration efficiency and reliability of the filters.
