Friedrich Vorwerk receives order worth €50 million for realization of Legden compressor station

The works on the large-scale plant will start as early as the last quarter of 2021.

Friedrich Vorwerk Group SE, a supplier of energy infrastructure, announced the acquisition of an order worth over €50 million for the realization of the Legden compressor station. The planned compressor station is part of the Zeelink project, a German energy infrastructure project playing a role in the transition from low-calorific to high-calorific gas. The plant in Legden represents the final component of the infrastructure project in Germany’s Network Development Plan (Gas) as published by the Federal Network Agency in 2015 and 2016.

The main features of the large-scale plant in Legden during the first expansion stage include two turbo compressor units in combination with a gas turbine station with a mechanical output of approximately 13 MW each. For a possible additional stage, the station can be extended by a compressor unit and corresponding connecting lines. The works on the large-scale plant will start as early as the last quarter of 2021.
