Bilfinger to Deliver New Systems for Natural Gas Terminal in Emden, Germany

Bilfinger has received an order from Linde for the manufacture and installation of system modules and piping technology for the new natural gas terminal in Emden.

The order is valued at about €30 million. The natural gas terminal in Emden is a key distribution station for gas that is imported from the Norwegian energy company Gassco to Germany. A quarter of the natural gas consumed in Germany will be handled by the plant.

The Group company Bilfinger VAM Anlagetechnik will pre-fabricate and subsequently install around 150 plant modules as well as piping components and steel parts on the grounds of the natural gas terminal. Some of the plant components weigh up to 100 tons. In addition, Bilfinger VAM will also deliver corrosion protection and insulation. Work is scheduled for completion in mid 2015.
