Start of work to upgrade the Montesano station

Work began on upgrading the Montesano (Salerno) compressor station.

The aim of this project is to increase the transport capacity of the existing network of “ trans-Mediterranean�? gas pipelines, and it will conclude the compressor stations upgrade project begun in 2004.

The upgrade will consist of a series of plant improvement interventions (e.g. modifications to the station’s piping, installation of new boilers etc.), plus the addition of a new latest-generation 25 MW aeroderivative Dry Low Emission turbo-compressor unit and environmental mitigation measures to make the station blend in with the landscape.

The new unit is planned to enter operation in September 2011.

The work will be carried out in conformance with the Environmental Management System for the compressor stations, operated by Snam Rete Gas to the UNI EN ISO 14001 standard.
