About 15 kilometres east of Greifswald, the natural gas receiving station Lubmin 2 has been built during the last two years. It will be used for processing and measurement of incoming natural gas from Russia. On behalf of GASCADE Transport GmbH, STREICHER Anlagenbau GmbH & Co. KG carried out various gas pressure regulating and metering stations in a joint venture with PPS Pipeline Systems GmbH. The assembly work has already been completed and a number of plant tests are currently taking place. The reception station is expected to be ready for operation in spring 2020.
It is expected that at the beginning of 2020 the Nord Stream 2 pipeline, which is still under construction, will transport Russian natural gas through the Baltic Sea to Germany. Before being fed into the European long-distance gas network, it will be processed and measured in the new Lubmin 2 natural gas regulating station on the coast of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania. A part of the infrastructure consists of various new gas regulating plants and analysis rooms for pressure and volume measurement as well as of a heating gas preparation plant for the hot water supply of the entire station. The construction of these sectors was within the responsibility of the ARGE STREICHER - PPS. STREICHER Anlagenbau took over the technical management - i.e. the STREICHER subsidiary supervised and coordinated all works of the project and also carried out a number of production and assembly services as well as E/I&C technology.
