Technip awarded contract by EDF for a gas storage project in Germany

Technip has been awarded by EDF (Electricité de France S.A.), in coordination with EnBW Energie Baden-Württemberg AG, an engineering, procurement and construction management contract for the “Crystal” Gas Plant project located in Etzel, Germany.

The “Crystal” project covers gas compression and treatment facilities for the storage of gas in underground salt caverns. Gas will be injected into the caverns at times of low gas prices and withdrawn to feed into the Dutch and the German gas grids, notably during periods of peak demand.

Following a recent award from OMV in Austria, this award marks another milestone in the field of underground gas storage for Technip’s operating center in Düsseldorf, Germany.

Present in 46 countries, Technip has operating centers and industrial assets (manufacturing plants, spoolbases, construction yard) on five continents, and operates its own fleet of specialized vessels for pipeline installation and subsea construction.
