At the end of 2015 ILF Consulting Engineers was commissioned by terranets bw Gmbh to provide construction design, construction supervision and start-up services for an additional gas turbine compressor unit in the Scharenstetten compressor station.
In the framework of the gas network development plan, the Baden-Württemberg transmission system operator terranets bw GmbH will expand the station in existence since 1988 by adding a fourth compressor to the three machine units currently in operation. The works include, in addition to the erection of machine unit 4, a Solar Taurus 60° (approx. 350,000 m³/h), the construction of a new compressor building and an electrical building. Besides various tie-ins to the station piping, the facility will also be equipped with a ground flare system, two new gas coolers and auxiliaries. Start-up is scheduled for Q1/2017.
