Technical problem with compressor unit at Zuidwending storage facility

30 Jan 2013

Due to a fire on the transformer of one of the five compressors at the Zuidwending storage facility, this compressor is unavailable for compression. At all times the fire was restricted to the transformer.

At this moment Gasunie Zuidwending is, together with the supplier of the transformer, investigating the cause of this fire. At the moment we cannot give an indication of the repair time, but most probably it is expected to stretch over a longer period of time.
Gasunie Zuidwending emphasizes that the capacity of the remaining units is sufficient to meet the contractual obligations, but for the time being without the usual spare capacity.

We will keep you informed on this website.
