Description of Facility and Services

The Kidričevo Compressor Station was designed in the years 1999 to 2000 and represents the first natural gas compressor station in Slovenia designed by IBE. It provides uninterrupted supply and transfer of natural gas in the Republic of Slovenia. The compressors used for natural gas transfer are driven by two 4.30 MW gas turbines operating in open cycle. Uprating of the existing Kidričevo Compressor Station shall take place in the years to follow by installation of additional five gas turbines of approximately 7 MW power which shall drive the compressors at natural gas inlet pressure of 35 bar and at natural gas outlet pressure of 70 bar, transmission capacity foreseen is 750,000 Sm3/h. The natural gas transfer is foreseen in both directions, so in the direction towards Austria as in direction towards Croatia while simultaneous natural gas transport across the Republic of Slovenia shall be provided as well. The facility shall so meet the more and more increasing demand of natural gas in industry and in newly foreseen power generating units. Complete automation of the station as well as man-free operation is foreseen. Remote control of the complete station shall be provided from the dispatching centre of Geoplin Plinovodi in Ljubljana.

The IBE d.d. services encompassed elaboration of complete design and technical documentation.
