Gas Storage Facilities

Gas Storage Facilities

Underground storage fields are constructed by leaching caverns in salt domes. This is the best way to store natural gas. The gas is injected into the underground caverns under high pressure and when needed, it is filtered, dehydrated, and delivered back into the grid. Each storage field consists of multiple caverns, which have above- and underground components. We provide the control technology for automating surface facilities.

More and more companies invest in the complete automation of their natural gas storage fields to be able to perform an increasing number of multi-cyclical operations securely. Over the years, we have equipped many cavern storage stations — from the storage fields in Kraak and Krummhörn to Friedeburg (currently under construction) and Peckensen as well as Etzel II and III — with our extensive knowledge in process engineering. We usually deliver not only the station control technology but also more elements from our electronics package. This includes emergency shutdown systems, instrumentation, fire and gas detection, UPS, low-voltage switchgear systems, or emergency diesel generators. The core of our services, however, still is the complete automation of the entire surface facility based on the control system SIMATIC PCS 7.

Project Management "Successful projects are above all well-managed projects" (Sven Lehmann, project manager)

All sub-processes of this core process are designed for trouble-free, cost-efficient, and customer-oriented order processing. Our staff, trained according to standards of the IPMA (International Project Management Association), will work with you and the project team to develop project objectives, project organization, timetables, and resource planning. Regular reporting enables effective management in order to react in time to possible deviations in budget and scheduling. During the final project meeting, the project team discusses and then assesses the completed project. Continuous improvement in this core process is particularly important to us as this also translates into optimally meeting our customers' future needs.

Detail Engineering We manage your complexities!

Precise and thorough detail engineering is the foundation of every good plant. Whether new guidelines and laws, safety-related aspects, or even explosive environments have to be considered, operators and installers are always facing new requirements. Great importance is also attached to the transparent presentation of the results during the engineering phase. It's the top-quality circuit documentation and clear design of the configuration screens and block diagrams that contribute to this necessary transparency. Our performance portfolio in the field of detail engineering includes supplier-independent detailed planning of switchgear cabinets, hardware and software planning of controllers and control systems, design of remote I/O and fieldbus systems, CAD/CAE planning with ePLAN, ELCAD, AUTOCAD, Technical Visio, WS CAD, Sigraph ET, SIL calculations.

Procurement We procure quality!

As an integral part of the project phase, procurement ensures the economic supply of goods and services. The purchasing team is responsible for acquiring services and material, which then can be further processed and delivered to you. The procurement of Bilfinger GreyLogix can provide you with all necessary parts for low cost not only during, but after the project as well whenever you require spare parts. We manage procurement efficiently through a productive organizational structure and thus supporting you in your objectives.

The strictest quality gates for the highest demands

Our test field ensures the quality of the Bilfinger GreyLogix switchgear and control cabinets. Our qualified staff, who are specially authorized for this task, test the complete functionality of the systems and supervise the operation of the test field. With state-of-the-art and calibrated measuring and monitoring instruments, we ensure that only tested, high-quality finished products leave our switchgear production facility. Only after the products have passed our strict "quality gates" will the installation be performed at the customer plant. This ensures that we contribute to the economic and, above all, safe plant operation of our discerning customers.

Switchgear Construction Switchgears made just for you

At our locations in Flensburg and Neustadt an der Weinstrasse, we manufacture tailor-made switchgear cabinets for customers active in industries, such as natural gas, processing and chemicals, power plants, heat and cooling, as well as engineering firms. We comply with all current provisions and regulations while also setting our own high quality standards. These standards start with our CNC-aided metalworking of the control cabinets and mounting plates and end with an extensive quality control test. Working in partnership with our suppliers ensures the best purchasing conditions, which we gladly pass on to you. Certified according to UL508A Panel Shop Program

FAT Test Field Making room for a close and critical look

In our dedicated FAT area, we collaborate with our customers for a final functional test on our products. Customers have their own rooms in the testing area while they accompany the tests. Only after the products have passed our strict "quality gates" will the installation be performed at the customer plant. This ensures that only tested, high-quality finished products leave our production facility.

Loopcheck Ensuring quality under real conditions

Quality and safety are important to us because they are crucial to the economical operation of your plant. A loop check is a method for testing the continuity of transmission devices and performing a measurement assessment on them. This test method detects problems in plants and forwards this information to identify the errors. Before the plant goes into operation, our technicians carry out a final check on the hardware and software and perform a thorough test on the installed components under real conditions.

Commissioning All's well that ends well!

After completing the electrical and/or control system installation, we'll test and optimize all systems under operating conditions to ensure that the subsequent automation processes for production, manufacturing, extraction, energy generation, etc. all work smoothly. Our commissioning engineers provide on-site support until the plant has successfully started operations. The customers then determine whether they want further support beyond the commissioning (IBN) period for the start-up and transfer of the plant to the operating personnel.
