THE GAS utility Slovenský Plynárenský Priemysel (SPP) will spend €60 million (Sk2 billion) on two new turbocompressors for the Veľké Kapušany compressor station.

SPP spokesperson Dana Kršáková told the SITA newswire that, based on the results of an international tender, the Italian company Nuovo Pignone will supply the 30 megawatt turbocompressors. Nuovo Pignone is a member of the General Electric (GE) group.

The new facility will start operating by the end of 2009.

“By putting these new turbocompressors into operation, the international transport of natural gas will be more reliable, while highly modern technology will contribute to further environmental improvements,” said Andreas Rau, a member of the SPP Preprava board of directors.

SPP Preprava is an affiliate of SPP involved in transporting natural gas across Slovakia.
