GRTgaz participation in the Energy Days

27/03/2013

GRTgaz is organizing open days at its facilities within the framework of the Energy Days (held from 29 to 31 March).

Press release


The Energy Days are held as part of the Government-organized debate on energy transition. They provide the general public with an opportunity to visit locations and find out about the various initiatives and key players involved in energy in their region. The facility open days are also an opportunity to talk to visitors about the role that infrastructures play and how they can help support the energy transition.

Distributed all along the 32,000 km of the natural gas transport network, compressor plants are industrial facilities that are vital for maintaining the pressure needed for gas to flow through the pipelines. Across its whole network, GRTgaz has 25 compressor plants – approximately one every 150 km.
