They enable the isolation of gas supply and gas usage, thus enabling cost-efficient gas purchasing on the spot market.

In the final analysis this means: attractive gas prices for gas customers, and a reduction of CO2 emissions, as optimisation lines make the utilisation of gas as a primary energy source more appealing. All of this increases customer satisfaction considerably.

At the end of 2007 / beginning of 2008 EUROPIPE delivered large-diameter pipes for two optimisation lines with a total length of 24 km in the dimensions 1422 x 23.5 mm, material L485MB, to RWE Power AG, Essen. At volumes of 2.2 million m³ and 1.3 million m³, these two optimisation lines are destined to supply two gas power plants, and constitute the largest facilities in Europe.
