DEPA planning new gas infrastructure for west Macedonia region

DEPA, the Public Gas Corporation, responding to energy infrastructure development needs addressed by local authorities in the west Macedonia region of northern Greece, has designed a natural gas compressor unit for installation at the TAP project’s GBV21 Block Valve Station in the Perdikkas area, located slightly north of Ptolemaida.

The gas corporation intends to include the compressor unit project in its investment program. Its development will enable tankers to load and transfer natural gas to existing telethermal units in the northern provincial cities of Kozani, Prolemaida, Amynteo and Florina.

The same compressor unit will also be used to transfer natural gas to the nearby provincial city Grevena and supply its prospective natural gas distribution network to be constructed by DEDA, a DEPA offshoot. The distribution network is planned to cater to Grevena household and commercial consumers.
