Elsis TS has signed a contract with the consortium of MT Group UAB and PPS Pipeline Systems GmbH for subcontracting services for the installation of a gas metering station (DAS) in Karksi (Estonia), which includes the design, installation and commissioning and debugging of the electrical, process automation, SCADA, communications, security and fire protection systems.
The Karksi DAS, operated by Elering AS, an independent electricity and gas transmission system operator supplying energy to Estonian consumers, is a crucial part of Estonia’s gas trunkline pipeline, providing a gas transmission link to Latvia. The new DAS will be fully automated, remotely controlled and will allow for metering of incoming/outgoing gas flows. The station will have a capacity of 10 million cubic metres of gas per day.
The contract is worth over €1.6 million excluding VAT. All work is scheduled to be completed by 1 April 2019.
