GASCADE compressor station
in Rehden

The largest GASCADE pipeline node with compressor station is located south of Bremen in the Lower Saxony town of Rehden. This is where the high-pressure pipelines of the NEL, RHG, MIDAL North/South, NOWAL and NOWEGA meet. What is special about this site is that it has one compressor with a gas turbine and two electrical compressors. These allow the natural gas to be further transported in any direction, as the situation demands.
