Our aim is to minimise environmental impact in our operations
We take our impact on the environment very seriously. We have installed electrically driven compressors at Zeebrugge. This use of emission-free, low-noise electric drives is considered to be innovative in the field of gas transportation.
An energy plan for Zeebrugge, including a number of energy saving measures, has been approved by the Flemish Energy Agency.
In the UK
At Bacton, the gas turbines that drive the compressors use specially designed Dry Low Emissions technology. This allows the compressors to run at variable load without significantly increasing emissions to the environment.
IUK is investigating ways of minimising the impact of any CO2 emissions arising from our operations.
