Experts in gas infrastructure

SPIE to showcase at the gat Cologne 2017 trade fair


Cologne, November 14th, 2017 – The most important German industrial trade fair for the gas industry is gat, the annual conference for the gas industry. SPIE is showcasing its service portfolio for gas infrastructure at the accompanying trade fair from 28 to 30 November in Cologne. The focus is on plant engineering, pipeline construction and services relating to digitalisation and maintenance. With its broad range of multi-technical services from a single source, SPIE Deutschland & Zentraleuropa is an important partner for the energy transition.

At gat, key topics will also be energy policy and technical issues. The utilities industry is currently faced with the challenge of redefining the role and, therefore, the future of natural gas infrastructure. The focus is on issues such as automation, data analysis, gas quality measurement and influence. Sector coupling, combining individual energy and consumption sectors, will be essential for future energy systems. As an independent European market leader for multi-technical services in the areas of energy and communications, SPIE Deutschland & Zentraleuropa supports development. “A key feature is the broad range of services offered. As a result, we deliver solutions for innovative energy supply concepts from a single source”, says Markus Holzke, Managing Director of SPIE Deutschland & Zentraleuropa.

A skilled partner for the energy supply of the future

Germany’s natural gas network is 510,000 km long, which is the equivalent of going around the world 12.5 times. As a leading service provider of plants and systems for generating, transferring and distributing energy and data, SPIE manages a large portion of this on behalf of more than 400 energy supply companies. The customer base ranges from large transport system operator to regional distribution grid operators, municipal works to industrial companies and public clients. SPIE also has a firm grasp of high, medium and low pressure and plans, constructs and maintains large gas transfer stations and house connections. “We are an expert partner in connecting grids and in topics such as Power2Gas/Power2Heat”, says Ralf Tröger, Head of Pipeline Construction at SPIE. Another advantage in achieving an optimum energy transition is local presence: SPIE Deutschland & Zentraleuropa has over 200 locations across Germany.

Apprentice competitive exhibition

Apprentices at SPIE will demonstrate their abilities at gat 2017. They will be competing in the German championship of gas supply technology. With the competition, the German Association for Gas and Water e.V. (DVGW), which organises gat, shows how modern materials, cross-divisional knowledge and teamwork is used in line construction.

SPIE will be showcasing its work with interesting exhibits at gat in Hall 7, Stand B-029.
