Gas pipeline construction for Ostrołęka power plant marks progress

The contractor for the construction of a gas connection to the gas-steam power plant in Ostrołęka, east Poland, has completed the removal of topsoil and pipe transport with almost one-third of the planned pipeline laid and backfilled (20 July).

By mid-July, 8 km of the pipeline have already been laid, welded and filled in. This makes up almost one-third of the total length of the gas pipeline, which is set to be nearly 28 km.

By the end of August, the contractor plans to make further progress, including work related to trench preparation, laying and connecting pipes, and backfilling in the trench. Construction of underground trenchless crossings will also continue, said the project’s developer Polish energy company Energa (part of the ORLEN Group).

The gas pipeline, which will connect the power plant in Ostrołęka with the Poland-Lithuania interconnector, will run through the Podlaskie and Mazowieckie voivodeships.
