Installation of the new pipe linear compensators
Last February, Schuck delivered the last of the 42 new linear compensators to Poland on schedule.
These were initially all delivered to a large storage area where quality control was carried out by the customer, during which each individual linear compensator was checked in detail using a corresponding checklist.
After this inspection had been successfully completed, the installation of the linear compensator in the pipeline in the 168 km long underfloor high-pressure pipeline from Pogórska Wola to Tworzeń began in April.
