Branch stations are stations in pipelines that serve as "branches" of the pipeline systems to the customers. Thus they are also called receiving station or tapping station.
Augel realises the complete construction of branch stations with all associated units:
- Station building
- Pig traps
- Ball magazines and ball locks for product separation
- Stage technology for safe access to the plant
- Branch valve
- Access roads, fencing and enclosures
The servicing and maintenance work of the branch stations is also performed by specially trained Augel assemblies.
