Pražská plynárenská Distribution has had a successful year | PRAGUE | News
Extraordinary inspections, repairs, solutions to accidents and construction. Pražská plynárenská Distribuce has had another successful year behind it, full of demanding construction challenges for the renewal of gas pipelines in Prague. This year’s construction season alone earned the company nearly 800 million crowns. And she managed them perfectly.
That was in February. At that time, due to the restoration of the gas pipeline, the passage of Jan Želivského Street in Prague 3 was restricted. Because the Prague Gas Distribution thinks of the people of Prague, in connection with the planned closure of the Barrandovské Bridge, the company carried out an advance inspection and repair of the gas pipelines on all routes that were considered as detours in at the time of the closure of the Barrandovský bridge. Together, the company contributed to mitigating the impact on traffic.
And preparation for the so-called green future is partly related to this. Pražská plynárenská Distribuce operates 4.5 thousand km of networks. Seventy percent of them have already been replaced by the original steel pipelines with more modern POLY-ETHYLENE.
The remaining 30 percent of the steel mesh could be replaced by POLY-ETHYLENE-LINE pipes within about 12 years.
A more intense smell should then help to detect even a small natural gas leak. In the event of such a discovery, people should contact the non-stop emergency service on the phone number 1239.
