Baltic Connector Oy selects KROHNE as supplier for CT gas metering system

One of the key components of the Baltic Connector pipeline is the Custody Transfer metering system that measures the amount of supplied gas, as this links directly to the cash registers of buyer and seller of the gas. Baltic Connector Oy selected KROHNE Oil & Gas as supplier for the Custody Transfer flow meter runs for the Finnish compressor and measuring station in Inkoo. With local presence in 100 countries and an impressive global track record, KROHNE is a well-known supplier for process instrumentation, custody transfer flowmeters and fully engineered metering systems.

The metering system consists of three meter runs using KROHNE’s ALTOSONIC V12 ultrasonic gas flowmeter. As it enables installation without flow conditioner while maintaining compliance to standards as OIML R137 and AGA9, pressure drop over the meter runs is limited to an absolute minimum. This contributes to running the compressor station as efficient as possible. Custody transfer flow calculations are done by KROHNE’s SUMMIT 8800 flow computers with full color touchscreen in redundant set-up. SynEnergy Supervisory software is installed on the supervisory computers.

The system is manufactured in KROHNE’s 30.000 m2 production facility in the Netherlands. Onsite commissioning and training will be carried out by KROHNE and its local Finnish partner Tecalemit Flow Oy.

About Baltic Connector Oy: Baltic Connector Oy is a state-owned company set up in 2015 to implement the Finnish part of the Baltic Connector gas pipeline to be built between Finland and Estonia.
