Pipelines supply Leuna with crude oil from fields in Russia. Natural gas is obtained by InfraLeuna from the Verbundnetz Gas.
Power stations from InfraLeuna Energiegesellschaft mbH and enviaM supply the power networks operated by InfraLeuna with steam and electric energy of varying pressure stages and voltage levels. InfraLeuna is responsible for the supply and disposal of water.
A modern 25 kilometers long road network, 75 kilometers of internal tracks and 600 kilometers of pipelines which connect the companies which have settled here guarantee fast movements within the chemical area.
The infrastructure and service concept provides chemical companies with numerous advantages due to the concentration on main tasks, thus reducing costs. The pronounced industrial service structure (for example, BIS Industrietechnik Ost GmbH, WISAG Produktionsservice GmbH, BHR HOCHDRUCK-ROHRLEITUNGSBAU GmbH and numerous medium-sized enterprises are settled at the site) provides a service which is highly efficient and inexpensive.
