Pipelines supply Leuna with crude oil from fields in Russia. The site’s natural gas grid is connected to the ONTRAS transmission network via two points, thus offering a high level of supply reliability.
Power stations from InfraLeuna supply the power networks operated by InfraLeuna with steam and electric energy of varying pressure stages and voltage levels.
A modern 40 kilometers long road network, 90 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 provides a service which is highly efficient and inexpensive.
InfraLeuna is responsible for the supply and disposal of water.
