FCC Industrial takes full advantage of its components’ individual experience in areas such as liquefed natural gas storage, gas and oil pipeline construc-tion and power plant construction.

division with experience in the sector

vity abroad so as to ensure the sustainabi-lity of the leading construction companies.

Through its Austrian subsidiary, Alpine, FCC has a major presence in several Central Eu-ropean countries where it enjoys a leaders-hip positioning.

kilometers long and will consist of two sec-tions, one 52.4 kilometers long and one 53.4 kilometers long.

These two sections, which together make for a length of 105.8 kilometers, belong to the pipeline section that will cross the Czech Republic from north to south, a 142-kilometre journey, from the OPAL gas pipeline situated south of Germany.

Accordingly, the Gazelle pipeline will be part of what is called the “northern transport route”, which supplies the old world’s na-tural gas from the Russian province of Tyu-men Oblast via the Baltic Sea.
