Latest information on Steffel.
Steffel involved in the ZEELINK project
ZEELINK is the largest single project in the National Development Plan Gas 2015 (NEP) of the Federal Network Agency. The gas pipeline connects to the LNG terminal in Zeebrugge and thus contributes to route and source diversification to supply Germany with natural gas. Steffel KKS GmbH, in cooperation with KORUPP GmbH, provides for the extensive project the necessary capacity. In addition to the supply of protective current devices for CP, the assessment of coating quality and measurements during construction, measures to reduce the interference of high voltage from nearby OHL are an essential part of the scope of works.

Successful commissioning at the Nord Stream 2
The Steffel KKS CP systems and protective measures on the Nord Stream 2 pipeline were successfully commissioned at the end of October. The entire underground areas of the German landfall facilities will be protected up to the pig receiving station in Lubmin for both pipelines. The station in Lubmin acts as a logistical link between the Nord Stream 2 pipeline and the European pipeline network.

Future Day – Visiting Steffel for a closer look.
Schoolchildren had an interesting day at Steffel’s headquarters in Lachendorf this year with a little theory and a lot of practical application. There was plenty to do and discover: both in electrical occupations and also in our departments dealing with IT and high-voltage interference. Many thanks go to the boys and girls who were so curious and showed so much interest in cathodic protection. We’re looking forward to the next group of children coming through in 2020.
Steffel’s participation in the 37th Celle Wasa Run has a tradition.
Several employees who are also keen runners again took part in this popular fun-run held in the beautiful city of Celle on the edge of the Lüneburger Heath. The inclement weather didn’t stop those participating in the various disciplines from running or walking the distances required. With around 8,500 entrants, the Celle Wasa Run has now become one of the biggest fun-runs in Germany.
Things are progressing rapidly with the PIAMO project.
Steffel is substantially involved in the PIAMO project, and there is good news to report on its progress. The joint project undertaken by Steffel and Mannesmann Line Pipe called PIAMO (Pipeline Attack Monitoring) serves to reliably analyze CP and acoustic signals so that damage to pipelines can be detected early. Steffel is developing a software module for this purpose that will be integrated into the new generation of ISM2010 CP station modules. The good news is that three quarters of the development work has now been completed.

Info-Event on remote monitoring.
An interesting informational event on remote control technology for CP was held in the vicinity of Steffel’s Wildau location near Berlin on the 14thand 15thof November, 2018 at the “Seehotel Zeuthen” hotel. The event’s focus centered around the changes to the DVGW’s technical regulation, GW10. All in all, the attendees learned a lot; ranging from the theoretical principles all the way to examples of practical applications.
Steffel again takes part in “Rowing for Cancer”.
Being active is twice as much fun if you can get involved in a sporting event for a good cause. Steffel has once again participated in “Rowing for Cancer”, which took place on the 25thof August on the Aller River in Celle. And with great success, by the way; our boat placed first in the men’s open category! A good example of the kind of exemplary team spirit that Steffel strives for in all its projects.
