Relocation to new business premises
astora GmbH & Co. KG moves to new business premises
Kassel, 1 October 2018. The new headquarters of astora GmbH & Co. KG and its approximately 50 head-office staff has now moved to Königstor 20, a modern office building in the centre of Kassel, Germany.
As part of astora’s relocation, a dispatching unit was created at the company’s new headquarters, which will centrally coordinate the control rooms of the individual underground storage facilities‚ ‘Rehden‘ and ’Jemgum’.
The managing directors Alexey Mochalkin and Arkadius Binia have placed great emphasis on creating an attractive and comfortable working environment for all employees.
Through the joint use of the building of WINGAS GmbH, synergy effects can be achieved, which enable long-term cost reductions. In line with the legal unbundling requirements the astora offices will strictly be separated from the WINGAS offices.
astora GmbH & Co. KG, based in Kassel, is part of the GAZPROM Germania Group and one of the largest natural gas storage operators in Europe. The company maintains one of the largest natural gas storage facilities in Western Europe at Rehden in Northern Germany, which has a working gas volume of about four billion cubic metres. In addition, the storage company also markets capacities in the second largest storage facility in Central Europe, located in Haidach, Austria. In order to secure natural gas supplies to Europe, the company is currently completing the Jemgum natural gas storage facility on the German-Dutch border, which is already operative.
