Kassel, 28 April 2023: From 1 May to 13 May, planned maintenance works will be carried out at the Rehden natural gas storage facility. To carry out the works safely, high-pressure systems must be relieved. The natural gas in them will be safely discharged via the flares and flared off. This may result in possible noise disturbances. This work may also be carried out in the evening. We apologise to residents for any inconvenience caused.
