Technicalities and Safety

All of the equipment used in Aygaz Doğal Gaz LNG systems is certified by third-party institutions. Aygaz Doğal Gaz LNG systems are built in compliance with international standards (TS EN 13458) to ensure safety.

The LNG tank area is secured against environmental factors with a wire fence. In view of the possibility that the LNG in the LNG stock tank might be released into the environment, the Aygaz Doğal Gaz LNG systems are installed in a tank pool proportionate to the volume of the tank and the environmental conditions.

The static calculations for the tank’s concrete footings and anchorage systems in Aygaz Doğal Gaz LNG systems are custom designed to comply with earthquake conditions. LNG tanks and equipment are grounded in accordance with standards against fire and lightning.

All of our employees and truck tanker operators receive constant training and certification regarding general transportation rules and safety issues as well as LNG use and operation.

Adequate documentation and informational support is provided not only for Aygaz Doğal Gaz employees but for gas users as well, and during the installation of the LNG facility, applied training describing the system is provided both during activation of the system and afterwards when it is operating.

Warning signs and labels related to potential dangers and the measures to be taken are posted in the LNG tank area.

Dry chemical powder fire extinguishers appropriate for the volume of the tank must be available in the LNG systems.

After the system is activated, all types of information sharing and technical support are available 24 hours a day via both telephone, and if necessary, on-site intervention for problems and needs customers may encounter after the system is brought online. In order to minimize unexpected malfunctions, annual equipment maintenance is performed by Aygaz Doğal Gaz authorized technical services.
