Construction of a fire water reservoir by Erdgasspeicher Peissen GmbH

In December 2020, Erdgasspeicher Peissen GmbH completed the construction of an underground fire water reservoir in the Gnetsch cavern field. The reservoir with a storage volume of 360m³ water is located north of the district road K2104 and serves to increase the safety in the Gnetsch cavern field.
