Manisa Industrial Park has the title of “The First Industrial Park to Provide Natural Gas Service to its Industrialists” in the Aegean Region.
Natural gas has become a fuel that has no alternative today. The construction of the natural gas distribution network and pressure reduction stations in order to provide the natural gas to the industrialists of our Park started with the natural gas infrastructure contract signed in July 2002, and the infrastructure works were completed in a very short time and the first natural gas was used on April 3, 2003.
The natural gas distribution network of our region consists of 9 10,000 Sm³/h pressure reduction stations and a total of 37 km of natural gas lines, 12 km of which are made of steel and 25 km of polyethylene (PE) with intermediate lines. In 2003, our first year, an annual 25 million Sm³ natural gas usage contract was signed with BOTAŞ, and currently natural gas is supplied to 132 companies in Manisa Industrial Park together with the IP Power Plant. Annual consumption amount has reached 300 million Sm³.
In order to operate the natural gas infrastructure, there is a Natural Gas and Mechanical Works Unit consisting of 1 engineer and 6 technicians in our region.
