Former gasworks

GuD was commissioned in early 2007 by Stadtwerke Rostock AG with the planning of the renovation of the former gasworks of the Rostock city center. The remediation target for the use-specific contaminated site was to significantly reduce pollutant emissions from the property via the groundwater path. An essential part of the planning was the review of the measure by means of extensive groundwater modeling.

Both the safety measures taken in the form of a sheet pile wall shielding in connection with the production of an intake drainage along the western boundary of the property and the measures for surface sealing enable the economic reuse of the site of the former gasworks in Rostock.
