Baikonur launched a new petrol station

November 8-9, at the refueling complex Baikonur pad 91A refueling tank is made of high pressure booster "Briz-M" trainee program "Proton/AziaSat-7."

Threading the upper stage was the completion of the commissioning of a new gas station.

Reconstruction of the gas station platform 91A launch site was carried out for several years. There was a major overhaul of the station building, installed new equipment, including up finishing area. Filling station for comic devices is a complex engineering structure, as refuel satellites aggressive components of fuel under high pressure. In this regard, the increased requirements for tightness and corrosion resistance of the plant equipment, filtration system. In the apparatus and equipment widely used digital technology and new materials. Built more than a dozen buildings and facilities catering to the gas station.

In the subsequent filling station platform 91A will operate alongside the existing gas station at the site 31, which will provide a more efficient job training space vehicles.

The gas station was 11G141 for filling with propellant components and compressed gases spacecraft and upper stages 91A is built on the site in 1976. Resource station was set at 10 years and 500 cycles batches. By the mid-80s the plant produced these rules and in 1992 was decommissioned.

Since that time, all refueling spacecraft modules stations and boosters were at a gas station 11G12 31st site.
