French term or phrase: abri poste gaz
In a list of locations for crane installation in a power plant, so not much context. I can't find a nice equivalent for this phrase. I've been thinking along the lines of 'gas substation shelter/ bunker/blockhouse' etc. All appear in some form when I search but I'm not sure which one would be the best one to use. Any suggestions?

Thx

I associate "substation" with electricity.

Thanks for your suggestion. I used the 'enclosure' part together with substation. The source text is not well written so I'm grateful fr all suggestions.
