TAP hands out construction contracts
Trans Adriatic Pipeline AG (TAP) has awarded two engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contracts including the one for the onshore pipeline in Italy that will connect the project’s offshore section with the Pipeline Receiving Terminal (PRT).
The joint venture comprised of Enereco S.p.a. and Max Streicher S.p.a. has been awarded the contract for the onshore pipeline in Italy (8-kilometre, 36-inch diameter), which will connect the project’s offshore section at the landfall with the PRT.
Renco S.p.a. has been awarded the contract for the Pipeline Receiving Terminal, which is the final element connecting TAP to the Snam Rete Gas network. In addition to receiving natural gas, the PRT will also host the Supervisory Control Centre (SCC).
Ian Bradshaw, Managing Director at TAP, said: “Congratulations to Renco S.p.a. as well as the Enereco S.p.a. and Max Streicher S.p.a. joint venture for their strong bids, which best met our high technical standards and health, safety and environmental criteria. I also want to thank all companies who participated in this rigorous tendering round. In addition to further securing local employment, we hope this appointment will help boost indirect benefits and investment in Italy.”
