TAP Awards Three Pipeline Equipment Contracts
Companies Selected as the Successful Tenderers
Oct. 16, 2015 + + + Trans Adriatic Pipeline AG (TAP)
has awarded three contracts for the engineering, manufacturing and
delivery of 48” and 36” fittings, isolating joints and scraper traps. This
equipment will perform various key functions, and will be installed along
the TAP route, in line with the project technical specification.
Industria Meccanica Bassi S.p.A has been awarded two contracts: first, for
engineering, manufacturing and delivery of 48” and 36” piggable T-pieces
and welded elbows of different characteristics and, second, scraper traps
units for intelligent pigging. Piggable T-pieces will enable the
connection with the block valve and compressor stations while scraper
traps will facilitate the cleaning and control of the pipeline.
Nuova Giungas s.r.l. is the successful tenderer for engineering,
manufacturing and delivery of 48” and 36” isolating joints. These will
isolate different cathodic protection systems that avoid corrosion.
Ian Bradshaw, Managing Director at TAP, said: “I want to congratulate
Industria Meccanica Bassi and Nuova Giungas for their very robust
technical offers, know-how and safety track record. Also, I would like to
thank all the companies who participated in these rigorous tendering
“In line with our procurement schedule, TAP will award
several large contracts by the end of the year, including line pipes as
well as onshore and offshore engineering, procurement and construction.
This will enable pipeline construction to begin in Greece, Albania and
Italy in 2016 as planned,” Bradshaw added.
The award of contracts
for engineering, manufacturing and delivery of fittings, isolating joints
and scraper traps concludes TAP’s pre-qualification process (launched in
May 2015), followed by bid assessments from the shortlisted companies that
met TAP’s rigorous pre-qualification criteria.
This year TAP has
awarded several contracts: construction and rehabilitation of access roads
and bridges in Albania (April 2015), large diameter ball valves and
actuators (July 2015), and turbo compressors (September 2015).
