Trans Adriatic Pipeline Prequalifies Vendors

Will solicit bids for six turbo compressors


Published:

Trans Adriatic Pipeline (TAP) is seeking companies to supply and install six gas turbine compressors for the 540 mile (870 km) pipeline it plans to build across Greece, Albania, and the Adriatic Sea to southern Italy.

Six turbo compressors will be purchased: three for a compressor station near Fier, Albania, and three for a station near Kipoi, Greece.

The contracts will include manufacturing, delivery, engineering, installation and pre-commissioning of the turbo compressors. The potential suppliers must demonstrate that their equipment technology has been used successfully on similar compressor stations.

Earlier, TAP began to prequalify companies for the engineering, procurement and construction of the two compressor stations, plus a flow metering station near Bilisht, Albania.

TAP will transport gas from the giant Shah Deniz II field in Azerbaijan, connecting with the Trans Anatolian Pipeline near the Turkish-Greek border at Kipoi. First deliveries to Europe are expected in late 2019. TAPS owners are BP (20%), SOCAR (20%), Statoil (20%), Fluxys (16%), Total (10%), E.ON (9%) and Axpo (5%).
