Energyglobal, May 05,’16
Trans Adriatic Pipeline AG (TAP) has selected a JV comprising Renco S.p.A (Italy) and Terna S.A. (Greece) for EPC and commissioning of one compressor station at Kipoi, near the Greek-Turkish border in Greece.
In Albania, the award covers the provision of EPC and commissioning of one compressor station at Fier, and one metering station at Billisht. The metering station is designed to measure natural gas coming from the Greek section of TAP.
The construction of the compressor stations is planned to start in the second half of 2016 and it will take approximately two years to complete. The contract for the supply of six gas turbine turbo compressor units to be incorporated into the compressor stations was awarded in September 2015 to Siemens.
