Trans Adriatic Pipeline AG (TAP) has awarded the contract for the supply of six gas turbine turbo compressor units to Siemens AG. Half of these items will be installed in TAP’s compressor station near Kipoi, in Greece, and the remaining half at TAP’s compressor station near Fier, in Albania.
Ian Bradshaw, Managing Director at TAP said: “I want to thank all those companies who participated in this tendering round. Following a rigorous evaluation and bidding process, Siemens was selected for their expertise, know-how and robust safety track record in providing highly reliable gas turbine turbo compressor units, which are an integral piece of our pipeline.”
The turbo compressors contract award concludes TAP’s pre-qualification process (launched in June 2014), followed by bid assessments from the shortlisted companies that met TAP’s rigorous pre-qualification criteria.
Siemens AG is one of the world’s largest producers of energy-efficient, resource-saving technologies. In infrastructure and industry solutions the company plays a pioneering role. As of September 30, 2014, Siemens had around 343,000 employees in more than 200 countries.
In April 2015, TAP awarded its first major contract, for the construction of access roads and bridges in Albania. In July 2015, TAP completed the tendering process for the supply of large diameter ball valves and actuators.
