TAP issues contract notice for supply and installation
This week TAP has issued its fourth contract notice in the Official Journal of the EU – the EU Gazette: Link to the announcement for the supply and installation of ~ 15 MW range gas turbine turbo compressors.
Six turbo compressors will be purchased for installation on two compressor stations – three for a compressor station in Albania near Fier, and three for a compressor station in Greece near Kipoi.
Companies interested in being pre-qualified for this contract need to request a pre-qualification questionnaire from TAP no later than 14.07.2014. This request can be sent to TAP via email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The scope of this Supply Contract will include manufacturing, delivery, engineering, installation and pre-commissioning of the turbo compressors. The potential suppliers need to demonstrate that their equipment is “proven technology”, which has been successfully used on compressor stations similar to TAP’s.
The compressor stations will be built in accordance with the international industry standards on health and safety, located at a significant distance away from highly populated areas, causing minimum impact on the environment and local communities. TAP has developed a set of measures to mitigate any impacts as described in its Environmental and Social Impact Assessments (ESIA in Albania and ESIA in Greece).
The current pre-qualification is the fourth one, following contract notices on construction of Albanian roads and bridges, onshore pipeline construction in Greece and Albania, construction of compressor stations in Greece and Albania.

The next contract notices to be issued by TAP over the next three months will include the pre-qualification of companies supplying Large Diameter Valves and steel line pipes for onshore section of TAP.

About the Trans Adriatic Pipeline (TAP)
TAP will transport natural gas from the giant Shah Deniz II field in Azerbaijan to Europe. The approximately 870 km long pipeline will connect with the Trans Anatolian Pipeline (TANAP) near the Turkish-Greek border at Kipoi, cross Greece and Albania and the Adriatic Sea, before coming ashore in Southern Italy.
TAP will promote the economic development and job creation along the pipeline route; it will be a major source of foreign direct investment and it is not dependent on grants or subsidies. With first gas sales to Georgia and Turkey targeted for late 2018, first deliveries to Europe will follow approximately a year later.
TAP’s shareholding is comprised of BP (20%), SOCAR (20%), Statoil (20%), Fluxys (16%), Total (10%), E.ON (9%) and Axpo (5%).
