Trans Adriatic Pipeline (TAP) is inviting companies to pre-qualify for the construction of the Pipeline Receiving Terminal (PRT) and the installation of onshore pipeline in Italy.
The scope of work will cover two lots: the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) of the PRT and the EPC of an approximately 8km long, 36″ diameter pipeline connecting the project’s offshore pipeline at the landfall with the PRT. The PRT will receive natural gas from the pipeline offshore section and host the supervisory and control centre of TAP. The PRT will be integrated into the surrounding landscape and have limited visual impact on the area. The facility will connect to the Snam Rete Gas network.
Following the selection stage, TAP aims to issue the related Invitations to Tender (ITT) for onshore construction in Italy by the end of the second quarter 2015. Knut Steinar Kvindesland, procurement director at TAP said: “With the launch of this pre-qualification notice, TAP is now in the market to secure EPC services for building the pipeline all the way from Kipoi, Greece, through to southern Italy. Our selection process remains transparent, rigorous and with particular an emphasis on meeting Health, Safety and Environment standards as well as a proven commitment to TAP’s zero harm policy.”
