Partly funded by the Innovation and Networks Executive Agency (INEA), engineering studies for TANAP’s SCADA system and crossings under the Dardanelle Strait and Evros River are currently ongoing.

With regards to the SCADA system, the scope of this funding includes all compressor stations, metering stations, block valve stations and the central control station. Meanwhile, for detailed engineering of the Dardanelle Strait crossing includes engineering designs of the two pipelines and fibre optic cables, which will cross the Dardanelle Strait within the Sea of Marmara. Detailed engineering for Evros River crossing includes the crossing design of the Evros River, which is located at the border between Turkey and Greece.

Key documentations for the SCADA system designs have been completed and factory acceptance tests for the equipment are currently underway.

Detailed designs for the Dardanelle Strait crossing are currently being undertaken by the EPC contractor and good progress has been made so far. The contractor is getting all of the required permits for the crossing and the current plan is to commence construction work by summer 2017.

Ground investigation works is currently being undertaken for the Evros River crossing designs. The current plan for this is to complete all of the engineering studies before the end of 2017.

A second year report that will outline the progress and successes of the engineering studies for TANAP will be presented to INEA by 31 March.
