Trans Adriatic Pipeline AG (TAP) has awarded to Saipem SpA the contract for Engineering, Procurement, Construction and Installation (EPCI) for the offshore section of the project.

TAP’s 36 in. offshore pipeline across the Adriatic Sea – between the coastlines of Albania and southern Italy – will be approximately 105 km in length, down to approximately 820 m below sea level at the deepest.??

The EPCI scope comprises associated civil works at the landfalls in both Albania and Italy (including micro tunnel), offshore pipeline installation, offshore fibre optic cable supply and installation, as well as pre-commissioning and survey activities.

The coated offshore 36in. line pipes, the anodes and the buckle arrestors will be provided by TAP.

Ian Bradshaw, Managing Director at TAP, said: “I want to congratulate Saipem SpA for securing this important assignment and thank all the companies that participated in this tender round.

“While offshore construction raises specific challenges, Saipem SpA’s robust technical bid, strong safety track record and experienced team of specialists reassure us that works will be executed to the highest standards and industry best practice.”??
