TAP launches two pre-qualification contracts

Trans Adriatic Pipeline AG (TAP) has launched two pre-qualification contracts for the construction of the 105 km offshore pipeline section under the Adriatic Sea. The greatest depth the pipeline will be laid is 820 m.

The first pre-qualification comprises Engineering, Procurement, Construction and Installation (EPCI) works for the offshore section of the 36 in. pipeline between the coastlines of Albania and southern Italy. The EPCI scope of work includes associated landfall civil works at the landfalls in both Albania and Italy, as well as survey, seabed and pre-commissioning activities.

The second pre-qualification process is for supply of offshore line pipes and coating. The scope of work is divided into three lots.

Specific details of the contract notices can be found in the Supplement of Official Journal of the EU – Tenders Electronic Daily (TED).

Knut Steinar Kvindesland, Procurement Director at TAP said: “I am delighted to invite companies – including those from TAP’s host countries – to submit expressions of interest in line with the pre-qualification documentation now available on TED. The selection of potential suppliers will remain rigorous, with particular emphasis on meeting Health, Safety and Environment standards and a proven commitment to TAP’s zero harm policy.”

Following the selection stage, TAP aims to issue the related Invitations to Tender (ITT) for offshore construction by May 2015.
