Digger Blogger | 13:00, Tue July 18 2017

Fifty-two Doosan excavators are a year into the project of burying 360km of the Trans Adriatic Pipeline in Greece.

In March 2016 a joint venture of Italian pipeline contractor Bonatti and Greece’s J&P Avax was awarded the engineering- procurement-construction (EPC) contract for this section of the Trans Adriatic Pipeline  project.  Following a competitive analysis of eight leading excavator manufacturers, Bonatti-J&P Avax bought 52 Doosan crawler excavators, from 30 to 55 tonne class, for the excavation work and for the laying of the 1200mm (48 inch) diameter pipes in the project.

The €4.5bn Trans Adriatic Pipeline (TAP) is the European leg of the Southern Gas Corridor, which aims to connect European markets to new gas sources in the Caspian basin. TAP will cross Greece and Albania from the Greece-Turkey border to the province of Lecce in Italy. TAP facilitates the transport of natural gas from the Caspian Sea in Azerbaijan to western European, including the UK.

How Plantworx went down: exhibitors and visitors respond

Digger Blogger | 11:37, Tue June 20 2017
