Engineering Studies for TANAP SCADA System and Crossings under the Dardanelles Strait and Evros River, Funded by the European Commission

As partly funded by the Innovation and Networks Executive Agency (INEA), the “Engineering Studies for TANAP SCADA System and Crossings under the Dardanelles Strait and Evros River” action is currently ongoing.

 

The scope of “Engineering Studies for TANAP SCADA System” includes all compressor stations, metering stations, block valve stations and the central control station. The “Detailed Engineering for the Dardanelles Strait Crossing” includes engineering designs of the two pipelines and fiber optic cables which will cross the Dardanelles Strait on the Sea of Marmara. The “Detailed Engineering for Evros River Crossing” includes the pipeline crossing design of the Evros River, which is located at the border between Turkey and Greece.

 
The key documentations for the SCADA designs have been completed, and the Factory Acceptance Tests for the equipment are currently ongoing.

 
Detailed designs are currently being undertaken by the EPC Contractor, which has made good progress so far. The EPC contractor is getting all required permits for the crossing, and the current plan is to start the construction works by summer 2017.

 
The ground investigation works are currently ongoing for the Evros River Crossing designs. The current plan is to complete all the engineering studies before the end of 2017.

 
The second year report to show progress and success of “Engineering Studies for TANAP SCADA System and Crossings under the Dardanelles Strait and Evros River” action will be presented to INEA by March 31, 2017 via Action Status Report.
