AVK assists in the fire protection of vital stations across a vast, international network delivering natural gas to Turkish and European customers
Stakeholders from the Azerbaijani, Italian and Turkish governments are working together with British Petrols (BP) in a project of bringing natural gas from Azerbaijan to Turkey and Europe. The gas will travel through an 1850 km main pipeline system across Turkey. The expected capacity of this massive project is the delivery of 16 billion cubic meters of gas per year – a volume that is anticipated to gradually increase to 31 billion cubic meters annually.
The pipeline has its starting point in the district of Ardahan at the Georgian-Turkish border and runs through 20 Turkish provinces before it reaches the Ipsala district of Edirne at the Turkish-Greek border. From here, the Trans-Adriatic pipeline will join to carry natural gas to European nations. Connection to the natural gas supply network of Turkey is established from off-take stations at Eskişehir and Thrace.
Protecting crucial pipeline stations
More than 10 sections have been tendered in the project and Tekfen Construction and Installation Co., Inc. – an AVK customer - is the contractor for one of these sections. This part of the project covers the compression and metering stations in Turkey, and Tefken has engineered and constructed two compressor stations and four measuring stations over the pipeline. They preferred the AVK fire protection solutions consisting of UL and FM approved dry barrel hydrants, gate valves and post indicators for the protection purposes of the stations, of which we have supplied more than 100 sets.
