AEI Updates 2016Posted by Adv. Lorenc Gordani, PhD Fri, September 30, 2016 15:31:14



Tirana, Albania. The Trans Adriatic Pipeline (TAP) AG today marked the start of pipeline construction in Albania. The occasion was marked by an inauguration ceremony near the town of Fier, attended by the Prime Minister of Albania, Edi Rama, Minister of Energy and Industry, Damian Gjiknuri, and TAP Managing Director, Ian Bradshaw.

Speaking to an audience that included representatives of the local authorities and other key stakeholders, Prime Minister Rama and Energy Minister Gjiknuri emphasised the importance of the project to Albania. As one of the largest foreign investments in the country, TAP will have a positive impact on the country’s energy sector and will help encourage other foreign investments, they said.

TAP Managing Director Ian Bradshaw said: “I am delighted to be standing here today. TAP has made huge progress over these last few years and the evidence is what you see here today: steel pipes on the ground, heavy machinery in the background, right of way being cleared and trenches dug waiting for pipe to be laid. All this, with many hundreds of thousands of safe hours worked.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Albanian Government, in particular the Ministry of Energy and Industry for its unwavering support of our project and our strong cooperation, which has led to TAP’s realisation and delivery of this project.”

In Albania, TAP’s construction progress to date includes:

  • 23km of Right of Way (RoW) cleared
  • 12km pipe strung
  • 8km of pipe welded
  • 56% of pipes delivered – Line pipes & bends continue to arrive in Durrës (since April 2016)
  • Over 94% of access roads & bridges (combined progress) are complete; approx. 90% of the workforce from Albania

TAP continues to be an active player in Albania, particularly in the regions where the project operates. Social investment projects are planned and executed with the participation and in close cooperation with the local community representatives.
