Trans Adriatic Pipeline AG (TAP) has selected a joint venture formed by Gener 2 Sh.p.K and Sicilsaldo S.p.A. for the construction and rehabilitation of access roads and bridges in Albania. The decision concludes TAPís pre-qualification process (launched in April 2014), followed by bid assessments from the shortlisted companies that met TAPís rigorous pre-qualification criteria. The building of Albanian access roads and bridges is a crucial step in TAPís preparations for pipeline construction, to begin in 2016.

The scope of work for the contract covers:

∑Construction and rehabilitation of over 100 kilometres of road along the pipelineís route: in Vishocice, Trestenik, Vithkuq and Shtyllas in the Korca region, Corovode, Kakruke as well as in the surroundings of Potom in the Berati region and Seman and Topoje in the Fier region.

∑Construction of two new bridges and rehabilitation of approximately 50 existing bridges in the regions of Korce, Berat and Fier.

Works are expected to begin in the second quarter of 2015.

Leading the joint venture is Gener 2 Sh.p.K, an Albanian construction and development company with almost 20 years of relevant experience. The company has executed numerous projects, including engineering and design, management, coordination, and supervision of various privately owned and government funded construction and development activities.

Sicilsaldo S.p.A. is an Italian company specialised in engineering, procurement and construction services in the oil and gas as well as in the power sector. The services they provide range from design and construction to maintenance of plant and pipelines.

Ian Bradshaw, Managing Director of TAP, commented: ďTodayís announcement is an important step for TAPís execution phase, as it will allow for pipe-laying to begin in 2016. I want to express our gratitude to all those who participated in this process and congratulate the winning joint venture company on their success.Ē

Bradshaw added that ďI would also like to reinforce that TAP remains committed to acting as a responsible corporate citizen. In addition to our community investment programme in Albania, the access roads and bridges will be left behind for the benefit of the local communities for decades to come."
