Transporting steel pipes for Europe’s natural gas pipeline
CEVA Logistics has signed a deal with TANAP (Trans Anatolian Natural Gas Project) to manage the logistics operations for the movement of giant pipes. TANAP aims to transport 16.0 billion cubic meters of natural gas from the Caspian Sea in Azerbaijan to Turkey, and to Europe through Turkey at an estimated cost of US$10.0 billion.
CEVA will provide Ground transportation, in addition to Contract Logistics services, for the steel pipes, weighing 1.2 million tons, from Ardahan to Edirne in Turkey, passing through 20 provinces over a distance of 1,850 kilometres. The project is planned over three distinct phases and will be completed in 2018.
Within the scope of the project 135,884 unit 56 inch (1,422 mm) and 48 inch (1,219mm) steel pipes will be required to be transported to key locations along the pipeline: The 56 inch pipes will be shipped between May 2015 and October 2016 and the 48 inch pipes between October 2015 and April 2017.
