A consortium consisting of Porr S.A. and Denys NV has been hired by Gaz-System S.A. to build the high-pressure gas pipeline Tworóg-Tworzeń. The pipeline is already the second project that Porr is building for the Polish gas transport operator. The new pipeline aims to improve the transport of natural gas in the Voivodeship of Opole and the Silesia region. The tender is worth around EUR 68m (PLN 290m).
“This new order represents the fourth tender acquired by Porr in the energy supply sector in Poland,” says Karl-Heinz Strauss, CEO of Porr AG. “We have already managed to prove our extensive expertise in this sector of infrastructure construction multiple times over on our home market. There is a boom currently underway in road construction in Poland; what’s more, it’s important for us to be present in the infrastructure sector as well as in residential, office and industrial construction”.
The new gas pipeline will have a diameter of one metre and pressure of 8.4 MPa and will run alongside an existing pipeline across a length of 55.2 km. The construction will take 26 months. The Tworóg-Tworzeń pipeline is part of the North-South gas corridor from Świnoujście to Croatia. The construction is co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund as part of the operational programme “Infrastructure and Environment”.
