Corinth Pipeworks, a subsidiary of Cenergy Holdings, will construct the steel pipes for the Gas Interconnector Greece-Bulgaria (IGB), a project signed in Sofia on Thursday between Greece and Bulgaria.
The decision was made by ICGB, the joint Greek-Bulgarian company that will plan, build and manage the natural gas pipeline, a project linking Komotini in northern Greece and Stara Zagora in Bulgaria, with projected connections to other pipelines such as the Trans Adriatic Pipeline and the natural gas grid of Greece.
Cenergy Holdings said that Corinth Pipeworks will provide pipes for the nearly 182-km-long pipeline, 31 km of which will lie on Greek territory. The contract will be fulfilled within 12 months, with the first consignment delivered four months after the start of the contract, which is worth a total of 58.2 million euros.
The steel pipes will have a diameter of 32 inches (812 mm) and will be manufactured from 2019 to 2020 at the Thisvi, Boeotia facilities of the company.
