General Electric (GE) has secured a multi-million dollar contract to provide advanced turbo machinery for the Trans-Anatolian Natural Gas Pipeline (TANAP), facilitating the transport of natural gas from Azerbaijan via Turkey to European energy markets.
The gas turbines bring high levels of operational efficiency and low emission levels. These critical systems are seen to be the "heart of the pipeline." GE reports that gas turbines will be manufactured and tested at the GE Oil and Gas for shipment to Turkey in 2017.
Rami Qasem, President & CEO, GE Oil & Gas MENAT, said: “We are pleased to be providing technologically advanced GE O&G solutions for the prestigious TANAP project and building partnerships and trust with SOCAR, BOTAŞ and BP. This marks a key milestone for GE Oil & Gas and underlines our long-term commitment to Turkey where GE has been driving several localization initiatives as part of its US$900 million investment announced in 2012 in support of Turkey’s Vision 2023.”
