Helsinki, Finland, 6 March 2018: Halton will supply gas-tight fire dampers and gas-tight shut-off dampers for the compressor and measuring stations of the 1,850-kilometre-long Trans Anatolian Natural Gas Pipeline (TANAP), being built across Turkey, the company said in a Press communiqué. Slightly under half of the dampers, made at Halton’s factory in Lahti, Finland, were delivered by the end of November 2017, and the rest will be delivered during 2018, the company further said.

According to Halton, the delivery is the largest-ever for Halton’s Marine business to Turkey and the Caspian Sea region. Sami Piirainen, Director, Halton’s business division, said, “We’re really excited about this significant opening of a door into the market area in question.”

The TANAP shipment includes 2,000 fire and shut-off dampers, which have been designed and manufactured in accordance with the special requirements of the site. The subcontractor to whom Halton is delivering the products is Enefcon Engineering Ltd., a technology provider of HVAC, fire suppressing and sanitary plumbing solutions and related control systems.

Ertaş Erzincan, Project Coordinator, Enefcon, said, “Our high expectations towards our HVAC solution partner in this project included flexibility in many areas, in order to meet the needs of demanding project specifications as well as to manage the overall tight schedule.”

The TANAP project involves the construction of a Natural Gas pipeline, westwards from the Turkish-Georgian border, through 20 Turkish provinces and all the way to the Greek border. The length of the gas pipeline is 1,850 kilometres, and along it there will be seven compressor stations, four measuring stations, 11 pigging stations, 49 block-valve stations and two off-take stations.
