Trans-Anatolian Natural Gas Pipeline

Operation, control and telecommunication systems for the TANAP pipeline transporting gas from Azerbaijan into Europe Securing the natural gas needs of Turkey and Europe

Over the last 15 years, ABB delivered control and electrical solutions to the BTC and SCP pipelines in Turkey and the Caucasus, the Sangachal terminal and seven offshore platforms in the Caspian Sea. When TANAP is complete more than 4,500 km of pipeline in the region – supplying more than 5 percent of Europe’s gas – will be controlled by System 800xA.

“Technology innovation and leadership is a cornerstone of ABB’s Next Level strategy. ABB’s leading System 800xA software and integrated telecoms solution will allow TANAP to safely and reliably operate the pipeline across vast distances from multiple locations,” said Peter Terwiesch, President of ABB’s Process Automation Division.

ABB will deliver the telecommunications, security and control infrastructure to contribute to safe, secure and reliable operation of the pipeline throughout its lifetime.

The TANAP pipeline is the largest diameter, and with 1,850 km length the longest pipeline ever built in Turkey crossing 20 districts and will bring Azerbaijan’s natural gas through Georgia, Turkey and Greece directly to Europe. The $11 billion TANAP pipeline will interconnect with the South Caucasus Pipeline (SCPx) at Turkey’s border with Georgia and the Trans Adriatic (TAP) at its border with Greece.

It will include seven compressor stations, four measuring stations, 11 pigging stations, 49 block valve stations and two off-take stations.

The challenges of the project will be a tight project schedule, extreme climate changes and several of geographical nature. For instance the pipeline will have to cross many natural and human-made obstacles, including mountains with steep slopes, marshes, roads, railways, existing pipelines and the congested Dardanelle Straits.

Scope of Supply:
(including the system design, delivery and commissioning)

- SCADA (System 800xA)
- Telecommunications Sub-systems: WAN/LAN, CCTV, towers, VSAT, PAGA, radio systems, weather observation system
- Pipeline monitoring system including fence intrusion detection system (FIDS), buried intrusion detection system (BIDS), pipeline intrusion detection system (PIDS) & leak detection system (LDS)
- Fibre optic cable network including ducting
- Main control centre and back-up control centre buildings
- 57 off local equipment rooms (LERs)
- Operator training simulator (OTS)

TANAP is a special-purpose company with SOCAR of Azerbaijan, BOTAS of Turkey and BP as shareholders.

The project will be executed from the ABB Main Execution Centre in St Neots UK and a new TANAP project office located in Ankara.
