TDC International AG (“TDCI”) is pleased to announce the successful collaboration with GASCADE Gastransport GmbH, which operates one of the largest natural gas infrastructures in Germany, on certain trenchless sections of the EUGAL project. The new European Gas Pipeline Link (EUGAL), expected to start flowing at the end of 2019, will receive natural gas from the planned Nord Stream 2 and is intended to strengthen the supply of natural gas to Germany and Europe. GASCADE Gastransport GmbH is responsible for the construction of EUGAL and its future operation and holds 50.5% shares. The other shareholders consist of Fluxys Deutschland GmbH (16.5%), Gasunie Deutschland Transport Services GmbH (16.5%), and ONTRAS Gastransport GmbH (16.5%).
TDCI was contracted by GASCADE to coat 376 pipes (almost 7km) of DN 1400 for certain trenchless installation sections of the pipeline, with a customized pau wrap® GRP-coating specified by GASCADE. 270 of these pipes were additionally equipped with pau wrap® GRP-spacers for installation in micro-tunnels.
More information on TDCI’s participation on EUGAL will be posted shortly.
