The ICT team of the consortium of the Trans Adriatic Pipeline (TAP) is constantly evaluating and deploying new solutions to ensure efficient and secure operations, Vugar Veysalov, TAP Head of External Affairs told Trend.

“TAP is a state-of-the-art pipeline, using modern ICT systems and infrastructure. TAP has been using the Motorola Solutions digital radio system to provide secure voice and data communications along the route of the gas pipeline,” he added.

As the European section of the Southern Gas Corridor, TAP has the capacity to transport approximately 10 billion cubic meters of gas per annum (bcm/a) to several markets in Europe. The pipeline is also designed with the potential to expand its throughput capacity up to 20 bcm/a.

As a key part of the Southern Gas Corridor, TAP is strategically and economically important to Europe and essential in providing reliable access to a new source of natural gas. TAP plays a significant role in boosting Europe’s energy security, supply diversification, as well as decarbonisation objectives.

TAP’s shareholding is comprised of bp (20 percent), SOCAR (20 percent), Snam (20 percent), Fluxys (19 percent), Enagás (16 percent) and Axpo (5 percent).
