VIDEO: Construction of the Bovanenkovo–Ukhta Gas Pipeline
The video shows the megaproject for the construction of the Bovanenkovo-Ukhta gas pipeline. The PRESTORUS products, namely the Standard Geocell PPR GW, was used at several facilities at different stages of construction. Geosynthetics made it possible to provide long-term and highly effective engineering protection for the gas pipeline and minimize emergencies.
PRESTORUS has received an official notice confirming that there were no complaints during operation and maintenance, proving the high quality of the product, its reliability, and durability.
The Bovanenkovo-Ukhta gas pipeline system is one of the largest and most complex construction projects in recent decades. Gas pipelines are designed to transport gas from the Yamal Peninsula to the Unified Gas Supply System of Russia. The gas pipeline route runs through the territory covered with ice for most of the year. The laying of gas pipelines in such harsh natural conditions was carried out for the first time in the world, and innovative equipment and materials of increased reliability were used in the construction.
The customer of the project is PJSC Gazprom, the designer is PJSC VNIPIGAZDOBYCHA. Gazprom Transgaz Ukhta LLC is the Operating Organization.
