GALA completes TAP scope

German Albanian Logistics Agency (GALA) has unloaded and stored 2,800 tons (2,540 tonnes) of sheet piles for the Trans Adriatic Pipeline (TAP).

The last tow of dredging equipment into the port of Durres.

Since September 2018, GALA, part of the EMS-Fehn Group (EFG), has supported the companies that have been preparing the section of the TAP in Albania.

GALA has been involved in the TAP project since 2012, when the company acted as agent and service contractor. Prior and during the construction of the 215 km pipeline from the Albanian-Greek border, GALA served as agent for the vessels, which brought the pipe sections from Germany to the Albanian port of Durres.

Terminal operator EMS APO, GALA’s sister company, was the receiving port for the pipes and acted as a hub for the services for the offshore works.

The pipeline will pass through a 25 km-long Italian section of the Adriatic Sea. Here, Italian Shipping & Logistics Agency (ISLA), also part of EFG, will assume responsibility as service supplier.
