Double project transportation to Turkmenistan
29 january 2016
At the end of 2015, APS made its project transportation from Germany to Turkmenistan. One of the most complicated tasks was fulfilled exactly as planned, regardless of severe road conditions and a significant document turnover.
All APS departments paid great attention to this transportation, as the freight was meant for a major international project, particularly, building Turkmenistan-Afghanistan-Pakistan-India (TAPI), one of the biggest gas pipelines of the continent.
TAPI pipeline will allow delivering gas from Turkmenistan, which takes the 4th place in the world in gas reserves, to rapidly developing markets of South and Southeast Asia. The overall TAPI length will amount to 1814 km. 214 meters will be laid along Turkmenistan territory.
Equipment was transported in two stages: twice the fleet of 14 APS trucks simultaneously arrived at the loading and unloading places. Due to the harmonious work of all departments, necessary permits and approvals were obtained exactly on time; the freight was insured, during the whole trip each driver stayed in touch with the manager, operating team and the client, who could track the location and the route of freight movement 24/7.
Just during two weeks 28 cargos were transported, 14 oversized and 14 standard cargos. The route included four transit countries: Poland, Belarus, Russia and Kazakhstan.
Turkmenistan’s President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedow, Afganistan’s President Ashraf Ghani, Pakistan’s Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and Vice-President of India Hamid Ansari attended the solemn ceremony of laying the Turkmenistan’s sector of gas pipeline.
“This project is important not only because it will help us to deliver energy resources. It will help the participants in economic way, will promote peace and sustainable development, and facilitate economic development of the countries involved in it.” – noted Berdimuhamedow.
For APS such projects are the acknowledgement of the level and quality of work, and a high credit, which our client gives us. We thank our client and all the participants of the transportation for the opportunity of joining the project of historic importance.
