Lithuania spends over EUR 4 mln to upgrade gas pipelines
Lithuania's gas transmission system operator (TSO) Amber Grid has signed an agreement with the Lithuanian Business Support Agency (LVPA) to reconstruct above-ground and underground sections of high-pressure trunk gas pipelines in various parts of Lithuania, reported Ceenergynews.com.
The project is worth more than EUR 4 million (USD 4.8 million) half of which will be financed by the EU Structural Funds.
The project, which will be completed by the second half of 2023, involves the reconstruction of nearly 300 metres (984.5 ft) of above-ground sections of main gas pipelines and 3.6 kilometers (2.24 mile) of insufficiently buried gas pipeline sections.
The upgraded sections of the gas pipelines will be equipped with state-of-the-art technologies – innovative corrosion rate sensors will be installed in the gas pipelines to remotely monitor the condition of the gas pipeline. The new technological solutions will make pipeline maintenance more efficient, prolong the life of the infrastructure and ensure the safety of the gas transmission system.
