The Bulgarian Minister of Energy Andrey Zhivkov paid a visit to the #IGB project's site in the region of Lozengradtsi near the Greek border
The Bulgarian Minister of Energy Andrey Zhivkov paid a visit to the #IGB project's site in the region of Lozengradtsi near the Greek border – one of the most beautiful, yet challenging and complex sections of the gas pipeline’s route. Tough geology, steep mountain slopes, and dense forest areas are just some of the natural #challenges that lie ahead of the #construction crews.
#IGB is progressing well and the design, procurement and construction contract is being implemented according to the approved updated schedule with a deadline for completion in December 2021
#IGB is progressing well and the design, procurement and construction contract is being implemented according to the approved updated schedule with a deadline for completion in December 2021. After the completion of the #construction activities at the end of this year, a number of obligatory procedures and legal commitments will take place before commissioning, which will take between 4 and 6 months.
2015 was a decisive moment for #IGB
“2015 was a decisive moment for #IGB – prior to the final investment decision many people, international institutions and foreign partners didn’t believe such project can happen in Bulgaria and the #interconnector was considered wishful thinking. After 6 years of heading the company, I have to say the #ICGB team overcame numerous challenges and unexpected difficulties so we can be here today and talk about the progress on site and the actual construction works taking place”, ICGB Executive Officer Teodora Georgieva tells 24 Chasa Daily in an interview.
May this #Easter be blessed and peaceful for you and your families!
