One German-made high-pressure gas transmission sleeve is 26.5-metre high and weighs 50 tonnes. They underwent a stress test last week and it was determined that they comply with quality and safety requirements.

In June, the work was completed on reinforced concrete structure in the quay, fire protection pipes and fire pumps were delivered, as well as gas containers, diesel generators and other components. In order to accelerate the construction, fifth crane was brought to the sight.

In July work on installing the main equipment in the service platform will commence. It is hoped that the work hydrotechnical units will be completed in August.
