GE, MAN Turbo seek to upgrade Ukraine gas pipelines
Tenders are to be held no earlier than 2010
General Electric Co. and MAN Turbo AG are seeking to help upgrade Ukraine’s gas pipeline network, Delo reported, without citing anyone, according to Bloomberg.
Ukrtransgaz, the state-run pipeline operator, wants Ukrainian companies to overhaul the system as foreign equipment is 50 percent more expensive than that used by Ukrainians, the Kyiv-based newspaper said, citing pipeline operation manager Volodymyr Solyanyk.
Tenders to modernize the pipeline system are to be held no earlier than 2010, Delo reported.
