Budimex, in a consortium with Mostostal Kraków, has completed the construction of a strategic high-pressure gas pipeline in the Podkarpackie Voivodeship. This gas pipeline is an important element of the Poland-Slovakia interconnection. The diameter of the gas pipeline is 1000 mm, its length is 61 km, and the working pressure is 8.4MPa. During the implementation, trenchless technologies such as HDD (horizontal directional drilling) or microtunneling were used. As part of this task, Budimex used 27 thousand tonnes of steel, made 390 km of micropiles to strengthen the area through which the gas pipeline passes, and moved 6,300 m3 of soil.
The route of the gas pipeline runs through the municipalities of Sanok, Bukowsko and Komańcza in the Podkarpackie Voivodeship. The construction of the gas pipeline between Poland and Slovakia is an important element of Gaz-System’s investment strategy due to its strategic importance – the connection of the Polish and Slovak natural gas transmission systems.
