“With this appointment, TAP has completed the award of all major strategic contracts for pipeline construction,” Ian Bradshaw, Managing Director at TAP, said. “I want to congratulate Honeywell for its successful bid and thank all the companies who participated in this tender round. The SCADA telecommunications and security system is a key piece of equipment which will ensure safe and effective pipeline operations.”
