General Electric Oil and Gas Division, formerly trading as Nuovo Pignone, placed an order in April 2008 with IAC Stopson Italy for the supply of three off-base, noise-insulated enclosures.

Installation is currently underway on site and due to be completed by next summer.

These enclosures are for the GT25 gas turbine and compressor package, which GE is installing at a gas plant in Korba, 80km south east of Tunis, Tunisia.

The facility is dedicated to the compression of gas for transport via the underwater pipeline that crosses the Mediterranean to southern Europe.

Manufacturing of the frames and fire-rated panels was undertaken in China at IAC’s partner’s facility located close to Shenzen.

Shipment from China to Tunis was a major operation.

A total of 63 40ft containers made the 30-day journey via the Suez Canal and Malta.

Strong support was provided by IAC companies to the local Chinese team throughout the manufacturing process.

Components such as the bridge crane, fire fighting system and ventilation have all been procured from European-based suppliers.
