At the yearly Product of the Year Competition, organized by Lithuanian Confederation of Industrialists, MT Group was awarded with two gold medals for the recently executed gas infrastructure projects. This is the fourth time for the company to be recognized in the competition.

The first gold medal was received for the Reconstruction of the main gas pipeline section connecting Vilnius (LT) – Panevezys (LT) – Riga (LV). MT Group has reconstructed a 14 km pipeline section (DN700) in the Lithuanian territory.

This project plays an important role in modernizing gas transmission system in Lithuania and other Baltic countries. Circumstances were demanding – not only because of the corrosion damage that was detected during internal diagnostics, but also for its complexity of various intersections: Rail Baltica line, roads, oil pipeline and natural environment.

The second gold medal winning project is the Construction of the Karksi Gas Metering Station (GMS) and the Lilli valve station near the Estonian-Latvian border.

Project is a part of the Balticconnector cluster, which ensures gas supply between the Finnish, Estonian and Latvian gas networks. After reconstruction, the Karksi Gas Metering Station has been fully automated, remotely controlled, capable of measuring the gas flow between Latvia and Estonia and vice versa.
