Amiantit Group companies have received two contract awards in Turkmenistan totalling more than US $ 7 million.
Issued by the state concern Turkmen Oil and Gas Construction, both orders are the result of successful tender bids and are for different parts of the same project, which is the construction of a new sewage network in the East Turkmenistan city of Turkmenabat.
The biggest of the contract awards is worth US $ 6 million and was signed by the Amiantit Caspian Branch on behalf of Amiantit Fiberglass Industries (AFIL). The order is for 31 kilometres of glass reinforced polyester (GRP) pipes and fittings which will be supplied by two Amiantit joint venture companies: SUBOR in Turkey and the Goa-based Amiantit Fiberglass Industries India Pvt. Ltd. (AFIIL).

A second contract award is for the supply and installation of submersible pumps for three sewage pump stations.
