The executive directors of the ICGB project company from Bulgaria and Greece, Teodora Georgieva and Konstantinos Karayanakos, made an on-spot inspection of the construction of the gas interconnector between Greece and Bulgaria. 

The Greece-Bulgaria interconnector has a planned gas transmission capacity of 3 billion cubic metres per year with the option to reach 5 billion cubic metres. The total length of the route is 182 km, as 150 km are on the territory of Bulgaria. Nearly 110 km of the terrain have already been cleared and the route has been prepared. More than 100 km of linear laying pipes have been delivered. All teams work actively. 
There has been significant progress despite complications from the coronavirus epidemic, the directors said.
