The Romanian branch of the Habau Hoch und Tiefbaugesellschaft, led by Karl Leidenfrost, has signed on July 13, 2021, as a builder and association leader, with Transgaz the contract for the construction of the project ‘Natural gas transmission pipeline in the direction of Sighetu Marmatiei – Viseu de Sus – Borsa’, a project of national importance in the field of natural gas. They will be joined by another local company, Antrepriza Montaj Instalatii (AMI) SA Baia Mare. Moreover, the project is financed from Transgaz’s own funds.

The gas pipeline is designed and constructed to supply natural gas to the local administrative units. It will have a length of 88 kilometres, with an execution period of 18 months, starting August 2021.

At the end of the execution, it will be possible to provide natural gas to the localities in the area of interest of the objective, respectively a number of approximately 51,500 household consumers, 500 public institutions and approximately 2000 economic agents.


Habau Romania is a construction company that is specialized in executing pipeline construction projects and EPCC projects focused on the oil and gas industry, and it has been on the Romanian market for over 20 years. During this time, it has worked with various local and international companies such as Transgaz, OMV Petrom, NAMR (National Agency for Mineral Resources), Government of the Republic of Moldova and many others.
