Mounted on a chassis, it can be easily relocated to any other location in an emergency, the statement says. 

Additionally, such equipment optimises network operations, detects leaks and enhances data transparency, reliability, efficiency, security and resilience to potential threats.

"This assistance enables OGTSU to take proactive measures to reduce risks and respond promptly to changing needs and emergencies in gas transportation infrastructure," the company added. 

"The support provided by USAID to OGTSU is crucial for the short-term sustainability of OGTSU and is essential for the long-term development of the gas market in Ukraine.

A wide range of IT equipment and solutions provided by USAID will help OGTSU take preventive measures to avoid potential issues, reduce risks and respond quickly to changes in demand and emergencies in gas transportation infrastructure," said the company's CEO, Dmytro Lyppa.

Background: The Gas Transmission System Operator of Ukraine will receive 1,800 protective gabions from Japan, which will be used to physically protect critical infrastructure objects of the gas transmission system in various oblasts of Ukraine, with 320 of them already delivered.
