Atmos Wave Flow has passed the factory acceptance test (FAT)for the Ceyhan to Kırıkkale Pipeline project. Atmos Wave Flow provides leak detection using both negative pressure wave and independent volume/mass balance method using flow meters. Atmos Wave Flow was selected for the project due to the performance requirements for small leaks to be accurately located.

The pipeline includes two pumping stations, pig stations, and a distribution terminal.
