PAO Severstal, one of the world's largest vertically integrated steel and mining companies, has delivered large diameter pipes (LDP) to Greece for the first time.
Pipes with a diameter of 1016 mm were produced at the Izhora Pipe Plant (ITZ, part of the Severstal Russian Steel division of PJSC Severstal).
Under the contract, LDP was supplied with an external three-layer polyethylene coating according to DIN 30670 and an internal coating according to AWWA C-210. At the request of the client, the Izhora Pipe Plant developed the technology for the first time and applied an internal coating in accordance with the requirements of the AWWA C-210 standard.
The supply of large-diameter pipes to the Izhora Pipe Plant, located at the production site in the Kolpinsky District of St. Petersburg, was carried out to the client by road.
Severstal already has experience in supplying large diameter pipes to Europe, including Bulgaria, Poland, Slovakia, Holland and other countries. One of the key features of order fulfillment for European clients is the delivery of pipes to the doors of the end-user warehouse, with which we successfully cope. We intend to further strengthen our position in the European market by offering our clients various additional types of high quality services, ”said Maxim Starikov, Deputy Director for Energy Companies' Sales to Export Markets.
