Large diameter HDPE pipes delivered in long lengths are our speciality. We are the only company in the world which is able to supply solid wall HDPE pipes up to 2 500 mm in diameter continuously extruded in lengths up to 500 - 600 m. The long length pipe concept is especially suitable for marine applications, based on towing from our plant directly to the (marine) installation site.
There are many benefits for the marine contractors and investors by using our unique long length pipe concept:
- No or very little welding work is required
- Supply of pipes in lengths of 500-600 metres results in very few joints
- Low transport costs. The tug takes several thousands metres of large diameter pipes in one tow
- Substantial time and cost savings for the marine contractors as normally no land based work site and storage area will be required
- Low installation costs due to short installation time and no need of heavy installation equipment
- Less risk for damages during handling and storage
Satisfied customers all over the world
Based on these qualities and advantages as well as the cost efficiency of the concept, contractors and investors as far as Iceland, UK, France, Portugal, Spain, Croatia, Turkey and even Brazil and Ghana have decided to place their marine pipe orders with Pipelife.
