As a leading producer of long length HDPE (marine) pipes, we draw on more than 25 years of experience in design, production, delivery and installation, to provide safe and durable piping solutions to global submarine projects. Regardless of technical or challenging project requirements, contractors rely on our support from inception through delivery to project completion.
Where can you apply them
We are the first company in the world to supply solid wall, large diameter HDPE pipes, which are continuously extruded in lengths of up to 600 meters, and smaller diameters even longer by inquiry.
Certified and tested to national as well as international safety and quality standards, our piping solutions are ideal for onshore, nearshore and offshore projects, serving mainly but not exclusively:
water and wastewater applications
transmission line protection (e.g. offshore wind farms)
Benefits of using long length HDPE Pipes
Little to no welding work
Minimized risk of joint failures
Lower transportation costs and less environmental impact
Substantial time and cost savings for the contractor (e.g. no land based site and storage area necessary)
Lower risk for damages during handling, transport and storage
Benefit from our 25+ years of experience
Solid marine application and pipe calculation know-how
Deep market knowledge
Close partnership with global marine piping consultants and contractors
Marine pipe specialists for every main market
Engineering and general technical advice and support
Economical, safe and environmentally friendly transportation
Kilometers of HDPE pipes have been economically delivered by tug boat to over 140 different marine sites around the world, including Uruguay, Ghana and even Malaysia. Our pipes are towed from the Pipelife plant in Stathelle, Norway, directly to the (marine) installation site where they are ballasted, submerged and installed. With no transshipment or onshore storage needed, our deliveries are economical, simple and direct.
Our biggest marine project set a world record after we towed more than 3.3 km of long length large diameter (LLLD) HDPE pipe from Stathelle, Norway, to Malaysia, covering an unrivalled distance of 27,720 kilometers.
