ChTPZ Group starts working on Transneft’s urgent order

14 August 2014 (13:33)

August 14, 2014. ChTPZ Group is fulfilling an urgent order placed by Transneft; within this order, the Group is to deliver over 22,000,000 kg of large-diameter pipes to the customer for repair and operational needs. Before the end of August, a set of LDPs will be shipped to Transneft, ChTPZ Group’s press officer reports.

The diameters of the LDPs come to 820, 1,020, 1,220, and 1,420mm, wall width comes to 9-17mm; the pipes are made from cold-resistant steel (strength grade K56) and have a three-layer corrosion-resistant outer coating. The customer also asked for the shot-blasting treatment of the inner surface of the pipes to make sure there is no cinder residue left, as this residue can cover up certain surface defects.

The difficulty of this order lies in the fact that the LDPs need to be delivered quickly. Even though the company’s pipe mills are fully loaded, and the production schedule is already complete, ChTPZ Group agreed to fulfill the order and started working on the urgent extra load for its key customer.

‘ChTPZ Group and Transneft have been partners for a long time. Our metallurgical divisions supply this key customer with the entire range of large-diameter pipes. In 2014, ChTPZ Group expects to ship over 215,000,000 kg of LDPs to Transneft for their repair and operational needs and for the construction of Kuyumba-Tayshet pipeline,’ ChTPZ Group reports.
