14 July 2017 (13:05)

UrBC, Yekaterinburg, July 14, 2017. ChTPZ Group supplied its first 1,980,000 kg of large-diameter pipes with concrete coating to the construction site of Nord Stream 2 Pipeline, the Group’s press service reports.

The shipment comprises pipes (diameter: 1,153 mm; layer thickness: 30.9 mm) made at Chelyabinsk Pipe Rolling Plant’s Vysota 239 Department. The outer concrete coating was provided by Pipeline Coating & Technologies (Concpipe).

‘The shipping-off ceremony took place in Volzhsky and was attended by representatives of the project shareholder Gazprom, Nord Stream 2 Director Henning Kothe, Governor of Volgograd Region Andrei Bocharov, and the Group’s and TPT’s top mangers. The first batch of concrete-coated LDPs for Nord Stream 2 will be delivered to Hanko, Finland, by rail and handed over to customer as soon as this month,’ the press service says.

‘The Group plans to supply some 630 km of large-diameter pipes to Nord Stream 2 before the end of the third quarter of 2018. Some of these pipes are the ones that will be used on the bottom of the Baltic Sea; they will get a layer of concrete coating here in Russia to make sure the pipeline can perform reliably underwater,’ says ChTPZ Group’s pipe-manufacturing division’s director Alexander Grubman.
