Stalprofil has won an order as part of a consortium with Izostal to supply internally-coated DN 1,000 pipe to Gaz-System for construction of two pipelines in Poland.
The PLN 144 million ($35.5m) contract will ensure supply of pipe for sections of the Lwowek-Odolanow and Zdzieszowice-Kedzierzyn pipelines, which have a combined length of 66km. Delivery of the pipe will be carried out over twelve months starting 1 July 2017.
The Lwowek-Odolanow pipeline will be 168km long when completed by end-2018. It will improve Poland’s energy security and will form an important part of the North-South gas corridor.
Last December Stalprofil and Izostal won an order to supply pipe to Gaz-System for construction of a 60km section of the Zdzieszowice-Wroclaw DN 1,000 pipeline (see Kallanish 29 December).
Last September Stalrprofil said that, despite huge plans by Gaz-System to invest into new pipelines, these projects have not yet broken ground, resulting in a difficult 2016 for firms specialising in pipeline construction (see Kallanish 17 September). These projects are, however, expected to accelerate in 2017.
