Borusan Mannesmann wins large line pipe tender in Denmark

Turkey’s largest steel pipe producer Borusan Mannesmann has won a Eur13.5 million ($13.8 million) line pipe tender arranged by Denmark’s Evida Service and Energinet Teknik, the company said late July 18.

According to a company statement to the public disclosure platform seen by S&P Global Commodity Insights, the pipes will be used in the transmission of biogas to Denmark’s Lolland and Falster islands.

The pipes will be produced at the Gemlik, Bursa works and shipments will be finalized within 2022, Borusan said, without providing details on the tonnage.

Borusan is increasing its investments in Turkey and abroad and is currently building a pipe service center in Ploiesti, Romania, which will focus on meeting the European automotive sector’s special pipe requirements.

This is the company’s second investment in Europe after Italy, where it is able to produce 28,000 mt/year of cold-drawn special pipe at its Vobarno plant.

The company also has a 300,00 mt/year electric-resistance welded pipe mill in Baytown, Texas, where it is planning to increase the capacity and widen its product range.

In Turkey, Borusan’s mill capacities are 750,000 mt/year of ERW pipes and 300,000 mt/year of spiral pipes.
