Corinth Pipeworks was awarded two contracts for Società Gasdotti Italia (SGI) pipeline in South of Italy
Brussels, 31 October 2023
Cenergy Holdings announces that Corinth Pipeworks, its steel pipes segment, was awarded two contracts with a value more than EUR 10 million, by Società Gasdotti Italia for the production and supply of approximately 82km of high frequency welding steel pipes (HFW) for the development of the gas pipeline network in the Southern Italy.
The first contract, approx. 12km of DN 350 pipe, concerns the replacement of a section of the Larino-Colleferro gas pipeline, an important line that connects the Adriatic part of the SGI network with the Tyrrhenian part.
The second contract involves the supply of approximately 70km of DN 300 pipe for the construction of a new section of the network, called “Lucera – San Paolo di Civitate”, in the Puglia region. This section of the pipeline will be particularly suitable for the production and injection of biomethane in the network.
For both supplies, the pipeline will be certified to transport up to 100% hydrogen. Corinth Pipeworks uses cutting-edge technologies and infrastructure, providing solutions for hydrogen certification of new pipelines. Therefore, steel pipes produced today and installed in the current gas network shall cover the energy mix of tomorrow.
The steel pipes will be manufactured at Corinth Pipeworks’ facilities and will include three-layer polyethylene external and epoxy internal coating, applied at the same location as the pipe manufacturing, at the Thisvi plant, in Greece.
This award to Corinth Pipeworks is the latest awarded by SGI, with the assistance of its Italian business partner PIPEX ITALIA SPA and builds on the company’s long-term successful relationship and a number of previous pipeline developments.
