Large-diameter pipe plantsTube and pipe making
Whenever large amounts of liquids or gases have to be transported over long distances, pipelines are the answer. They supply industry with raw materials and drinking water to cities, and transport energy resources around the world. However, large-diameter pipes also play an important role in other fields. Included here are construction or piling pipes for offshore projects.
