Offshore applications

The manufacture of pipe bends for offshore oil and gas pipelines has long been part of our core business. Depending on the medium being carried we supply pipe bends in special offshore grades up to and including internally clad pipe bends. The tightest possible tolerances both on the pipe bend dimensions and welding edges ensure optimum connections between the pipe bend and straight pipes and for quick pipe-laying.
