HSAW Spiral Welded Pipe Plant for ALFAPIPE Ghardaia/ Algeria in Full Operation
This is the first of two spiral pipe mills which were ordered at Danieli W+K
Alfapipe’s new 80” line for spiral welded pipes installed at their Ghardaia plant passed all performance tests in terms of productivity and quality and is now in full operation.
The line has been specifically designed to process high wall thickness pipes up to 25.4 mm.
Performance tests were carried out with pipe OD 42” x WT 20.6 in X70 M PSL2 material grade according to API 5L standard, suitable for gas & oil transfer systems. This is the thickest welded pipe ever produced in Algeria.
Currently, Alfapipe has started production of this type of pipe for one of their main customers.
The erection activities of the second Danieli W+K spiral pipe mill for Alfapipe’s Annaba site are scheduled to start during the first half of 2018.
