Regardless of technical or challenging project requirements, contractors rely on our support from inception through delivery to project completion.

Where can you apply them

We are the first company in the world to supply solid wall, large diameter HDPE pipes, which are continuously extruded in lengths of up to 600 meters, and smaller diameters even up to 2.5 km.

  • Little to no welding work
  • Minimized risk of joint failures
  • Lower transportation costs and less environmental impact
  • Substantial time and cost savings for the contractor (e.g. no land based site and storage area necessary)
  • Lower risk for damages during handling, transport and storage
Benefit from our 25+ years of experience
  • Solid marine application and pipe calculation know-how
  • Deep market knowledge
  • Close partnership with global marine piping consultants and contractors
  • Marine pipe specialists for every main market
  • Engineering and general technical advice and support

Economical, safe and environmentally friendly transportation

Kilometers of HDPE pipes have been economically delivered by tug boat to over 140 different marine sites around the world, including Uruguay, Ghana and even Malaysia. Our pipes are towed from the Pipelife plant in Stathelle, Norway, directly to the (marine) installation site where they are ballasted, submerged and installed. With no transshipment or onshore storage needed, our deliveries are economical, simple and direct.

Our biggest marine project set a world record after we towed more than 3.3 km of long length large diameter (LLLD) HDPE pipe from Stathelle, Norway, to Malaysia, covering an unrivalled distance of 27,720 kilometers.
