SPS has developed new technology for the mobile construction of pipelines. This forms pipe in the field and directly lays it, avoiding the need to ship pre-formed pipe sections to a pipe dump and manually weld them together.
A patented mechanical interlock holds high strength steel strip into a spiral configuration.
Potential to halve both the total installed cost and environmental impact of pipeline construction.
A group of pipeline operators have agreed to act as critical friends to this technology.
