Is current pipeline construction technology sustainable?

Pipe sections are typically formed in a pipemill, coated elsewhere, shipped to pipe dumps and welded together in a labour intensive construction process.

SPS continuous mobile production

Our patented spiral wound pipe enables continuous pipeline manufacture and installation in one operation.

The benefits

Potential to halve total installed cost of pipelines, more than halve environmental impact and improve security of supply.

Mobile automated pipeline construction – A technology breakthrough

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.

 

  • Technology

    A patented mechanical interlock holds high strength steel strip into a spiral configuration.

  • Cost Benefit

    Potential to halve both the total installed cost and environmental impact of pipeline construction.

  • Critical Friends

    A group of pipeline operators have agreed to act as critical friends to this technology.
