Pipe plant manufactures bends for EUGAL pipeline

Some pipes are already stored for the EUGAL. First pipe bends will be delivered in mid-2018.
Pipe storage for EUGAL

With the European gas pipeline link (German: Europäische Gas-Anbindungsleitung - EUGAL), GASCADE Gastransport GmbH (EUGAL project executing company) is adding a new link to the European gas pipeline network, which is a central element in the demand-driven expansion of the European energy hub. Starting from the Baltic Sea, EUGAL will run southwards through three German federal states and onwards to the Czech Republic along a route that is largely parallel to the Baltic Sea pipeline link (OPAL).

The pipe bending plant of Salzgitter Mannesmann Grobblech GmbH will manufacture 673 pipe bends with varying bending angles. The starting pipe for these products is supplied by our partner EUROPIPE, a joint venture of Salzgitter AG and AG der Dillinger Hüttenwerke.

Production at the pipe bending plant will start in February 2018, providing for two-shift capacity utilization until the end of September 2018. The pipe bends will be supplied directly to construction sites along the planned route (Lubmin, Germany – Deutschneudorf, Germany). The first delivery of 300 pipe bends is scheduled for mid-2018.

Further information about the EUGAL project is provided by GASCADE Gastransport GmbH on a special information platform at www.eugal.de.
