In a significant triumph, LIBERTY Pipes Hartlepool has been awarded two contracts by Subsea7 for the Yggdrasil and Valhall PWP-Fenris offshore field development projects in the North Sea.
The company will produce a total of 16.6 kilometers of longitudinally submerged arc welded pipe for these contracts, supplying them to Subsea7's bundle fabrication facility in Scotland. Manufacturing of the pipes will commence soon and continue throughout 2023.
