The Salzgitter Group has received a major order for around 160,000 tonnes of longitudinally welded large pipes and pipe bends for a major pipeline project in Qatar. The order was placed with the international trading subsidiary of Salzgitter AG, Salzgitter Mannesmann International GmbH. In addition to monitoring the supply chain, the company is also responsible for all project coordination and execution steps.
The large pipes are produced by EUROPIPE GmbH, Mulheim, a joint venture between Salzgitter AG and AG der Dillinger Huttenwerke. The pipe bends are manufactured in the Mulheim pipe bending plant of Salzgitter Mannesmann Grobblech GmbH. Production for the pipes and elbows will start in early 2021.
