Alfapipe Ghardaia HSAW welded pipe plant in full operation

This is the first of two lines ordered by the Algerian producer to Danieli

Alfapipe 80” line for spiral welded pipes installed in Ghardaia plant passed all performance tests in terms of productivity and quality and is now in full operation.

The line has been specifically designed to process high wall thickness pipes up to 25.4 mm.

Performance tests were carried out with the pipe OD 42” x WT 20.6  in X70 M PSL2 material grade according to API 5L standard, suitable for gas & oil transfer systems.  It was the thickest welded pipe ever produced in Algeria.

Currently, Alfapipe is producing 20 km of this kind of pipe for its customer Sonatrach.

The commercial production has started immediately after the performance test.

Furthermore, the erection activities of a twin line for Alfapipe Annaba site, which is being supplied by Danieli W+K, are scheduled to start during the first half of 2018.
