A strategic partnership: our contribution to Italy’s energy future

In the realm of energy, strategic partnerships and effective intermediation play a crucial role in realizing vitally important infrastructural projects. A recent example of this synergy has emerged through the efforts of Pipex Italia, which facilitated a fruitful collaboration between Snam and Corinth Pipeworks.

Snam, a leader in the Italian energy sector, entrusted Corinth Pipeworks with supplying 13 kilometers of longitudinally submerged arc-welded (LSAW) steel pipes for an offshore-onshore natural gas pipeline for the Floating Storage and Regasification Unit (FSRU) moored off the coast of Ravenna (Italy).

With a pipe diameter of 26 inches, the new pipeline is certified for transporting up to 100% hydrogen, promoting energy sustainability. The triple-layer coating of polypropylene and the concrete weight coating (CWC) provide durability and anti-corrosive properties to the pipes.

The value of the contract for this supply exceeds 10 million euros, highlighting the significance of a project of such scale and the collaboration between Snam, Corinth Pipeworks, and Pipex Italia in accelerating the transition to cleaner and more sustainable energy sources.

For further information, we invite you to refer to the press release published by Corinth Pipeworks on September 25, 2023.
