25/03/2020 - WeldingSerimax has won its first onshore contract for Landlines in Thailand. This contract covers welding operations on the PPT’s 5TP2 project (5th Transmission Pipeline - Phase 2). Our customer IBC Industrial Co. Ltd. is the main contractor for the construction of the 42”diameter pipeline running over 200km. Crossing the rice fields, it offers a very demanding environment allowing us to enhance the performance of our robust dual torch auto-welding system called Saturnax.
The 5TP2 projectThe pipeline is intended to reinforce the network of Thailand's national gas company, PTT, in the country’s eastern and central areas. In particular, it aims to improve the gas supply to power plants in the region to support the growing demand for electricity. It will transport liquefied natural gas (LNG) from PTT terminals.
Improved productivity while preserving qualityTwo key elements have made the difference and ensured the project’s success i.e. a far better productivity than that offered by other technologies and the high level of quality, not affected by the speed of the process, with very good repair rates.
