Russian steelmaker PAO Severstal has completed its first delivery of large-diameter pipes (LDP) to Greece.

LDPs with three external layers of polyethylene coating, meeting the DIN 30670 standard, and an internal coating as per AWWA C-210 were delivered in line with the contract. The pipes, which have a diameter of 1016 mm, were produced at the Izhora Pipe Mill (ITZ), part of Severstal’s Russian Steel Division.

"Severstal has successfully been supplying large diameter pipes to the European market for some time, including to Bulgaria, Poland, Slovakia and the Netherlands. What was interesting about this shipment was that the pipes were delivered directly to the doors of the end customer’s warehouse. We intend to further strengthen our position in the European market by offering our customers a wide variety of additional high-quality services”.

Maksim Starikov, deputy sales director for the energy sector for export markets at Severstal:

For the first time, ITZ developed and applied an AWWA C-210 standard coating to the inside of the pipes in order to meet the client’s specific requirements.

The LDPs were delivered by truck to Greece directly from the Izhora Pipe Mill, which is located at a production site in the St. Petersburg Kolpino District.

Severstal is one of the world's leading vertically integrated steel and steel-related mining companies.
