Corinth Pipeworks has been awarded a contract by ONE-Dyas B.V. to provide high frequency welded (HFW) steel pipes for the N05-A platform. The N05-A platform is located in the North Sea, about 20 km north of the Ems estuary.

This offshore gas production project will run entirely on renewable energy from the nearby Riffgat wind farm, which makes for an active contribution to the energy transition and to achieving the goals of the Climate Agreement.

The contract covers approximately 16 km of 20 in. dia. and 20.6 mm wall thickness, HFW linepipe, including external 3-layer polypropylene coating and concrete weight coating applied at the same location as pipe manufacturing. The HFW pipes will be manufactured in Corinth’s facility in Greece and delivered within 2023. Furthermore, the pipeline will be certified according to the ASME B31.12 Option B code for hydrogen pipelines, supporting the plans for future transportation of up to 100% hydrogen.

This project is important in the effort to reduce the environmental footprint of natural gas production with the assistance of electricity from renewable sources, such as offshore wind farms. Electricity from the wind farm will be able to be converted into green hydrogen and transported via pipelines to the onshore grid.
