ROSEN concluded its biggest production job ever in terms of converting bare steel pipe to internally coated wear-resistant pipe. As part of a planned production facility upgrade, the project included the installation of newly coated bare steel pipe. To accomplish this, ROSEN delivered a total of 21 km of wear-resistant pipe coated with the RoCoat™ liner. The pipe was also equipped with a wear-monitoring system that makes it possible to acquire the coating condition ‘online’, enabling better integrity management of the asset.
The lined pipe and wear-monitoring devices were designed and manufactured at ROSEN’s in-house production facility in Calgary, Alberta, which meant local resources were increased heavily. Approximately 35 people were hired locally to fill numerous positions, including shop production personnel, front office staff, shipping and receiving, forklift operators, and equipment maintenance professionals. Securing sufficient material to complete the production also involved numerous Canadian and international suppliers and subcontractors.
As a final deliverable, ROSEN Canada supplied 21 km of pipe in 60 in. lengths, along with a variety of coated bends and fittings to accommodate the customer’s scheduled major maintenance and new pipeline construction. During the maintenance outage, the original carbon steel pipelines were replaced with the RoCoat™-lined pipe system.
The client, their selected EPC contractor and the installation construction group all worked closely with ROSEN to ensure efficient and cost-effective delivery of the coated pipe.
The project’s scope of work was enormous for ROSEN, but the company was able to complete this project on schedule with zero injuries and a high-quality product for the client.
