Severstal Starts Pipes Shipments for South Stream Project

OAO Severstal, one of the world’s leading steel and steel-related mining companies, has begun shipments of 813 mm diameter pipes for the South Stream Offshore Pipeline. The pipes are manufactured at the Izhora Pipe Mill, part of Severstal’s Russian Steel division.

The Mill’s first batch of 39.0 mm wall, 12 meter pipes has been shipped to Severstal’s stevedore company, ZAO Neva-Metal (also part of the Russian Steel division), which has further transported the product to the project. Severstal plans to supply more than 40 thousand tonnes of pipes by the end of the second quarter.

Vitaly Motorin, director of pipe production for Severstal’s Russian Steel division, commented: “Immediate proximity of the Izhora Pipe Mill to the sea and river ports, well-developed railway and automobile road network and our own stevedore company allow us to manage logistics effectively to meet the high standards and complex requirements of the South Stream Transport B.V project”.

Severstal has won two tenders and will supply around 260 thousand tonnes of 813 mm diameter pipes manufactured at the Izhora Pipe Mill for the first and the second strings of the South Stream pipeline system’s offshore section.
