Athens, Greece-based Corinth Pipeworks Pipe Industry SA, has been awarded a contract by Anglo American Sur S.A. for the manufacture and supply of steel pipes for the Los Bronces Pipeline Replacement project in Chile. The contract, covering the pipe material for the 35-km slurry pipeline in Chile, includes the supply of 24” LSAW pipes in heavy wall thickness up to 31.75mm and three Layer Polyethylene (3LPE) Coating. The overall quantity of 13,700 metric tons of steel pipes will be manufactured within 2020 at Corinth Pipeworks’ plant in Greece.

The pipeline is located in the Andean Mountains at an average altitude of 3,500 meters above sea level and the pipes will require extremely strict geometrical tolerances to ensure uniform flow through the entirety of the pipeline. This award in South America confirms the leading position of Corinth Pipeworks for pipeline projects all over the world.
