CNC Pipe Shop

Russian Piping Project

We are currently producing a large Volume of Pipe spools for 2 Ice breaking supply vessels which are being constructed in Russia. The total project consist of 800 tonnes of pipe spools, which is 32,000 pieces of pipe spools. The total project plan is for a span of 2 years.

Our pipe shop facility has been upgraded to cope with this large volume including an Automatic pipe cutting machine. We are producing an average of 50 spools per day, we even produced 100+ spools per day when we had a request to speed up the production from end user.

Proper work preparation is done by engineering prior to issuing spools drawings for final production, and spools are fabricated based on the isometric drawings. Cadmatic output for bending of pipe spools are directly fed in to the bending machine for accurate bending of spools.

Each pipe spools are inspected by our Quality Engineer during different stages of production, then pressure tested, few of them need to be inspected by a Surveyor.

After QC inspections, pipe spools are sent for the Processing Stage in which pipe spools are Blasted, Galvanized, Pickled, then painted with one layer of primer. Then each spools are sent to next stage for Name tagging, then segregated for the packing requirements.

Pipe spools are carefully packed in Wooden Boxes, we introduced BarCode Scanning Technology to ease and accurate the preparation of packing list for each Boxes. There are total 90 Containers to be sent to Russia to complete the logistics of these spools. Almost every week a container should leave our Yard.

This project looks very simple but required high attention and coordination to have right quality spools with right name tags are sent on time as per agreed planning.


Whether it's a simple question or you need assistance with your Damen product, we believe great things can start with a small conversation.
