The other shareholders consist of Fluxys Deutschland GmbH (16.5%), Gasunie Deutschland Transport Services GmbH (16.5%), and ONTRAS Gastransport GmbH (16.5%).

TDCI was contracted by GASCADE to coat 376 pipes (almost 7km) of DN 1400 for certain trenchless installation sections of the pipeline, with a customized pau wrap® GRP-coating specified by GASCADE. 270 of these pipes were additionally equipped with pau wrap® GRP-spacers for installation in micro-tunnels.

TDC International completes work on TAP

TDCI is proud to announce the completion of our collaboration with BONATTI J&P AVAX S.r.l. on a section of the Trans Adriatic Pipeline’s Greece segment stretching about 1.1 kilometres consisting also of two river crossings under the Aliakmonas river using a Direct Pipe® system.

Due to the tough terrain, TDCI was approached by BONATTI J&P AVAX S.r.l. to coat pipes (coated in our factory in Germany and transported by train to Greece) and field joints (coated on-site) with our proprietary application pau wrap®. According to the customers specifications and tough geological conditions, we coated the pipes and field joints with a customized 7mm pau wrap®.

Emerging trends and innovations in pipe coating

Requirements for pipeline operators and owners to ensure ever more stringent environmental protection and other regulatory compliance directly translate into increasing requirements already in the planning and construction phase of a pipeline project.

TDC International is working closely with its customers to identify ways to improve the safety and performance of the pipeline installation process. TDC International’s pau wrap® enables highest protection of the pipe against abrasion and other mechanical impacts prior to and during the pipe installation.

We continuously strive to improve the efficiency of the pau wrap® system. We have recently enhanced the preparation phase of the welding seam coating at the job site by introducing a peel-off segment. This significantly reduces dust emissions and preparation time and therefore our customers’ cost at site.
