Izhora Pipe Mill
Severstal makes first delivery of large diameter pipes to Canada
January 17, 2022

Severstal has manufactured 1,500 tonnes of large diameter pipe (LDP) for the Canadian market for the first time.

The LDP will be delivered to one of the leading groups for the production and distribution of pipes in North America, adding value to a variety of  Canadian industrial activities, and will eventually be used across Canada’s energy sector.

Severstal has produced LDP which meets both the Canadian CSA  Z245.1 standard and American API5L specifications. The pipes also meet NACE MR 0103 and NACE MR 0175 and is made to satisfy the typical requirements of the Canadian market.

The pipes, which have diameters ranging between 508−1066.8 mm and wall thicknesses between 12.7−19.05 mm, were manufactured from X42M PSL2/GR 290−II + Gr B and X70M PSL2/GR 483−II + GR 448−II strength steel. They were produced at  the Izhora Plant (part of the Severstal Russian Steel division of PJSC Severstal) in the Kolpinsky district of St Petersburg, using heavy plate from  Severstal’s own Steel Plate Mill 5000, located on the same industrial site as the Izhora Pipe Plant. The pipes were coated with a thin anti-corrosive epoxy layer to protect them from corrosion and damage during transportation.

The client noted Severstal’s longstanding reputation as a Russian steelmaking leader in selecting Severstal as a supplier, and expressed full  confidence in receiving products of the highest quality. In addition, the  client has indicated its intention to further develop international cooperation between the companies, linking Russian quality with the most stringent Canadian requirements.

Alexander Semyonov, Sales Director for the Energy Sector at Severstal, commented:

Last year, Severstal significantly expanded its export geography for its LDP offering, cementing its position as a global market player. This is testament to the hard work put in by the whole team in developing new markets and products for our offering, as well as providing a superior service for  international clients.
