CRC-Evans At Work On French Natural Gas Pipeline

January 2010 Vol. 237 No. 1

CRC-Evans Automatic Welding is providing equipment for a gas pipeline project under way in France and scheduled for completion shortly.

The Beauce-Mantois Link is designed to supplement the existing Beauce pipeline with a pipeline between Saint-Arnoult-des-Bois and Fontenay-Mauvoisin, an area west-southwest of Paris.

Pipeline owner GRTgaz and contractor Ghizzoni S.p.A. are constructing the pipeline link that will comprise 40 miles (65 km) of 36-inch pipe. Ghizzoni has chosen the internal welding machine and the P260 and P600 fill pass automatic welding machines manufactured by CRC-Evans.
