DJ «double joint» yard to double the progressing speed of Ø 30 to 50” pipeline which usually consist of 12 m length can laid down at a maximum rate of 100 pc/day with a consequent pipeline onwards stepping of about 1.2 km /day.
The yard produces 24m pipes by coupling 12m cans and joining them by means of MIG/SAW or just MIG multi–pass process in accordance with targeted production rate.
The 24m pipes are handled and conveyed to the different work-stations normally distributed and located on a surface of about 6000 m², and finally brought to their final destination where, fixed at the rate of 100 pc/day, they will be laid down for a pipeline onwards stepping of 2.4 km/day.
The yard is equipped with : motorized and idle rotator height adjustable sections, biconical or «diabolo» roll motorized conveyors, hydraulic side-unload fixtures and C & B manipulators.
The handling pipe is interlocked by safety systems and sequenced by desk control panels connected through walky-talkies.
