Zhuhai-made steel pipe gains large intl orders
Panyu Chu Kong (PCK) Steel Pipe (Zhuhai) recently signed a procurement contract with East African Crude Oil Pipeline worth $370 million. PCK will supply the EACOP project with 1,500 kilometers (932 miles) of SAWL pipes, which will have a total weight of 260,000 metric tons.
The export of steel pipes has also become a strong case of high-end manufacturing products in Zhuhai entering the international market. This further promotes the development of local hi-tech industries.
The EACOP project is set to be the world's longest heated crude oil pipeline project. It will have a storage capacity of 246,000 buckets a day, once put into operation. The pipes will connect an oil field near Lake Albert in Uganda's Hoima region to a new export port that will be built north of Tanzania's Tanga Port.
The total investment scale of the project will reach $10 billion. At the same time, it will bring billions of dollars in annual revenue to the countries involved, while also vigorously promoting the economic development of East Africa.
As one of the most important pipeline projects that the international energy market has seen in recent years, the EACOP project is also an important energy project that is under the guidance of the Belt and Road Initiative.
PCK Steel Pipe (Zhuhai) covers a total area of 300,000 square meters (74 acres) in Jinwan's Gaolan Port. Its products have been widely applied in major domestic and overseas projects, such as the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge and Nigeria's natural gas pipeline project.
