Delivery of the pipes
Practical: The construction site was provided with replenishment supplies over this railway line.

Let the water flow!

With 30,000 cubic metres of water per hour, the cooling water requirement of the customer has now been covered.

Kremsmueller secured the cooling water requirement in the factory of a leading steel treatment group. The customer had continuously expanded the capacity of the factory. This increased the requirement for cooling water. When the water from an adjoining stream was not enough any more, a new water concept was developed. A river 2.3 kilometres away had the lead role in this concept. Kremsmueller set up the connection between the river and the factory with 7,400 metres of piping. Two inlet and outlet pipes each ensure optimum operational  reliability. Various connecting and branch pipes were laid underground.
Before the welding experts from Kremsmueller could get to work, they had to pass a craftsmanship skills test at the site. Only those who qualified under the strict supervision of an external expert would be permitted to carry out welding work in the project. Thus, first-class weld seams were ensured from the beginning.
The steel pipes, of up to DN 1600, carry up to 30,000 cubic metres of water per hour. The water is pumped into the customer’s factory through "the tunnels and bridges" of the pipeline. When it has done its job, it is led back. Of course, without having caused  any environmental pollution. Thanks to the height difference, a turbine can be used for environment-friendly energy generation from the return flow.
Welding at the highest level
Only the best among the best were allowed to work on the project. Selection was by means of a craftsmanship skills test.
Piping construction
Massive quantities of water can be carried through these pipes.
