Pipeline construction for many industries

Industrial Pipeline Construction for Media, Machines & Processes

Power plants. Pulp and paper industry. Steel industry. Chemical and petrochemical industry. Food and pharmaceutical industries.

These are just a few of the industries whose centrepiece consist of piping systems. Just some of the industries for which we have been responsible for over 50 years.

Starting with planning, through manufacturing  to assembly and maintenance, Kremsmüller covers the entire industrial piping construction in all nominal sizes and for a variety of media. Such as high-temperature steels for live steam lines in power plants or high-alloy steel grades for transport lines in the chemical industry or in the assembly sector steel structures, machine and equipment assembly.

  • Stainless steel pipes DN15 to DN1500 (or higher) for various media, water, chemicals
  • Steam pipes DN15 to DN1000 for heat supply and process heat
  • C-steel pipelines DN15 to DN3000 for process water supplies, power plant pressure lines, refrigeration lines, blast furnace gas lines, etc.
  • Installation of equipment such as pumps, valves, heat exchangers, filters, separators, vessels, dissolvers, columns, etc.
  • Stainless steel and carbon steel hydraulic piping up to DN150 and 600 bar
  • Piping of lubrication systems in the paper and steel industry
  • Detailed planning with stress/strain calculations, pressure loss calculations
  • District heating/district cooling pipelines laid underground
  • Gas pipelines (steel and plastic PE) and pipelines laid underground
  • Plastic pipelines (PP, PE, PVC, PVDF) for various media
  • new installation, reconstruction and shutdown work
  • media and process pipelines
  • Pipe prefabrication for all material grades (carbon steel to high-alloy steels)

Piping in pipeline construction

Heat & refrigeration piping

Biomass plants. Combined heat and power plant piping. Refrigeration plants. Converter and transfer stations. 

With Kremsmüller, you can count on the use of modern technologies and the extensive know-how of a plant engineering company in the field of thermal and regenerative energy supply.

Power generation. Kremsmüller takes care of the planning, delivery and installation of turnkey power plants and central heating systens for the energy supply of individual residential areas, but also to entire city districts. All the necessary trades are coordinated. All strings tied together in one safe hand.

Transmission lines. This includes the planning, supply and installation of piping systems of all materials, nominal diameters and media. Pipelines are laid in closed or open construction, as overhead lines or by means of culverts. Special emphasis is placed on the final renaturation.

Consumption plants. Starting with the installation of the pipeline network, through supply and exhaust air systems to converter and transfer stations, including the necessary electrical, instrumentation and control technology installations.

  • Piping of combined heat and power plants (biomass plants, waste incineration plants)
  • Oil and gas combustion plants
  • Plants for water, steam and ORC processes
  • Media piping
  • Laying of transport pipelines
  • Piping of heating and cooling systems for industry and commerce
  • Drying chamber connections
  • Converter and transfer stations incl. EMSR
  • Steam and water circuit piping
  • Fuel supply systems
  • Compressed air and auxiliary systems
  • Piping systems for sprinkler, foam extinguishing and dry extinguishing systems
  • Equipment installation
  • Plant construction services

Pipeline construction even under difficult conditions

Pipeline construction

Underground pipelines of all nominal sizes and dimensions. State-of-the-art equipment and machinery. Committed, safety-conscious and highly trained employees. That is pipeline construction at Kremsmüller.

In the sensitive field of energy supply, Kremsmüller covers all the requirements of the industry. Starting with district heating pipelines, which run from the combined heat and power plant directly to the end user, to construction of gas storage facilities and distribution stations, to laying of kilometer-long oil production pipelines.

The equipment pool is completly tailored to the challenge of pipeline construction. State-of-the-art pipe-laying caterpillar pipelayers and welding equipment guarantee precision even in difficult weather conditions

  • Engineering
  • District heating
  • Gas transmission pipelines
  • Gas compressor and distribution stations
  • Oil production pipelines
  • Water supply pipelines
  • Culvert pipelines, bridge suspensions
  • Maintenance and overhauls

Pipeline construction with experience

Our pipeline construction projects are structured as follows

Projects incl. engineering

Projects including engineering

Especially in the energy & environment, pulp (& paper), chemical, petrochemical, food industries as well as for heating & cooling supply networks and supply networks based on fossil and synthetic energy sources, Kremsmüller takes over from the completed basic engineering.

Our range of services starts with the handling or commissioning of the detailed engineering in pipeline planning and extends to the entire construction including material procurement and installation up to commissioning.

Projects without engineering

Projects without engineering

In all other industries (except pharmaceuticals and automotive) Kremsmüller takes over from a completed detail engineering in the pipeline planning.

The focus of the project lies in the high welding requirements in pipeline construction during the construction phase.

Pipeline construction for all media

For these media we manufacture pipeline construction

Kremsmüller covers the entire industrial piping construction in all nominal sizes, whether for heating or cooling. Pipelines are built for all media:

  • Water
  • Steam
  • Gas
  • Oil
  • Chemicals
  • Acids
  • alkalis
  • liquid and viscous food
  • plastics
  • resins
  • waxes
  • Other media

In the area of district heating and cooling distribution, underground pipes (underground) are laid from the producer to the end user.

CHP lines that fit

District heating Krieau

2.3 kilometers of CHP lines supply the “Korso” residential project in Vienna’s “Viertel Zwei” district with district heating and cooling. These are generated on site, at the Krieau harness racing track, in an environmentally friendly and sustainable manner from geothermal energy. 350 welds and 100 pre-insulated fittings were required to properly lay the 2,300 meters of CHP pipelines at a depth of around two meters. The quality of this work was more than satisfactory to the client BauConsult.


Pipeline construction professionals at work


Very versatile was the piping construction for chemical industry, which Kremsmüller manufactured at Synthomer’s site in Pischelsdorf. The piping for a high-precision dosing system for chemicals, a cooling water circulation conveying system, as well as two 450 m³ finished product storage tanks were constructed.

A new wagon loading station for finished products was also piped. Managing Director Christoph Brunnthaler emphasized that the service offered by Kremsmüller was unique on the market and thanked the company for the always appreciative, constructive and honest cooperation.

Pipeline construction for hydrogen


The H2FUTURE reference project by voestalpine, Siemens and Verbund is concerned with the CO2-free production of hydrogen. The project in Linz has attracted and continues to attract international attention, as it shows steel-producing companies an alternative to coal. Kremsmüller was responsible for the manufacture and installation of piping inside and outside the H2 plant as well as the assembly and installation of the equipment for Siemens.
