Cimtas Pipe Keeps Supporting ENKA Power Projects with its Integrated Piping Solutions

Cimtas Pipe, providing over 55,000 tons of pipe spools for power plants around the world up to now, continues to support ENKA with its own manufactured butt weld fittings and piping systems to be used at ENKA’s power plant projects.

In 2021, Cimtas Pipe has been awarded to provide pipe spools for the fast-track projects of ENKA, Misurata 650 MW Simple Cycle Power Plant and Tripoli West 671 MW Simple Cycle Power Plant in Libya. Fabrication of pipe spools is in progress and the planned completion is at the end of October 2021.


Cimtas Pipe Stands Out with its Heavier and Thicker LSAW Pipes in the Offshore Wind Industry

Recently expanding its Longitudinal Submerged Arc Welded ("LSAW’’) pipe production range, Cimtas Pipe has fabricated LSAW structural tubulars consisting of LSAW pipes at 64 inches in diameter and 50 mm wall thickness for the Floating Offshore Wind Project in France and delivered the first batch of the products at the end of January 2021.

These tubulars, manufactured according to API 5L and EN 1090-2, will be used as parts of columns of the floating substructure.
Thanks to increased capacity and special solutions to demanding projects, Cimtas Pipe strengthens its place among the sector players providing heavier and thicker welded steel pipes for the offshore market.


Cimtas Pipe Broadens its Global Footprint with LSAW Pipe and Fitting Approvals of Qatar Petroleum

Cimtas Pipe is pleased to announce that its carbon steel and ferritic LSAW pipe, and Fitting product groups have been approved in the Projects Preferred Manufacturer List (PPML) of Qatar Petroleum, the state-owned petroleum company of Qatar in the oil and gas industry.

With this new achievement and ADNOC approvals received in 2020, Cimtas Pipe will serve its MENA customers from a single location​.


We Plant Trees for a Sustainable Environment

As subsidiaries of ENKA, Çimtaş Group Companies aim to mitigate their operations' effects on the environment following ENKA’s sustainability targets.

Cimtas Pipe and Çimtaş Precision’s waste management solution partners, Atıksa, Burkasan, Golteks, and Dekasan, have contributed to our sustainability and social responsibility activities determined within the scope of supply chain management by donating 1,500 trees on behalf of our companies to the Turkish Foundation for Combating Soil Erosion Foundation (TEMA), a non-governmental organization (NGO) for reforestation and the protection of natural habitats in Türkiye.

We would like to thank our solution partners for their contribution towards leaving a more livable world for future generations.

Cimtas Pipe was Awarded to Provide LSAW Pipes and Fittings to
Hinkley Point C Nuclear Plant

Cimtas Pipe and GE Power will continue their long-term business relationship, ongoing since 2002 and based on mutual trust, with material supply solutions including newly promoted commodities of Cimtas Pipe to Hinkley Point C Nuclear Plant.

Within the scope of the project, Cimtas Pipe will manufacture 750 tons of LSAW pipes and 455 tons of elbows and tees in alloy, stainless and carbon steel material grades to be used in steam turbine piping of two units in the Hinkley Point C Nuclear Plant, 3,200 MW with two EPR reactors in Somerset, England.

While the first unit deliveries are planned to be completed in May 2021, the project will finish with Unit 2 deliveries in May 2022.

This project with GE Power carries importance in terms of including the first material supply to a nuclear project and enabling Cimtas Pipe to be distinguished from other suppliers with its capabilities for challenging nuclear projects that consist of highly strict manufacturing standards.

La Hague Nuclear Fuel Recovery Facility France

The Site Installation of the Equipment Fabricated by Cimtas Pipe for
the La Hague Nuclear Fuel Recovery Facility is Completed

Cimtas Pipe has provided the full scope of services including detail engineering, material supply, fabrication, and site delivery for 6 pressurizer units, pots, boilers, condensers, and ventilation stacks within the scope of orders received from Orano in late 2018 for the La Hague Nuclear Fuel Recovery Facility in France.

The condensers to be used for the New Fission Production Concentration Unit Project (NCPF), arrived at the site and the field installation has been completed successfully.

All the parts of the condensers are fabricated in X2 Cr Ni 18 9 to warrant a service life of 32 years. During design and fabrication, particular attention was focused on the condition that these condensers meet France's Nuclear Pressure Equipment Regulation (ESPN), which sets out the regulations applicable to nuclear pressure equipment, in particular to the primary coolant system.

Each of 6 units; 4,05 meters in length and 4,2 tons

Compliance with regulatory requirements is ensured by design quality and was monitored during manufacturing through scheduled inspections.


Thanks to this project completed with ORANO (formerly known as AREVA), one of the global players in the nuclear sector, Cimtas Pipe has proven its competencies for challenging nuclear-related projects.
