Glassfiber Reinforced Epoxy pipe is lighter than steel ones, approximately 1/8 of it, which enables easier carrying and installing.
Anti corrosive characteristic and chemical resistence will have longer life time than steel ones, distinctively.
As GRE pipe price gets lower than many years back, most types of vessels are applying GRE ballast lines these days, and SOx lines where it requires chemical resistence use GRE mostly.
Major local shipyards are our clients and added Japanese shipyards to our customer list since 2017 for scrubber lines.
For IMO's SOx emmission rule, we directly supplied pipes and installation job for Greek owners from 2018 ~ 2022, successfully, and of course with customer satisfaction.
We're trying to supply GRE pipes to Japanese shipyards for their Aframax sized vessels being built by them, for the ballast lines.
For Greek owners, we are also trying to convince them to apply our GRE ballast lines for their new buildings.
