Pipelines: a well-rounded matter with TÜV NORD
Sometimes you literally need to be slow on the uptake: when long distances prevail between energy suppliers and consumers, pipelines ensure that the energy is transported to the destination. In this case, there are many aspects to consider: the transport of raw materials must be carried out safely, cost-effectively, and environmentally-friendly. With TÜV NORD, pipelines are a well-rounded matter: Our experts provide you with support throughout the entire service life of the pipeline, from the routing and planning to the installation and operation through to the modernisation, decommissioning, and dismantling.
We provide support before the construction work for a new pipeline even begins: we know which material, components, welding methods, and corrosion protection measures are ideal for the respective system. Furthermore, we also provide advice on the flow design and in regulation issues. From the construction to the commissioning, we ensure a constant high level of quality through regular inspections and check that the system design complies with regulations at the end. If the pipeline has already been commissioned, our experts provide assistance with maintenance schedules and testing concepts, and evaluate the condition of the system. We also provide you with support in case of damage: we determine the causes, offer material tests, and analyse operational procedures to ensure the best possible protection for the future in order to keep your pipeline flowing smoothly.
