Severstal delivers 6 thousand tons of large-diameter pipes to Peru

PAO Severstal has delivered 6,000 tons of large diameter pipes (LDP) to the Republic of Peru in South America.

The LDP were produced at the Izhorsky Pipe Plant (ITZ, part of Severstal’s Russian Steel division), located at the Company’s industrial site in St. Petersburg’s Kolpinsky district. The pipes were manufactured according to the API 5L PSL 1.

This was Severstal’s second shipment to Peru in 2021 following the delivery of a trial batch in Spring, bringing the total deliveries for this year to 6,000 tons.

Severstal uses its own rolled metal to build the pipes, which is produced in mill 5000 of the Company's sheet rolling shop, on the same industrial site as the ITZ. Once shipped from the port of St. Petersburg, the LDPs were delivered to South America to the port of Ilo in Peru.

Alexander Semenov, Sales Director for the Energy Sector at Severstal, commented:

“Severstal has significantly expanded the sales geography of our exports for large-diameter pipes. We now cover Europe, Asia, North Africa, Middle East, and North America, and South America is becoming a new target market. Our customers choose to work with us because of our ability to complete orders quickly and guarantee a high level of quality in our products, supported by our own steelmaking and rolling facilities. The tracking services we offer, which keep our customers updated on the progress of production and delivery, provide an additional competitive advantage."
