Research and Development


EUROPIPE sets standards. We work every day to reaffirm our leadership in technology. Thus cooperation with various renowned research institutes such as the Salzgitter Mannesmann Forschungsinstitut is a matter of course.

Our product development is based on market analyses as well as customer specifications and expectations – and on our own ideas and requirements too, of course.


  • High-strength Steel X80 
    We secure the development of all mechanical properties of pipes taking various design criteria into consideration. The objective is always the safe use of all relevant material properties.

  • Heavy-walled pipes
    We are constantly improving the mechanical and technological properties for the extreme requirements of deep-sea usage, running extensive additional tests on resistance to collapse.

  • Pipelines for Sour Gas Service
    Pipes for sour gases are always customised to each application. Whatever these requirements are – from a high proportion of H2S to slightly sour gases – we always achieve the best mechanical combinations of material that protect against corrosion.

Process Development

To us, process development means a continuous development of production processes by specific investments in existing or new plants, and the development of manufacturing, inspection and information technologies.
