In order to better supply our customers in Southeast Asia, Oceania and Australia, in the year 2008, the EEW Group founded a plant for longitudinally-welded steel pipes in Malaysia. Equipped with a four-roll bending machine with 4.2 m (13.8 ft.) length and a JCO bending machine with 12.5 m (41 ft.) length, EEW Malaysia is in a position to manufacture longitudinally-welded steel pipes with outer diameters between 406 mm (16”) and 6000 mm (236.2”) and wall thicknesses of up to 125 mm (4.9”). Our plant near Pasir Gudang on the south coast of Malaysia is therefore well equipped for the manufacturing of large structural pipes and pipe constructions. But customers in the pipeline business can also expect the best solutions if they choose EEW Malaysia as a supplier.
Time is a significant factor in success, especially for our customers in the offshore construction industry. In order to significantly reduce the construction time of massive offshore constructions and in order to ensure quick delivery, EEW does not just produce singel lengths of pipe, but also complete components ready for installation. These pipe constructions can be manufactured up to a length of 120 metres (393.7 ft.) and a piece weight of up to 800 tonnes.
In addition to primary steel products, EEW Malaysia is able to offer a complete service, made up of pipe accessories, secondary steel and coating. Various coating procedures, such as fusion bonded epoxy coating (FBE), three-layer polyethylene coating (3LPE), internal flow coating systems or glass flake coatings can be carried out using our in-plant facilities.
A special feature in our Malaysian plant’s production programme is the possibility to manufacture expanded pipes. These pipes are available in measurements from 406 mm (16”) to 1,625.6 mm (64”) in outside diameter, wall thicknesses of up to 50.8 mm (2”) and single lengths of up to 13 m (42.7 ft.). With the implementation of the expander technology, we guarantee perfect ovality of the pipe as well as process stability, reproducibility and economic viability.
With more than 2,100 employees and nine production facilities throughout the entire world, the EEW Group is the world’s leading specialist for the production of submerged-arc welded pipes.
We move in complex markets where one aspect is more important than all of the others: the development of custom solutions for unique projects. For that, you need abilities and know-how. For that, you need experience. But most importantly, you need employees who make every effort to achieve the best results. Motivated people who gladly meet new challenges are always welcome to become a part of the EEW family. Together we develop new dimensions.
