A respected customer in Poland required pipe cutting equipment/machinery to assist them in the construction of a transmission pipeline project.
Transmission pipelines are used to transport crude oil and natural gas from their respective gathering systems to refining, processing, or storage facilities. Transmission pipelines also transport refined petroleum products and natural gas to customers, for use or for further distribution.
For such a large and industrial project, they would require equipment that was manufactured for versatility, portability, ease of use and ensured safety for the operator in a hazardous environment.

Step forward our Key Plant Split Frame line.
