KPS Conductive Piping Provides Repsol Fishing Ports With Easy-Install Long-Term Replacement For Metal Piping
REPSOL, the leading operator of fishing port fuelling points in Spain, approached KPS for a long-term replacement for corroded metal pipework at a selection of their ports.
The fishing boat refuelling points in Ondarreta, Sada and Malpica ports had been installed a number of years ago, using predominately metal pipework. These were corroding due to the salinity of the water and the environment.
The corroded metal piping was replaced with KPS’ HDPE plastic secondary contained (double wall) conductive piping, providing an easy-install, long-term fuel transfer solution, impervious to corrosion from the ever-present saltwater.
Key features of KPS piping for this project:
- Installer friendly: engineered for a quick and easy installation, KPS’ double wall electrofusion fittings weld both pipe walls simultaneously
- Control and monitoring of the interstitial space between the inner and outer pipes, providing an extra layer of security
- Conductive, preventing static electricity build up from fuel flow
- Long service life
Ondarreta, Sada and Malpica ports now have a safe and reliable piping system which will continue to perform for years to come.
