During the installation of the largest polyethylene pipe with a solid wall and an integrated electro fusion joint, in the area of Buenos Aires, at the river Rio de la Plata, in Argentina, our team took advantage of the unique possibility to take some more photos for the calendar 2015.
This project site was an intake line with a size of DN/ID3600 mm, with a solid wall thickness of 220 mm, jointed by the integrated Krah-Electro fusion joint. The video will prove that the pipe is really so large and that the pictures later in the calendar are not made with photoshop J. A complete report of this project will be published very soon on this homepage and also in our upcoming new Improfile issue.
The new calendars will be shipped in December 2014 – so you still have some time.
A total of £2,336.31 could be raised, which will be donated to Prostate Cancer UK. Prostate Cancer UK is the leading UK charity for men with prostate cancer and prostate problems, with your money assisting those affected and allowing vital research to take place.
Polypipe’s Commercial Manager Steve Smith and his co-driver Keyline’s Steve Dewing drove the Mini Convertible ‘Batmobile’ from England to Hamburg, camping and completing tasks on the way in aid of the cause driving through France, Belgium, Luxembourg, Germany, Holland and back into France before returning to the UK.
As well as Polypipe participating in the Rally, Directors Glen Sabin, Steve Kite, Andy Cullum and John Moss cycled 300km from Berlin to Hamburg in support of the cause.
Overall the Rally and cycle ride proved a great success.
Unfortunately we have to announce that our old friend, representative and member of the board of supervisors, Dr. Mehdi Taremiha, has terminated his representing contract for Iran and has resigned from the board of supervisors with immediate effect due to personal reasons.
He will remain our old friend and we very much regret to terminate the long-term, solid and successful cooperation. We wish him all the best for his future private and business life.
A new board member will be elected during the next General Meeting. Furthermore we are looking for a new representative for Iran. For the moment please send all enquiries and contacts directly to Krah AG.
CEO, Alexander Krah
From 3 to 6 June 2014 the 5. Krah Community Meeting (KCM) took place. The group of 30 participants, consisting of customers, potential parties, external technical consultants and Krah employees met in Tallinn, the capital of Estonia, in order to discuss about new projects and developments. In total 12 different nationalities were present.
Beside reports on experiences from long-term members like Krah Misr / Egypt or ForbesGroup / UK the company HENZE GmbH could present itself as new member of the Krah Community. Another thematic highlight of the conference was the introduction of software solutions for production planning and production analysis.
As final of the symposium all participants visited the quite impressive pipe production of the hosting company Krah Pipes OÜ.
The Krah Community meetings now take place since nearly 10 years, every 1-2 years at different locations, always in cooperation and assistance with a local pipe producer and have become an important and well established event in the area of large bore piping systems.
The topics, presentations and speeches will be published in the upcoming issue of „ImProfil – the magazine for large plastic pipe technology”.
