Carefully laid out piping systems throughout the vessel

The on board piping systems work as a circulatory system, ensuring vessel operation and a safe and pleasant working- and living environment on board.

Piping - piping factory at Vard Tulcea

The vessel and its systems and equipment all depend on the piping systems.

Our piping systems provide flow of liquids ranging from chemicals to fresh water, and all medium and pressurized air, ranging from gases to circulation of heated air to the living areas from the central heating system.

We handle this in a safe manner, and ensure an efficient layout of the piping systems. Our team has a wide experience ensuring the safety and well-being of everyone on board and the operation of the vessel.


Production and installation

We put great efforts into routing the pipes throughout the vessel in the best way possible ensuring an effective layout, space saving and access for inspection.

Our main goal is achieving the highest operational standards of the vessel by ensuring long term operating time of the pipe systems. When starting a new project with a new customer we create a standard for the pipe systems based on the customer’s expectations, class requirements and our competence. We thoroughly choose the right material according to the functionality of the different pipe systems and strictly follow the suppliers’ standards. The pipes are then prefabricated in our workshops in Norway and Tulcea.
