General – partnership
Strohm from the Netherlands has signed a global framework agreement with Over Sea & Land (OSL) Concrete.
The partnership will further enhance the specialist concrete supply ship company’s green credentials with a corrosion-resistant, lightweight and robust pipeline solution to transfer/supply concrete safely from its vessels.signed a long term partnership agreement with OSL Concrete, to deliver low carbon footprint and more cost effective ready mix concrete and concrete slurry through Strohm’s Thermoplastic Composite Pipe (TCP).
OSL utilises advanced, environmentally friendly vessels to produce and transport the world’s most widely consumed man-made material to coastal and waterway markets and large civil projects. Its transportation method delivers a greener solution compared to the use of conventional supply and remixer trucks.
In addition, the firm also implements its proprietary carbon capture utilisation and storage (CCUS) CO2 technology into the concrete and recycles waste-water onboard its vessels to produce some of the world’s lowest embodied carbon concrete. Tens of thousands of tons of CO2 can be eliminated each year with each OSL vessel.
Strohm’s TCP technology will allow OSL to deliver concrete in large volumes and for long periods at a time. As it can be easily spooled and supplied in continuous lengths on reel up to one mile length, OSL’s vessels can quickly set up onsite at the beginning of a campaign and recover the pipeline at the end of the day to move offsite or on to another delivery location.
The pipeline’s smooth bore and high-pressure rating ensures pumping of the concrete at long distance without obstruction. The lightweight TCP pipeline can be floated on the water for land-based operation or submerged, to meet the demands of each project site or market delivery. This gives OSL a significant range of sites to supply concrete mixes globally.
