SMS Group receives cold pilger mill order from TUBACEX

Tubacex S.A., a global manufacturer of seamless stainless steel tubes, has placed an order with SMS group for a cold pilger mill, type KPW 290 L, at its new greenfield site close to Abu Dhabi, in order to effectively serve the growing demand for cold pilgered tubes in the oil and gas industry.
Tubacex received the largest order in its history for the supply of comprehensive solutions for gas extraction from Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) in Abu Dhabi. In cooperation with SMS group, Tubacex plans to commission its first OCTG (oil country tubular goods) plant in the Middle East and is expanding its product portfolio to include seamless stainless steel tubes.
The KPW 290 L is the second largest cold pilger mill and the second of its kind that the SMS group has built in terms of size and flexibility of the dimensional range. Following the successful operation of other cold pilger mills, the KPW 370 L in Germany and the KPW 290 L in China, this new order strengthens SMS’ position in the market for large-scale pilger mills.
SMS group’s scope comprises the design of the complete pilger mill, including the delivery of mechanical, electrical, and auxiliary systems, right up to supervision support and technical production assistance. A data logging unit is part of the equipment package and provides increased production efficiency and continuous system analysis for operators, maintenance workers, and production planners.
