(ANSA) - BELGRADE, JUN 3 - Corinth Pipeworks, the steel pipes segment of Cenergy Holdings, is executing with Snam orders for 440km of pipes, produced in Corinth Pipeworks' plant in Thisvi (Greece), Corinth Pipeworks said in a statement on Wednesday.

The orders are among the first high-pressure newly manufactured pipes certified to transport up to 100% hydrogen for a transmission gas pipeline in Europe, the company said.

"We are very excited to be an innovative producer and early adopter, providing certified large diameter/high strength steel pipes for hydrogen transportation. The potential of hydrogen to build a sustainable energy mix in the future and achieve global decarbonisation targets is significant, and Corinth Pipeworks aims to be an integral part in providing solutions to its customers to reach their goals" said Ilias Bekiros, CEO of Corinth Pipeworks.

"This agreement confirms Snam's commitment to making its infrastructure increasingly ready to transport not only natural gas and biomethane, but also hydrogen. While we are continuing with analysis and certification of our network, when we replace old pipelines, we now routinely use new pipes tested in the laboratory in line with international standards and able to transport hydrogen up to 100% without changing pressure. Our goal is to deliver fully decarbonized gas by 2050" said Massimo Derchi, Chief Industrial Assets Officer of Snam. (ANSA).
