Economic responsibility of GRP

The long lifetime and durability of GRP products such as Amiblu pipes and fittings prove beneficial with regard to business budgets: They are a trouble-free long-term investment and a cost-effective solution for all shareholders involved in a project. GRP products save time and money in that they do not require any heavy lifting gear or on-site welding works, feature an exceptionally long and generally maintenance-free service life, and low lifetime cost.

In the case of GRP pipes, the designer benefits from the pipes’ low coefficient of thermal expansion, and if necessary high angular deflection with specially designed flexible joint system for optimizing the pipe route without bends and thereby saving costs. Building contractors profit from the pipes’ light weight, their quick and easy jointing, the ability to accommodate small misalignments or settlements, and the uncomplicated installation with trenchless technologies such as relining and microtunneling. Operators enjoy a low-maintenance product with a service life of more than 150 years, minimum consumption of resources, and maximum energy output for e.g. hydropower.

Customized design for most efficient pipe routing

+  Fully automated production process

+  Pipe nesting (pipe-in-pipe) for economic transport

+  Low weight for low transport costs, easy handling, and no need for heavy machinery on site

+  Quick and easy pipe jointing without additional equipment or welding

+  Compact wall thickness for less excavation material at the same inner diameter

+  Outstanding hydraulic characteristics for same flow rate as other materials at smaller diameter

+  Maintenance free service life

+  Lifetime of over 150 years

=  Economically the best solution over the entire product life cycle

Footprint

Our footprint

We aim to have life cycle assessments for all products by end of 2022 and a carbon-neutral pipe production by 2030. We use the resources we have—our business, our voice, and our network—to fight the climate crisis and inspire people around the globe to value water as we should.
