Shawcor's facility in Pozzallo, Italy

Shawcor has a second coating yard in Italy, located at Pozzallo (RG) in the South West of Sicily island, for serving the huge incoming projects of the Mediterranean area. The yard is about 14 hectars including buildings and offices of 12.000 sq.m. This modern plant supplies various types of coatings such us: external FBE / Dual FBE and 3-layer polyolefin (PE/PP) coatings, internal coatings, and the leading edge of polypropylene thermal insulation coatings for deep offshore.

Load in and load out of pipes as well as transportation of raw material is extremely favourable due to the very short distance of the coating yard to the Pozzallo port. Moreover, many of the coating plants installed can handle double joint pipes (24 m).
