Bredero Shaw will provide coatings for 335km of pipe for oil operation in Asia

TORONTO—ShawCor Ltd.’s pipecoating division, Bredero Shaw, has been awarded a US$60 million contract to provide pipeline coatings for the Zawtika Development Project operated by PTTEP International Ltd in southern Burma.
The contract involves coating approximately 335 km of pipe with three-layer anticorrosion coating and concrete weight coating.

A three-layer anticorrosion coating includes a fusion bonded epoxy, copolymer adhesive and polyethylene, which protects off-shore multi-diameter pipelines with high operating temperatures.

An external, two-layer concrete weight coating provides negative buoyancy and mechanical protection for underwater pipes.

Toronto-based Bredero Shaw employs more than 4,000 people at facilities in 15 countries.


The division provides specialized coating systems and related services for corrosion protection, insulation and weight coating applications for on and off-shore pipelines, including highly engineered corrosion and insulation systems for deepwater applications.
