Composite pipe repair extends pipe life by 20 years

Published:  22 June, 2021

The decision by power generation company EDF to repair, rather than replace, leaking pipework at its nuclear power plant in Bugey has reportedly proved hugely beneficial both practically and financially. Maintenance engineers used Henkel’s LOCTITE Composite Pipe Repair System to restore the integrity of 170m of fresh water pipes, a process that was undertaken without the need to stop production and at a cost that was 35% less than the replacement value.

The company says the LOCTITE Composite Pipe Repair System is a sustainable solution that has already proven its cost-effectiveness across many industrial sectors including energy and petrochemical production, paper converting, water treatment and chemical processing. And in common with other users, it has enabled EDF to extend the service life of its damaged steel pipes by up to 20 years with a repair that is certified to the global quality standard, ISO 24817.
