DHATEC developed a strategy providing logistic solutions to all parties involved in the supply chain. The launch of the new product System88 helped shift the focus from the Bevel Protectors to a more extensive offering of products for pipe logistics. On January 5th 2015, Dhatec was acquired by the Canadian company Shawcor, the world’s leading integrated energy services company. Dhatec is still very customer focused and entrepreneurial. With a skilled, well-educated and highly motivated workforce, the company is ready to grow further with Shawcor under the Pipeline Performance Products business unit.
Dhatec's Pipe Carrier Premium improves all storage and transport operations. The logistic processes of tubes and pipes are simplified with only 5 carriers that cover a diameter range from 114,3 till 508,0 mm. The system provides possibilities for bundling tubes, allowing efficient handling and transport of many tubes simultaneously. Each carrier has a length of 1,225 m. Two carriers beside each other use the full truck width (2,45 m) resulting in the optimal truck load configuration. Because the carrier is designed to be canting proof, maximum transport safety is provided. With the Pipe Carrier Premium pipes are supported sideways. This results in less stress for pipe and coating due to a better distribution of forces. An additional advantage is that one model of the Pipe Carrier Premium is suitable for a certain diameter range. Less carriers are needed to cover different sizes.
