Only ten years ago, steel was the dominant material in marine outfall projects. Technological advances in raw material supply, more sophisticated extrusion technology and know-how development in submerging of pipelines has however changed this situation. In 2002 Pipelife Norge A/S won Europe's largest-ever plastic pipe project, beating off competition from old generation materials. The successful supply and installation of the Montpellier sea outfall project has shown clearly that for marine applications, PE pipe has proved its efficiency and competitiveness.
