TULIP-gaz-Fives-Nordon-FIVES

In early 2019, Fives Nordon got final acceptance for the “TULIP” project completed for GRTGaz in France.

This pilot project included the conversion of pipes used to transport type B gas into type H gas pipes in Northern of France.

For Fives Nordon and its subcontractors, the TULIP project represents:

  • an 18-month project

  • 14 months of work

  • 18,000 hours by Fives Nordon (excluding subcontracted work)

  • 13 Transport tests with 21 validated test files

  • 7 connections to the existing network + 3 connections between new lines

  • Regassing on time and with no leaks across more than 60 flange connections at 85 bar.

This project is the achievement of a whole team and the result of a great collaboration with GRTgaz (Projects team, design office and operating team).
