All over the world, Primus Line® (stand Indoor 2) is used to rehabilitate critical pipeline infrastructure safely, in the long term and, above all, in a trenchless manner. This year, the company from Germany with five international locations celebrates its anniversary.
Some 25 years ago, in 1996, the idea was born for a kind of ‘super hose’ that is pulled into aging pipelines for the rehabilitation of pressure pipelines. However, five years of intensive development work passed from idea to finished product and foundation of the company.
Today, the staying power of the family-owned company is paying off. In the meantime, Primus Line® has been installed in more than 50 countries. Around the globe, network operators, water utilities and administrations are facing the challenge of an aging pipeline infrastructure. At the same time, the environmentally friendly and CO2-saving technology Primus Line® meets the spirit of the times in terms of sustainability and environmental protection.
Initially developed for the technically challenging gas market, Primus Line next entered the water market, which involves many certifications. In 2015, the oil market followed.
The technology scores as a tailor-made solution with low intervention and impact on the environment associated with the installation. Lines up to 2,500 m through nature reserves or inner cities and under traffic routes or rivers can be renewed and maintained for at least another 50 years. Primus Line® can also be laid above ground.
