Overland pipeline construction work is where PIH served our apprenticeship. Since the early 1980s PIH has been providing induction heating and field joint coating services to main line contractors; today, this sector forms a major part of the PIH business profile.

PIH can offer varying levels of services to meet the needs of the customer; Supervision (only), Supervision and minimal technicians (only) or a complete service package to include all personnel and equipment (blasting, heating and material application).

PIH’ equipment and processes are based on the use of automation, with the equipment being designed and manufactured to the exacting parameters of the pipeline.

The use of automation brings repeatable quality for the installation of the materials, with the added benefit of high daily production from a single field joint coating spread. The use of automation also reduces operator fatigue (preventing errors and accidents).

PIH has gained extensive project experience around the world, providing services to major projects.

Whilst automation and innovation is our core, PIH’ project experience also includes the installation of field joint coating materials applied by the use of manual processes.

PIH offers a coating service that is fast and efficient but also clean, safe, and commercially attractive.
