ScanTech offers safe pipes based on the industry standards EN253, our patented technology is a factory-applied insulation with embedded state-of-the-art technology leak and 3rd party damage detection using fibre optic technology.

Scantech is using ISO 14001 for factory made parts.

Based on moving our equipment into a steel producers factory will give an upgrade / add on to any steel pipes and give a supremely efficient layer of PUR insulation that incorporates fibre optic cables.

This method is adding additional value to any steel product – the PE casing will ensure that any leaks are kept in 6 meter sections thanks to the patent pending design.

Other application could be that client have purchased the steel pipes themselves and we then take over the responsibility and establishes a workshop area where we upgrade the pipes near the site.

We can upgrade pipes up to 12 m length – section dividers will always be 6 m due to the foaming process.

Keep your system under continuous supervision

Wouldn’t it be perfect to have a detection system to monitor your entire system of pipelines?

Principles of SafePipe

Improve lifetime performance of your pipeline

Millions of kilometres of pipelines are used to move crude oil from wellheads to processing facilities, export terminals and onwards to refineries. These pipelines have to cross remote and hostile areas, often with extreme temperatures and weather conditions.

The pipeline operating company is required to monitor mechanical loads, pressure changes, corrosion rates etc. to evaluate the risk of pipeline leaks. Thus, the pipelines must be perfectly designed to meet these challenging operating conditions.

Therefore, oil and gas pipelines require continuous monitoring during their operational life. In the event of imminent failure, the operator has to identify the critical component and its exact location before a minor spill turns into a major disaster.


  • Saving OPEX
  • 24/7 monitoring
  • Reaction time during leaks
  • 3rd party intrusion alarm
  • On site thermal and fibre optics cables

    Combines key benefits from four technologies

  • The optic fibre continously monitors, in real-time.
  • The jacket pipe contains occuring leaks.
  • The insulation keeps the fluid at the right temperature.
  • Intrusion alarm if 3rd party damages the jacket.

  • Our business partners deliver high quality and state of the art solutions. Constant real-life, pinpoint accuracy and as a bonus 3rd party damage alerts.

    “This system can save the world from another environmental disaster”

    Recent development

    Our value proposition - definitely a cost effective alternative to replacing your pipeline.

    Our retrofitting solution provides a solution that will reduce the OPEX and therefore pay for itself within few years after installation, both for oil and gas pipelines. ScanTECH’s on-site retrofitting principles with injected PUR insulation and the protective casing in permeable HDPE, permits building 100% water tight series.

    The insulation keeps the heated fluid efficiently, with low thermal losses along the whole run of the retrofitted pipeline.

    With our state-of-the-art mobile equipment, a complete pipe run including bends, elbows, valves and more can be on-site retrofitted anywhere around the world.
