OVERPIPE offers high-quality HDPE plate that provide safety of underground networks like High-Pressure pipeline, Medium-Pressure pipeline, High-Voltage electricity grids, etc. This is a major breakthrough to protect pipelines from third-party interference damage as it acts as a physical barrier. In addition, plates lend mechanical protection and underground network safety. Works by third parties represent the greatest danger for underground pipelines, causing approximately 40% of accidents.
OVERPIPE plates are fully compliant with French regulations regarding mechanical protection (GESIP guides 2008/02). They provide a risk reduction factor (0.01) equivalent to that of concrete slabs (GESIP guide 2008/01). OVERPIPE plates for underground pipeline protection and high voltage electrical networks are quick and easy to install. The plates act as an impenetrable barrier and protect buried networks from the impact of the excavator bucket. OVERPIPE is a subsidiary of the Joubeaux family group, founded in 1988. One of the group’s main activities involves civil engineering works around pipelines.
OVERPIPE came about following a request by GDF Suez, which was looking for innovative solutions for mechanical protection against risks from third party interference (more than 40% of the total accidents on underground pipelines). The development of demand and the widening of the range led to the creation in 2014 of a dedicated structure. The head office is located close to Aix en Provence (France).
OVERPIPE products are generally created following a request from a customer, whether it be the protection of underground pipelines and networks, or slabs for transformer substations. OVERPIPE handles the design, testing, certification and patents.
OVERPIPE also owns the moulds and dedicated tools for production. Production is carried out through exclusive long-term agreements with the most technologically advanced factories, in order to ensure the specifications are met. Of course, OVERPIPE is responsible for quality control, logistics and the administrative chain. OVERPIPE is led by Yannick Joubeaux. He coordinates all activities of the company: design, production, sales, administration, and to do so he has the support of highly qualified specialist teams. OVERPIPE naturally benefits from all the resources of the Joubeaux group.
OVERPIPE is dedicated exclusively to the issue of safety in the industrial environment. Its role is to provide innovative solutions in the form of finished products meeting the needs and the specifications of its customers. There are 6 stages involved in the OVERPIPE procedure:
- Identifying The Problem And Producing Specifications.
- Selecting The Appropriate Technology Through In-depth Sourcing.
- Carrying Out The Necessary Studies Leading To Technical And Economic Validation.
- Carrying Out The Necessary Tests To Obtain Validation Of The Solution By The User.
- Industrialisation And Marketing Of The Product.
- Ensuring The Compliance Of Our Products Through An Effective Quality System.
