The key facts 
EUGAL, the European gas connection pipeline: The most important new construction project in Central Europe - approx. 485 km in length - DN 1400
- Secures natural gas supply between Germany, the Czech Republic and Poland in parallel to OPAL
- Project sponsor: GASCADE, a BASF and GAZPROM company
Largest contract for DEKOTEC GmbH: Three quarters of the joints are protected using the BUTYLEN-N60/-S20 and DEKOMAT® wrapping machines

DEKOMAT®-11 wrapping machine

For the first time, automatic wrapping is specified for the EUGAL project. The DEKOMAT®-11 machine is ideal for this purpose, with optimal wrapping quality at maximum speed. The two-tape system works in just one step. Take a look at the quick and precise application in the video here.

BUTYLEN-N60/-S20 tape system 

Due to the unique protection based on 40 years of proven durability, BUTYLEN-N60/-S20 tapes are used for EUGAL. The three-layer tapes fuse together completely and therefore offer permanent hose protection – impressively demonstrated in large projects such as OPAL and MONACO.
