Sypris Technologies, Inc., a subsidiary of Sypris Solutions, Inc. has recently received an order for its Tube Turns® Tool-less® closures. Production will begin immediately and is expected to be completed prior to year-end. Terms of the purchase were not disclosed.

Brett Keener, General Manager of Sypris Technologies, commented: "This is another good example of a project that leverages our extensive experience in engineering high-quality closures for the demanding requirements to continually support major energy projects around the globe. We are proud to be a part of enhancing energy infrastructure with these types of important global projects."

The Tube Turns Tool-less closure has been chosen for the Alberta XPress Project (AXP). According to the project website, AXP will utilise existing capacity on the Great Lakes Gas Transmission (GLGT) system and American Natural Resources (ANR) pipeline system, with facility expansions taking place along ANR’s Southeast Mainline (SEML). The combined effort will result in an addition of 165 000 Dth/d of incremental firm transmission capacity from the GLGT Emerson receipt point in Manitoba to delivery locations along ANR’s SEML in the Midwestern and Southern US.

As part of the ANR expansion, a new compressor station will be built in Evangeline Parish, Louisiana. This project has an estimated cost of US$300 million for compressor station and pipeline modifications to increase the performance of the system which will serve the rising demand for natural gas on the US Gulf Coast and beyond. The Gulf Coast is the principal area in the US for LNG export terminals. These closures will be up to 58 in. in diameter and rated to a pressure of 1000 psi.
