Sandvik has won a contract to supply seamless coiled tubing made from its SAF 2507®super duplex stainless steel to a geothermal plant in Central America. 

The contract marks the first use of SAF 2507® for the geothermal industry in Latin America.

SAF 2507® has numerous benefits, including very high resistance to pitting and crevice corrosion, excellent resistance to stress corrosion cracking in chloride-bearing environments and high resistance to general corrosion in acids. It also has excellent resistance to erosion corrosion and corrosion fatigue, a high mechanical strength and good weldability.

Sandvik is a supporter of the geothermal industry. It is committed to using engineering and innovation for more sustainable business and believes one of the many ways to pursue sustainability is through natural and renewable energy sources, including geothermal energy.
