voestalpine Tubulars GmbH & Co KG

We save over 1,000 tons of CO2

For voestalpine Tubulars, ÖBB Rail Cargo Group (RCG) transports more than 700,000 tons every year - from the delivery of the primary material to the shipment of the finished high-tech pipes - in an environmentally friendly manner by rail.

voestalpine Tubulars manufactures high-tech seamless tubes that prove themselves under the toughest conditions. Such tubes were used, for example, as tunnel anchors in the construction of the Semmering Base Tunnel. RCG and voestalpine Tubulars have been partners for over 40 years. In addition to the starting material, the finished tubes are also transported.

It all starts in Styria. RCG transports the prefabricated raw material from the steel mill in Leoben to the Tubulars plant in Kindberg. Every year this amounts to between 300,000 and 400,000 tons of prefabricated material in round trips with three to four block trains per week. Once the tubes have been produced, they are loaded onto the trains and travel from Kindberg to the northern and Mediterranean ports - from the Austrian border these transports are carried out in cooperation with partners.

From there, the pipes continue their journey all over the world.
