Pipe corrosion caused by the marine environment and seawater is one of the largest concerns of ship owners and crews. Pipes corroded under such conditions require time and money for maintenance and replacement.
Conducting ship retrofitting with HGP Series GRE/GRP pipes is by far the most efficient and economical solution, and the application to the SOx Scrubber Systems and Ballast Systems (Ballast Line & Ballast Water Treatment Systems) has equal or larger economic benefits in installation costs compared to steel pipes.

Implementing ship retrofits to comply with IMO SOx emission regulations and adopting Ballast Water Treatment Systems to prevent ecosystem disturbance with HGP Series GRE/GRP pipes will allow customers to enjoy an economical and efficient result.

HLB is currently meeting ship owners‘ needs and requirements in the ship retrofitting market with its vibrant activities and production, including a broad range of services such as design, production and adjustment work.
