Weldable structural steels for fixed offshore structures - Technical delivery conditions - Part 2: Sections
|Publication Date:||1 October 2017|
|ICS Code (Heat-treatable steels):||77.140.10|
This part of EN 10225 specifies requirements for weldable structural steels to be used in the fabrication of fixed offshore structures in the form of sections (e.g. H-, I-, Z-sections, U-channels, angles and tees) excluding hollow sections. The thickness limitation in this standard is up to and including 63 mm. For steel qualities with mechanical properties in the transverse direction (named xL2O) sections with flange widths smaller than 180 mm and channels with flange smaller widths than 90 mm cannot be ordered. Greater thicknesses may be agreed, provided the technical requirements of this European Standard are maintained. The standard is applicable to steels for offshore structures, designed to operate in the offshore sector but not to steels supplied for the fabrication of subsea pipelines, risers, process equipment, process piping and other utilities. It is primarily applicable to the North Sea Sector, but may also be applicable in other areas provided that due consideration is given to local conditions e.g. temperature.
