PipeLine Machinery, Caterpillar team to supply equipment to China and South America.

PipeLine Machinery International (PLM) recently delivered 20 Caterpillar 320D excavators and four D7G tractors to Lanfang, China for deployment on China Petroleum Pipeline Bureau (CPPB) projects. The contract for the equipment resulted from the team effort of PLM, Caterpillar Asia-Pacific District and WesTrac China, Caterpillar's north and northeast China local dealership.


PipeLine Machinery recently became Caterpillar's newest and first dealership without geogpraphic borders. As a kickoff to the new dealership, the first machine sales for PLN in South America were for two 583R pipelayers. PLM's presence in South America has continued to expand since May 2005.

Also, in late 2005 PLM shipped 18 pipelayers to Brazil. The machines were initially deployed for Phase II of the Malha Nordeste Pipeline and the Campinas Rio pipelines that are part of the Gasene Pipeline project designed to transport natural gas through 850 miles of pipeline to the country's northeast and southeast regions. The $6.5 billion Gasene project is slated for completion later this year.
