The main welding processes in use (qualified acc. to EN ISO 15614-1/ EN 288-3) are: uipment consists of:
SMAW/ E-Hand (111 – Metal arc welding with covered electrode)
SAW/ UP (121 – Submerged-arc welding with one wire electrode),
GMAW/ MIG-MAG (131/135 – Metal inert/ active gas welding),
GTAW/ TIG (141 – Tungsten inert gas welding),
FCAW/ Flux (136 – Tubular cored metal arc welding with active gas shield).
The welders are qualified and certified in accordance with EN 287-1/EN 1418 and the two welding coordinators have diplomas of international welding engineers. A laser instrument – Easy-LaserÒ D670 made by Damalini AB Sweden – is available as a measurement equipment for welded structures.

In the Corrosion Protection workshop – main facilities are: abrasive blast-cleaning with shots/grits or sand (a new cabin of 18x6x6m) (preparation grade Sa 2 ½ is inspected visually and the surface profile/ roughness is graded/ determined by the means of ISO comparator and replica tape method) and coating application by spraying using airless spray installation and painting guns. A new painting cabin (12x5x5m) is installed. Ambient conditions (humidity, surrounding air and surface temperature, dew point) are monitored with adequate instruments. Coatings are checked by visual assessment and dry film thickness is measured at each critical stage with a digital apparatus. Also the device for cross-cut test is available in order to verify the resistance of paint coating. The painting area is in-door, it is heated if required and equipped with exhausting system to ensure proper conditions for this process.
