TransKapitalStroy at welding production conference
TransKapitalStroy participated in the 7th trade conference "Status and development trends of welding production of ОАО "Gazprom", which was held on November 10-14, 2014 at "Gazprom VNIIGAZ". The meeting was attended by over 250 participants representing more than 150 organizations from 8 countries, including the largest gas transmission companies of the "Gazprom" group, leading Russian research centres and universities, foreign and domestic enterprises from the pipe industry, as well as suppliers of welding equipment and materials.
The extensive meeting program included a plenary session and exhibition named "Welding consumables, equipment and technologies", a demonstration program in "Gazprom VNIIGAZ" experimental centre, a thematic "round table" on current issues in the process of certification of welding production, namely exams for the eligibility to participate in the work of the preparation and certification of welders, a technological tour of the tomography lab of the Mytischinsky Research Institute of Radio Measuring Devices.
During the meeting participants discussed the results of the qualification testing of non-destructive quality control tools of circular welded joints. The tests were conducted in order to verify the technical characteristics of test installations and determine their compliance with the requirements of regulatory and technical documentation of ОАО "Gazprom". The joint work of builders, scientists, experts in the field of software and hardware tools resulted in the development of an improved system of evaluation of circular welded joints of gas trunk pipelines.
TransKapitalStroy demonstrated 7 new welding technologies developed for ОАО "Gazprom", as well as innovative non-destructive testing equipment and automatic ultrasonic testing systems.
Such a sectoral meeting on welding equipment is an important measure to implement a unified technical policy in the field of welding production of ОАО "Gazprom", which allows the participants to get acquainted with domestic and international achievements and share experiences in the field of advanced technology of welding and related processes in the construction, operation and maintenance of gas production and transporting facilities.
