The next TWI training course on low-alloy and high Cr steels (from 0.5% Cr to P91, P91, P122 and X20) is scheduled for 15-16 May 2013.


The last course in May 2012 was attended by welding engineers, materials engineers and welding inspectors from the power and process sectors and covered a range of topics such as welding, dissimilar welds, weld repairs, codes and standards issues, as well as a range of case studies.


Jim Mcilwrath, responsible for welding activities on Alstom power plants in the UK, featured as a special guest and delivered an unmissable lecture on best practice with welding of P91 and similar alloys. Following the enthusiastic response from the course attendees, TWI will make such lectures a permanent feature of the course.


The course is lectured by Marcello Consonni, TWI Welding Engineer and by Gene Mathers, a welding engineer who was involved with the very first P91 header ever welded in Europe!


What the course attendees said:

“I liked the presentation by Alstom, very close to reality” – Welding Coordinator

“Pleasant atmosphere, good lecturers” – Lead Welding Engineer

“I found the course informative and well presented” – Senior Welding Inspector


The next course is scheduled for 15-16 May 2013 at TWI Cambridge, UK.
