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 22-23 October 2014.

The last delivery of the course in October 2013 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 (and a few horror stories!).

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

What they say about us:

“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 course organiser is planning an unmissable guest lecture from Jim McIlwrath, responsible for welding activities on Alstom power plants in the UK, on best practice with welding of P91 and similar alloys, including hands-on tips, dos and don’ts. This will be confirmed soon (watch this space).

The next course is scheduled for 22-23 October 2014 at TWI Cambridge, UK
