Fusion Marine, one of the world's leading suppliers of fish farming equipment, recently
invested in some essential training from TWI to ensure its products are constructed
and maintained to the highest standards and any costly and unnecessary flaws in
fabrication are avoided.
Fusion Marine offers a one-stop-shop for the aquaculture industry, and as well as
fish farm pens, supplies moorings, pontoons, anti-predator equipment, live fish
transfer systems, feeding systems and hatcheries.

training to ensure quality control and best practice has increased. TWI, as a world
expert in the field of plastics welding, was asked to train its workers on Hot Gas

role-specific competence for people engaged in welding, joining, materials integrity
and inspection. CSWIP certification schemes are UKAS-accredited to ISO/IEC 17024,
the international standard for personnel certification. Armed with these certifications,
Fusion Marine can demonstrate the competency of its welders and therefore its products,

completion by all six fabricators resulted in CSWIP qualification aligned to BS
