Lincoln Electric products have been utilised on countless pipeline projects throughout the years.
“Lincoln Electric equipment, consumables, process innovations and application solutions have been used on thousands of major pipeline projects around the world. Several well-known projects, such as the Alaska Pipeline and the West-East China Project (WEPP 1 & WEPP II), Langled Underwater Pipeline (largest ever under water), and the BTC project have all used Lincoln Electric products,” Mr Sumner says.
In addition, the company offers a wide array of products and application solutions specifically engineered and designed to address the welding challenges faced by pipeline construction and maintenance contractors. The company also provides welding training to pipeline contractors focused on productivity improvements, safety, quality and efficiency.
One of the main changes in operations over the last ten years for the company has been its international growth – with expanded operations and manufacturing into countries such as China, India, Brazil and Russia.
The company also has a focus on specialised consumables for high-strength and other alloyed materials through the acquisition of companies like Techalloy and Weartech, as well as increased capabilities in the area of systems automation with the recent additions of Arc Products and Wayne Trail.
