Firefly was chosen by Macaw Engineering to develop a mechanised weld procedure for heavy wall hot tap split tee longitudinal seam welds for National Grid. As well as demonstrating a cost benefit, Firefly’s quicker weld times helped to reduce the welder’s exposure to hazardous fume and arc radiation whilst welding in a confined working environment.
