Building a bespoke welding habitat for a pipeline

6 July 2017


Getting a welding habitat welders are happy with is not as easy as you might think. So, in typical IPWL style, we had a go at building our own! Here is the result - a bespoke welding habitat for Firefly orbital welding machine and the related welding equipment such as inverters, wire feeders and heat induction kit.

The video stream shows a timeline from building the frame, installing the fixings, extractors, panels, bashering and so on, to sign writing in the company's livery. It's then loaded and rolling off to site!

Firefly is primarily intended as an orbital welding system for pipeline welding applications in the oil, gas and water industries. As well as pipeline projects, Firefly has also been used for other projects such as wind turbine jacket manufacture and the manufacture of landing legs for jack-up vessels. Firefly can be used where there is a high degree of weld repeatability - linear and orbital and in all gravity positions.

Firefly is available to purchase or systems can be rented with, or without, an operator. Help is also available with weld procedures and welder qualifications. Full installation, training and support is available.
