RWE Dolgarrog – Field Joint Coating (Site Specific Project #1)

The pipes were consolidated into pipe dumps and strung out for field welding. Once welded and fully NDT tested, Pipeline Protection mobilised to grit blast and coat welded joints.

Pipeline Protection grit blasted the bare welded areas and applied a hot polyurethane coating, Versathane, to the field welds in accordance with the client specification.

The application equipment was trailer mounted and traversed the length of the 2 metre diameter pipeline coating each weld with 1500 microns of polyurethane.
