Offshore platforms are highly complex structures exposed to severe forces and weather conditions. From design to commissioning, welding plays a critical role in ensuring the structural integrity and safety of offshore rigs. These massive structures rely on welding technologies to produce safe joints in conditions where one bad weld can cause devastating consequences, depending on the criticality of the weld. Therefore, welding process selection, weld application, and inspection quality are the key aspects of ensuring structural integrity in offshore platforms.
