Introducing … Our New Brand Image

QA Weld Tech

We are delighted to launch our new branding and website. The new and fresh image forms a key part of our strategic plans to diversify into new markets, including:

  • Petrochemical
  • Valves and pumps
  • Rail
  • Marine
  • Nuclear
  • Power generation

Three years ago, we put in place a strategy that has seen us invest heavily in facilities and personnel, developing our management team and systems to produce a more rounded company with a skill set that transfers readily across many industrial sectors.

We believe that our new, sleek and quality image very much represents the business that we are today, appealing to both our new and existing target markets.

As QA Weld Tech enters into these new sectors, we have ambitious plans to transfer our solid pedigree and reputation for delivering complex welding and fabrication services.

Start Safe, Keep Safe at QAWT

Safety is our most important KPI, and as a matter of course is discussed at the start of every day. Engagement with all of our employees is fundamental to ensure that safety standards are adhered to at all times to maintain a safe working environment for everyone at QA Weld Tech.

An integral part of preventing accidents is our Hazard Spotting and Near Miss Reporting process, which has contributed to achieving three years without a RIDDOR and keeps us on target to achieve two years since a lost time accident on the 7/5/17.

This process empowers all employees at QA Weld Tech to stop a job at any point if they feel it is unsafe, and progress to either fix or remove the hazard immediately, or indeed escalate the issue to their line manager if necessary when further help is required.

With both ISO 14001 and 18001 accreditations combined with over 500 hazards prevented in the last two years, we continuously demonstrate our ability to engage with our staff, as well as implement ongoing improvements to ensure our facilities are the safest they can possibly be for all workers.

Deep Ocean Project

QA Weld Tech’s plans to diversify into new fabrication markets has resulted in the company landing its first order – and already successfully deliver – with Deep Ocean, a Darlington based provider of subsea cable installation services.

The work involved modification of a carousel used to transport and unload subsea power cables linking offshore wind farms to the mainland. With an extremely tight 4-week schedule QA Weld Tech project managed material procurement, bending, fabrication and coating, enabling installation to go ahead as planned and the vessel returned into service.

Our Pressure Testing Capabilities

Hydrostatic pressure testing up to an impressive 1,500 bar (22,500 psi) to API and BS8010 can be carried out in our twin, individually certified pressure testing cells.

We invested in upgraded our pressure testing facilities in 2014 to meet the latest safety requirements featuring blast walls with ballistic certification, safety interlocks and remote video camera monitoring. Each cell measures 4m x 4m and a removable partition wall enables items up to 8m to be tested.

Our pressure testing bays are also available for use by third parties and if you would like any more information please do not hesitate to get in touch.

Our Involvement on the Taurus and Libra Development

BP’s Taurus and Libra subsea fields are situated offshore Alexandria, Egypt and part of the larger West Nile Development in water depths of approximately 800 metres.

QA Weld Tech’s involvement with the West Nile Development stretches back for over 10 years, supplying both Xmas tree and manifold flowbends, fully clad with Corrosion Resistant Alloy, to our client OneSubsea.

Our involvement in this $12 million-dollar project continues with our client Subsea 7, supplying parts for the gas export tie in structures, including 24” tie- in pieces, transition pieces, stress joints and pipeline end terminations.

A full scope of weld procedure qualification, test rings and welder qualification has preceded fabrication to ensure the stringent specifications and quality standards of the project are met.

With in-house facilities ranging from right from shot blasting, weld overlay and CNC machining, through to pressure testing and bespoke packaging, we are able to project manage a broad work scope and ensure delivery timescales are met.
