A Danish shipyard specializing in tanker construction has acquired water injection plasma cutting equipment. The cost of cutting by this method is relatively low and the cut edge requires no further preparation. Cutting speeds are higher. The equipment is fitted to a numerical control installation and uses a specially designed transformer rectifier. The torch can cut metal 3-75 mm thick. The plate preparation shop has seven other oxyfuel cutting torches. The hull blocks are assembled by submerged arc welding.
