NEW UNDERWATER WELDING PROCESS PROVED FOR CONTINENTAL SHELF DEPTHS

The paper describes a new flux-cored wire arc welding process which has been developed for use in underwater welding inside ambient pressure dry welding chambers. The process offers good arc stability and fusion characteristics, high metal depositions are provided at the arc. The process has been successfully used offshore in the North Sea, and represents a significant advance in the field of subsea welding.
