The shipbuilding industry faces stiff cost competition. Many manufacturers have already migrated to the better-cost countries, making it all the more important to have a gases partner with global solution delivery capabilities.
At the same time, productivity and quality remain key success factors in ship building. Innovative gas-enabled welding technologies can, for example, improve quality and save significant amounts of time and money by reducing the effects of weld distortion.
We deliver a wide variety of applications to enhance ship fabrication. These have been shown to enhance quality and improve productivity. We also deliver the process innovations required to make high-strength steel – increasingly used for double-walled tankers in the fast-growing liquefied natural gas (LNG) shipping business, for instance. Regardless of your individual needs, we have an extensive network of engineers to help you find the solution that best meets your productivity, quality and cost requirements. We back up our extensive product, equipment and supply system portfolio with a wide service offering. This includes safety training to ensure that all the gases you need are installed and handled properly. Plus you can always rely on us for global delivery capabilities.
