Fri, 10 January, 2020

On 27 and 28 November 2019, TWI India conducted a CSWIP Visual Welding Inspection (3.0) programme at M/s Larsen & Toubro Ltd, Construction division, Chennai. A total of 33 engineers, responsible for welding and quality, participated in the programme which was inaugurated by Mr. M. Balasubramanian, Head of Quality (B&F). Our Mr. Ravi Rajarao Chief Manager (Welding), Mr. Rakesh Subramanian (Lecturer) and Mr. Santosh Kumar Bingi (Lecturer) were the faculty members who handled this programme.

Larsen & Toubro Ltd is a leading construction company who have completed many prestigious projects in India and abroad. They employ a huge amount of welding in their construction and erection work and also employ a number of welding personnel. It is needless to emphasise the importance of achieving consistent quality levels in these construction activities and the importance of having trained, certified personnel for these activities. Keeping these in mind, L&T had planned to train and upskill their personnel and this task was taken up very effectively by Dr. M.Venkatesan, DGM, QA/QC who coordinated this programme from end to end.

This two-day programme generated lot of interest among the participants, which was evident from the lively discussions during the sessions. As per the course guidelines, the programme concluded with an examination on the third day and all the participants took the examination with full enthusiasm. The relevance and the usefulness of this programme to L&T’s personnel can be gauged by the fact they have planned for another programme in the coming months. TWI India would like to take the opportunity to thank M/s Larsen & Toubro for giving them an opportunity to be a part of L&T’s efforts to produce trained, certified inspection personnel and wish them all success in their efforts.

TWI India organises these programmes in association with the Lloyd’s Register Foundation and covers a number of other fields like NDT, safety, etc.
