Fusion reactor developers come to TWI for NDT trainingTWI Ltd (The Welding Institute)193, Great Abington, Cambridge, United Kingdom
Engineers from Fusion for Energy (F4E) came to TWI earlier this month for a four-day training workshop covering advanced non-destructive testing (NDT) techniques.
The bespoke course, which took place at TWI’s Great Abington headquarters, covered a broad range of NDT-related topics, including typical welding process faults, NDT procedure and report requirements, relevant standards, validation processes and personnel certification.
Fourteen engineers from F4E took part in the workshop, after the organisation approached TWI in search of training that would provide its personnel with a better understanding of some of the issues associated with advanced NDT inspection.
F4E is part of an international scientific experiment combining the expertise and resources of countries representing half the world’s population, seeking to develop viable fusion reactors.

TWI is a research and technology organisation specialising in joining, integrity management and materials technologies. It also delivers training and certification, and is the world’s largest provider of training in welding, welding inspection and non-destructive testing.
