Expansion of Butt Fusion Welding Range

Union Global is proud to announce the addition of a new welding machine to its growing fleet. The machine, a Hiweld HW 2200 expands the welding capability of Union Global from a maximum size of 1200mm to 2200mm. To date Union Global has 20+ machines for rental and use within its own works.

Currently the machine is deployed in the Sultanate of Oman where it is welding 1.8 and 2 metre intake and outfall pipes as part of a desalination plant project.  The machine is so large that it requires a  full-time crane on hand at all time to move the pipes, heater and facer.

Hatem Darwish, Managing director of Union Global, was present during the commissioning of the machine and stated “Our new Hiweld 2200 butt fusion welding machine provides us with a significant uplift in our capabilities and we are confident it will enable us to support the market  for larger pipe welding projects”
