The operating process was demonstrated on welding of 219-mm diameter pipes. Presented butt welding system significantly reduces the time of pipeline laying and prevents operator’s errors. The quality of the weld seam was examined with a portable ultrasonic testing system of weld seams.

After the equipment showcase, conference participants gave talks on the subjects of improving and implementing of the flash butt welding and non-destructive testing of pipes and weld seams made in field conditions during pipeline laying.
