The DVS ZERT regularly supports the students of the DVS. This year the future engineers had the good fortune to travel to Norway. The destination of the excursion was "Aker Solutions" with 15,000 employees worldwide in Egersund, Norway. The company specialises in the oil and gas business in the offshore sector.
During their tour of the company, the students visited, among other things, a multi-storey segment of an oil rig or the enormous tower scaffolding used to secure such segments. Visitors were particularly impressed by the forming gas applications for large components made of chrome-nickel steels. The guided tour showed the practical application of theoretical content from the lectures.
But the natural beauties of the country were also closely examined during a hike. The DVS ZERT always provides incredibly interesting insights into the world of welding around the globe.
