A delegation of lecturers from the Politeknik Negeri Manado University, headed by Vice Director for Academic Affairs Mareyke Alelo, paid a visit to TWI’s headquarters near Cambridge in October 2019 to get to know about TWI and what The Welding Institute has to offer.

The visitors were given a tour of TWI’s facilities and were briefed on the areas of TWI’s expertise. Neil Harrap, who hosted the visitors, delivered a presentation on the history of TWI and its longstanding expertise in the field of welding, joining and inspection.

The visitors enjoyed the tour and were impressed with TWI’s facilities and the wide range of its operations, from research and development to consultancy services and training.


Earlier this year, Husni Athaillah, the senior business development manager at TWI Indonesia visited Politeknik Negeri Manado University in Manado to inform them of the SEASEP initiative and investigate the possibility of collaboration.

The mission is set for TWI to support the mechanical engineering department of the university with setting up the welder training centre in accordance to TWI’s standards and, after conducting the ‘Train the Trainer’ programme, graduates from the welder training centre will be tested and certified under the CSWIP certification scheme.

The ‘Train the Trainer’ programme is funded by Lloyd’s Register foundation under the SEASEP initiative. The programme will target people who live in coastal areas and are involved with the maritime industry. The aim is to improve the competency and standard of performance for the staff employed by the industry in order to guarantee a higher level of safety as well as quality of life for the people involved in the projects.
