Weld-Con is an established and well recognized organization amongst the upstream and downstream Oil & Gas companies operating within the East and Central African region, each of whose professional approval has enabled us to remain a leading company within the sector.
As the region emerges as a crude oil and gas exporter Weld-Con has been involved in the specialized fabrication of complex structural modules, tanks and other vessels for the oil fields for clients such as Kenya Pipeline Company, Total, Vivo Energy, Halliburton, Schlumberger, Kenya Petroleum Refineries and many more to mention as indicated under this section.
Weld-Con has gained vast experience in the field of power station installations ranging from large diesel and HFO engines, steam and gas turbines setups and geothermal power stations.
Weld-Con’s experience, infrastructure and capacity enables us to take on sizeable projects of this kind, thus feeding the growing demand for energy in these economies, which strive for economic growth and industrial modernization.
Weld-Con’s growing experience in this sector is visible through the construction of over 300 bulk liquid storage tanks in the last 35 years throughout East and Central Africa. The largest tank that we have constructed to date is for Vivo Energy (A subsidiary of Shell) and measures 42m in diameter and 18m height. This tank was then fitted with an Aluminium geodesic dome roof by us.With untethered experience under our belt we are able to construct any size tank for your project.
With a large fleet of heavy duty cranes and one of the very few companies owning hydraulic tank jacking equipment, no tank is too big for us. We are able to construct large storage facilities in extremely remote areas and dare to go to where others would not. Quality and efficiency are the core deliverables of all our work.
From the inception of Weld-Con in 1986, piping has always been a key division in our organization.
Our skilled team of pipe layers and welders have been involved in large piping projects in power stations, fuel Oil depots/refineries, edible oil refineries and off shore piping. Having done these types of projects for over 35 years, Weld-Con realizes the importance of safety and having a minimal impact on the rural areas and local communities.
Over the years we have gained the reputation as specialists in EPC of Airport fuel hydrant systems, in plant and cross country piping. Weld-Con has executed successfully both aircraft fuel hydrant systems for Jomo Kenyatta International Airport Nairobi and Julius Nyerere International Airport Dar es Salaam. Weld-Con was also involved in the commissioning of both systems.
Over the years not only have we become a specialist in the construction of new tanks, but we have overhauled and repaired just as many older tanks as per API 653 Tank repair code.
We have our own in-house API 653 tank inspector coupled with all the tank inspection equipment enabling us to study the integrity and corrosion levels of an existing tank and carry out the necessary repair work.
Across the spectrum of industries that Weld-Con has worked in be it petrochemical plants, power stations, oil and gas or mining, edible oil refineries, heavy lifting support is required at all stages of construction, maintenance and in emergency works.
Weld-Con has a large modern fleet of lifting equipment from cranes ranging from 25T all the way up to 140T. Additionally we have developed the expertise to carry out complicated gantry type lifts for large equipment and setting in place using jack and slide technology.
Weld-Con’s heavy lifting division are able to support our clients in every major industrial sector. With a combination of specialized equipment and experienced team, we are able to help our clients benefit with our services. Our main aim during a lifting study and procedure is to ensure that the work is done safely whilst shortening the critical path resulting in facilities coming into production, returning to service on schedule.
Wherever large, heavy and out of gauge equipment or components need to be lifted, Weld-Con can supply the equipment, expertise and experience to do the job safely and efficiently.
