What Do Ship Welders Do?

Welders specialising in the maritime industry will be working primarily on large ships and vessels either at sea or in a shipyard. This can include new construction and repair work. Ship welders are responsible for creating secure welds in bulkheads, deck plating, boilers, structural supports, and pipes throughout a vessel. Maritime welding often requires a higher-than-average skill level as a poor weld can lead to ship damage.

What Type of Welding do Ship Welders Use?

There are several types of welding used in ships including: Shielded Metal Arc Welding (SMAW), Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW), Flux Cored Arc Welding (FCAW), Pulse Arc Welding (GMAW-P), Air Carbon Arc Gouging and more. Nearly all welding positions are used aboard a ship including: Horizontal (2G), Vertical (3G), and Overhead (4G). Welders should be proficient in stainless steel, carbon, and aluminum welding.
