Power Generation: Adapting to New Labor Demands in Power Plant Construction

The PipeWorx 350 FieldPro system has helped Boilermakers Local 92 train members in easier-to-learn and more productive advanced wire welding processes which, in turn, have helped the union meet the increasing demand for skilled workers on a wider variety of jobsites in southern California and southern Nevada.
