Effective onsite GEO Training at Leister India
At Leister, training is a continuous activity; actually, it is a way of life. As the technology leader in the industry we are committed to keeping ourselves up-to-date with technological advancements and industry best practices. In line with this basic philosophy, Leister Technologies India organized two very effective on-site training programs for our customers in the field of geomembrane welding.
Mr. Eddie Weiser, GEO Product Manager, Leister Technologies AG, who has traveled across the globe visiting geomembrane installation sites, visited India during April 2015 and conducted in-house training for Leister India staff and on-site training programs to the installation teams of our valuable customers. He was assisted by Mr. Sridhar, Mr. Jaganath and Mr. Arun Kumar Durai of Leister India.
The first on-site training was conducted in a Raw Water Reservoir project at Kakinada. The tasks included: welding under windy conditions, destructive testing of welded samples—as per ASTM standards―air pressure testing under hot & windy conditions as well as the impact of using very long cables while welding geomembranes.
The second on-site training was conducted at a Landfill Project at Pune. The key topics covered the testing of welded samples using a Leister EXAMO tensiometer, welding of bentonite sheets using hot air welding techniques, preparing of the geomembrane sheet before carrying out extrusion welding, etc.
We firmly believe in working closely with our customers to deliver the best quality at your job site and are ready to play our role in this endeavor. We are more than pleased to organize such onsite trainings for your Geomembrane installation teams which can help clarify your doubts and also implement some of the industry’s best practices.
