Cutting fit for a Queen

ESAB Group : 12 March, 2002  (New Product)
ESAB Cutting Systems is making a major contribution to the building of the largest, most expensive passenger liner in history. Cunard's Queen Mary 2 is one of the most important industrial projects of this century and she enters in service in 2004. She was constructed by Alstom Chantiers de l'Atlantique in France and has an extra thick steel hull for Atlantic crossings. The hull has been cut with ESAB's Telerex cutting machines equipped with plasma and oxy-fuel cutting heads as well as a plasma marking facility.
