Last week’s massive storm caused We Energies to ask customers to lower their thermostats due to a problem with their delivery system. This emphasizes our dependence on pipelines to heat our homes and fuel our vehicles. In this video from Building Wisconsin TV, we show how pipelines keep things moving in Wisconsin and throughout the US. Host Stuart Keith meets with Ron Spoerl from Hawk Industries to learn about reclamation and safety, Trent Wetmore from Enbridge shows how pumping stations operate, Bob Osborn from Michels Corporation talks about pipeline construction and Joel Zielke from Steamfitters Local 601 explains the training and pathway to becoming a pipeline welder, also known as a Rig Welder.
