Power is primarily generated with a turbine driven by wind, water, steam, or gas. The turbine drives a generator that converts mechanical energy into electricity – accomplishing this on an industrial scale requires massive structures and support systems. Our products ensure the most important bolted connections in these systems remain safe and secure so that electricity can be provided with absolute reliability.
BULKHEAD SEAL JOINT
Located on the Columbia River in Washington, the Grand Coulee Dam is the largest hydropower facility in the United States with a total capacity of 6,809 MW. A project to modernize the pump-generating plant required the use of a bulkhead – a maintenance structure that keeps water out while the overhaul is completed.
