Overcoming the complexities of industrial gas turbine rotor repair

The power generation industry is under constant pressure to meet fluctuating energy requirements due to variable renewable energy demands. Because of this, combined cycle plants are growing in size and number and have become the primary source for stable power production. Industrial gas turbines operating in these environments require periodic repairs, a task that calls […]

Using bird-resistant insulators on high-voltage transmission lines

Ararat Wind Farm, Australia’s third largest wind farm, uses enhanced silicone polymer (ESP) insulators on the 132 kV powerline to reduce weight, improve speed of installation and increase span lengths. These insulators are also bird resistant which is critical because the powerline is located in a high bird strike zone. The Ararat wind farm, which […]
