Hydroelectric Generation Overview
The unique requirements of hydroelectric plant construction require versatile solutions that meet demands both during initial plant construction, as well as future maintenance or expansion. Victaulic meets these needs, with easy-to-install, two-piece couplings for systems up to 60" in diameter, which require no hazardous flames to install, reduce construction footprint, and accommodate expansion, contraction and deflection of the joint in any weather condition. Victaulic also offers complete systems for utility and process piping. With quicker installation and a union at every joint, Victaulic will help you meet your bottom line throughout the life of the system.
