Free from aggressive maintenance costs

 

Hot-dip galvanizing has provided steel corrosion protection for over half a century for structures used in the generation, transmission and distribution of energy from traditional power sources. As awareness and demand for renewable energy has grown, utilities will continue to receive pressure to provide a larger percentage of their electricity from renewable sources to reduce their carbon footprint.

As the construction of alternative energy facilities and the infrastructure accelerates, it is imperative that owners recognize the inevitability of corrosion and make intelligent economic and environmental decisions to protect these assets. The 100 percent recyclability, speed of application, aesthetic durability and no maintenance requirement, gives hot-dip galvanizing a significant advantage over any other corrosion protection method.
