Hydroelectric Dam Gates
Galvan Industries has been chosen to protect the steel used in custom-designed replacement head gates and spillway gates for a hydroelectric dam in Western North Carolina. Made from heavy-duty steel and hot dip galvanized to prevent damage from corrosion, the new gates and supporting structural steel will add years of life and improved performance to the existing dam.

Thanks to its use of naturally occurring zinc metal, 100% recyclability, speed of application, delivery to the job site, aesthetic durability, and decades of service life without maintenance, hot-dip galvanized steel from Galvan Industries delivers unparalleled performance over other corrosion protection methods for energy producers.

Utilizing hot-dip galvanized steel in biofuel, wind, hydroelectric, and solar structures not only protects them from the effects of corrosion, but also is highly sustainable and earth-friendly.
