This power generating station (GS) is one of five thermal electricity generating stations in this area. Its two operating coal-fuelled generators produce up to 306 megawatts (MW) of electricity, using low-sulphur powder river basin sub-bituminous coal. The role of this station is to provide reliability during peak demand times and back up electricity generation when other sources are not available.
These expansion joints have been in service for over 30 years. They were finally replaced in 2013 and are examples of the long service life that is possible with Garlock quality rubber piping expansion joints.
Garlock Expansion Joints offer superior performance, reliability and service life. This results in an improvement in plant safety, an increase in the mechanical integrity of equipment and allows customers to gain a competitive advantage in the marketplace.
