Steel Penstock Replacement
CERTIFIED WELDING

Owner: Citizens Utilities, Inc.
Location: Newport, VT

The Waterbury DamNEWPORT HYDRO STATION

A seam rupture during a full load rejection shutdown resulted in the decision to replace a portion of the 60+ year old penstock. Approximately 200 feet of new 54 inch diameter steel pipe was installed. As this repair was under FERC mandate, there were rigorous compliance standards for the project including confined space entry, materials specs, soil compaction, and quality control. Weld procedures were in conformance with ASME pressure vessel specs with 100% x-ray weld inspections.
