Wooden Penstock Repair

Owner: Public Service Company of New Hampshire
Location: Hillborough, NH

Jackson Hydro Station


Several older wood stave penstocks are still in service around New England. Fairbanks Mill, Inc. has extensive experience in the maintenance and repair of these unique structures. At Jackson Station a mid summer full load electrical trip led to a pressure wave “surge” that caused a full blown rupture. Fairbanks Mill, Inc. crews were quickly on site to commence repairs. After damaged components are removed, new staves are carefully fitted, cradles are replaced, and new steel bands are installed. The plant was put back in service in less than a week.
