Keuka Energy Wind Towers
Year Galvanized: 2012
Galvanizer: Valmont Coatings, Tampa Galvanizing
Summary: In the early design, the wind towers were primed and painted. Keuka was unhappy with the results and corrosion potential. When looking for an alternative protective coating, consideration was given to the initial and life-cycle costs, corrosion performance, and durability. These towers would be assembled and placed in service in agricultural fields in rural Iowa. With corrosive chemicals and irrigation in use, one choice was clear: hot-dip galvanizing would meet the demands of the coating system they required.
