HDG Renewable Energy
Renewable energy provides clean, sustainable power for many different industries and is becoming an increasingly popular alternative to traditional energy. Renewable energy such as solar, wind, and hydro-electricity are expected continuously to grow because of tax incentives and the nations growing interest in maintaining an environmentally conscious society. As the renewable industry grows, one critical component remains constant corrosion protection. For more than 75 years, hot-dip galvanized (HDG) steel has played an integral role in the corrosion protection of structures in the power generation industry.
This 6-page handout details the advantages of using hot-dip galvanized steel to protect renewable energy equipment from corrosion in a sustainable and maintenance-free manner (includes case studies).
