... galvanize the plant's 10,000 tons (9,072 tonnes) of steel.
This power plant includes a turbine building and two coal-fired boilers. Based on the high potential of corrosion, the owner reconsidered the option of painting and opted to galvanize the plant's 10,000 tons (9,072 tonnes) of steel. Hot-dip galvanizing meant a durable corrosion prevention system during shipping and erection, requiring minimal touch-up, thus cost and time savings. In addition, the life-cycle cost of galvanizing was an impressive 84% less than the life-cycle cost of the alternative two-coat shop-applied paint system.
