The push for alternative energy sources has been gaining momentum in recent years. Wind power is one of the alternatives that is making a difference in Canada, as Canadian hydro-producing companies harness this vast body of clean energy.
Denso in Canada has been involved in this effort. Its anti-corrosion products provide protection to a large number of anchoring rebar rods that support a growing number of wind turbines placed strategically over 2,500 acres in central Ontario.
Denso priming solution, which contains moisture-displacing corrosion-inhibiting compounds, is applied to the anchor bolts at the manufacturing plant to avoid corrosion during shipping and installation in the field. Once onsite, the bolted rods are set into a concrete pad and then attached to the bottom cylindrical base. After each section has been bolted together, the turbine head itself, complete with three 50-foot blades, is mounted on top of the tower structure. Each turbine is then connected by heavy electrical cable.
This project has provided another unique opportunity for Denso’s anti-corrosion products to prove that, no matter which way the wind blows, it is there to protect the integrity of the structure for years to come.
With offices throughout the U.S. and Canada, including locations in Toronto and Edmonton, Denso North America offers a number of products designed for corrosion prevention and sealing. Contact Denso North America for details on its anti-corrosion products.
