7 meter (23 ft) diameter Clamshell Expansion Joint for Power Generating facility in Connecticut, USA
We have been awarded a contract for the design, manufacturing, testing and shipping of a large diameter Clamshell Expansion Joint for an 805-megawatt natural gas-fueled combined-cycle electric generating facility operating in the Woodruff Hill Industrial Park in Oxford, Connecticut, USA.
The facility will generate enough electricity to power nearly 800,000 homes, helping Connecticut to safely meet its demand for energy with reliable, cost-effective and environmentally responsible low emissions generation. This generating facility will lower overall emissions and improve the state’s environmental profile. Combining the most advanced generation technology available with clean natural gas and state-of-the-art emissions controls, the plant will be the cleanest, most efficient conventional generator in Connecticut once complete.
The Clamshell Expansion Joints of 7 meters (23 ft) diameter have been shipped in sections to be assembled at site.
