Power Generation

Power Generation Projects:

Kubes Steel’s testing and certification service means you can rest assured that your job will be done to your exact specifications and parts will be received ready to use. We recently engineered and built this custom 16′ x 16′ platform to test 53′ long custom articulating fabrications weighing 53,000 lbs.

The custom fabrication job for these pipe assemblies required press brake work, plate rolling and welding to bring all the pieces together. After finishing at the paint booth, they will ship direct to the building site.

Kubes Steel is custom fabricating these leading and trailing edges for Stay Vanes out of carbon steel. Used in hydro power generation, these vanes assist to optimize the water flow and reduce turbulance for turbines. The smaller trailing vanes are multipiece construction; 2 pieces are welded together and then machined down. Each part has been custom made…
