Fabrication of the top of a 930 ft. elevator shaft reline (92 shells x 14’ – 6’’ dia. x 10 ft. long.) Starting from the bottom the shells are more heavily constructed and as we get nearer the surface the shell thickness lessens as do the number of external stiffener rings. The average weight per shell thru the first 30 has been about 46,000 lbs.
Kubes Steel fabricated a series of draft tube liners (also known as penstocks) for the Cannelton Hydroelectric project located on the Ohio River. Each assembled section is 30 feet in diameter and 60 feet long. When completed, water from the Ohio River will be directed through the penstocks to the turbines, which will turn generators and produce approximately 88 Megawatts of electricity. The project adjoins the existing Cannelton Locks and Dam in Kentucky.
