HYDRO POWER

Hydropower, or hydro energy, is a form of renewable energy that uses the water stored in dams, as well as flowing in rivers to create electricity in hydropower plants. Hydropower, or hydroelectric power, is one of the oldest and largest sources of renewable energy, which uses the natural flow of moving water to generate electricity. As of 31 March 2020, India's installed utility-scale hydroelectric capacity was 46,000 MW, or 12.3% of its total utility power generation capacity.

For nearly all kinds of bolt connections & parts in this industrial area roll-fast delivers bolts & components as well as corresponding hydraulic parts or engineering designing bolted joints. Three main types of turbines are used based on the capacity and height difference of the water: francis, pelton and kaplan. We provide all types of bolts & parts for all turbines.

Typical applications for Fasteners are in

  • Water power stations
  • Pumped storage hydro power plants
  • Tidal power plants
  • Hydro turbines
  • Generators
  • Low, mid and high-pressure pumps or pump stations
  • Turbines

What are the Benefits of Hydro Power?

The benefits of hydropower have been recognized and harnessed for thousands of years. In addition to being a clean and cost-effective form of energy, hydropower plants can provide power to the grid immediately, serving as a flexible and reliable form of backup power during major electricity outages or disruptions. Hydropower also produces several benefits outside of electricity generation, such as flood control, irrigation support, and water supply.

The specifics

The alternative energy applications require large diameter fasteners –

  • Large Diameter High Strength Hex Head Cap Screws & Bolts
  • Carriage Bolts
  • Flange Screws
  • All Metal Lock Nuts
  • Nylon Insert Lock Nuts

In terms of coatings and protection for these fasteners, an appropriate option for Hydro renewable energy applications could be Zinc Flake Coating. This coating, offered by Roll-fast , includes protection against saltwater and harsh environments.
