Wind Secure to Attend AWEA Wind Project O&M and Safety Seminar 2015
February 2 - 3, 2015 Hotel Del Coronado, San Diego, California.
The AWEA Wind Project O&M and Safety Seminar is where leading owners, operators, turbine manufacturers, material suppliers, wind technicians, managers, supervisors, engineers, and occupational environmental, health and safety professionals come together to:
- Share the best strategies to manage wind project assets
- Analyze the environmental, health, and safety challenges workers face
- Learn about the future of the U.S. O&M market
- Network with top asset managers, OEMs, and vendors
Wind saved Great Lakes and Mid-Atlantic consumers $1 billion during last year’s polar vortex event according to analysis released today.
As extreme cold grips large chunks of the country this week, wind energy set record-high outputs, once again saving U.S. consumers money. Wind energy also saved consumers $1 billion in just two days when similar extreme cold hit the U.S. exactly one year ago, according to new data released today by the American Wind Energy Association (AWEA).
“This new data adds to the mountain of evidence showing why homegrown wind energy is one of this country’s most affordable and reliable sources of electricity,” said AWEA CEO Tom Kiernan. “We must not forget that wind energy can save consumers money.”
Here is a video of us dry ice cleaning corrosion from anchor bolts before applying Rust Bullet Rust inhibitor paint.
Physically bonded rust will be removed from steel, but the underlying chemically etched surface created by the rusting process will not be changed, leaving the steel surface clean but still pitted.
The same applies to corroded materials, for example, oil, grease and road dirt can be removed from an Aluminium engine block, but the corroded areas, generally caused by road salt, can still be identified after cleaning.
How good is Rust Bullet at protecting your anchor bolts? Watch this video and find out….Under
143,000lbs the Rust Bullet maintains its integrity. This coating is widely used by the US Navy for
protecting the United States fleet of ships, as well as countless shipyards, mines, factories and power
plants throughout the world. The beauty of using Rust Bullet for protecting your anchor bolts, is that
it solves every issue associated with conventional bolt covers and grease. Instead of only being able to
see a piece of plastic, which almost always conceal major issues with the bolts, the Rust Bullet allows for
100% visibility of your hardware. In addition to visibility, there are no messes, no bolt caps to remove
(which often have to be replaced after removal), and tensioning is a breeze. Contact Wind Secure for
more technical data on Rust Bullet.
Wind Secure Granted Rights to Patented Base Bolt Tensioning Process
A process for improving structural integrity of a structure is provided that includes retensioning a plurality of anchor bolts installed on the structure to a final load P, for each of a set of anchor bolts at a first time.
American wind power reaches major power generation milestones in 2013
Washington, D.C.- American wind power topped 4 percent of the U.S. power grid for the first time last year and has delivered 30 percent of all new generating capacity for the last five years. In Iowa and South Dakota, wind power now exceeds 25 percent of total electricity production. In nine states it provided more than 12 percent and in 17 states, more than five percent.
Wind power generated 4.13 percent of all the electricity in America in 2013 as the fifth largest electricity source in the U.S.
