East Setauket, NY (PRWEB) April 6, 2006
ICS Penetron International Ltd., a leader in integral crystalline waterproofing products, announced that Penetron Systems will be used on the Sayano-Shushenskaya hydroelectric power station.
The Sayano-Shushenskaya is the largest hydroelectric power station in Russia and features the third largest dam in the world. The dam is 240 meters high and 900 meters wide, with a capacity of 6400 megawatts. The project faced a typical problem—severe deterioration of the steel reinforcements in the concrete. Uralpromservice, the Penetron distributors in Russia came up with a detailed repair proposal and won the project.
Since then, the Penetron system has been used extensively on this project. In 2004 the powerhouse cable sections were repaired, in 2005 major work was done on reinforced concrete elements and 2006 will continue to see Penetron repairs on various sections of this project, including the flood-gates.
Based on Long Island, New York, ICS Penetron International is a leading manufacturer of integral crystalline waterproofing products with a sales and service network that extends across more than 60 countries. With a strong commitment to exceptional service, superior support and high technical standards, Penetron is under continuous refinement through the integration of the latest materials research, sales and service techniques, as well as through continuous feedback from all aspects of the construction industry.
