Hydro-Electric turbine work

Hydro electric turbines we machine and refurbish components or build new ones.  In place alignment of large turbines with our laser tracker equipment.  Verify valve seats and rebuild valves that don’t leak.  We have the craftsmen machinists, welders, and millwrights that are experienced and safety oriented.
