BUILDING PENSTOCK? REQUIRES HUGE DAVI PLATE ROLL POWER!

To build very high strength steel penstock, it requires a very powerful plate roll.

To handle this type of major project in Portugal; the Austrian company ANDRITZ has purchased a DAVI plate roll machine with capacity for 10’ x 5”. It is a 4 roll machine which will be used to bend S 690 high resistance steel plates up to 20’ diameter.

The plate roll was recently installed on the production site and began to produce the sections of what will be one of the largest European hydroelectric projects of the last 30 years.
