Energy T&D Resilience: Hot-Dip Galvanizing Shields Infrastructure, Saves Resources

AZZ Banner Ad


Hot-dip galvanizing (HDG) is an essential technique for protecting steel structures from corrosion, a process that not only extends the life of such infrastructure but also significantly impacts environmental sustainability by reducing the demand for new raw materials. Recent advancements have refined this method, optimizing the zinc coating’s durability and enhancing its protective properties by controlling factors like the steel’s chemical composition and the zinc bath’s alloy mix.​ These improvements are crucial in ensuring that structures, especially in transmission and distribution (T&D) infrastructure, withstand the test of time and harsh environmental conditions.

As industries strive to balance robust infrastructure needs with environmental conservation, what are the most effective strategies to enhance the longevity of steel structures while minimizing environmental impact?

Jason Huang, the Founder & CEO of TS Conductor, shares his take on leveraging advanced materials and technologies. He suggests that the key is not just in selecting the right materials like hot-dip galvanizing, but also in employing innovative maintenance strategies that extend the lifecycle of these crucial infrastructures.

“When these structures are able to be leveraged for a longer time, you are helping the environment because you are using less amount of steel material,” Huang said.
