Lightweight Fiberglass Shelters Installed at Indiana Power Facility

Fortune 500 company, Duke Energy is one of one of the largest electric power companies in the United States. The company generates electricity in locations ranging from the Midwest to the Carolinas.

The company needed to construct new monitoring shelters to track flue gas emissions produced at the Gallagher Generating Station in New Albany, Indiana. The new buildings had to be lightweight to be assembled on top of existing structures. Strongwell’s DURASHIELD® Foam Core Building Panels and EXTREN® fiberglass structural shapes were the selected materials used to construct the shelters.

DURASHIELD® is Strongwell’s tongue-and-groove fiberglass pultruded panel comprised of a pultruded skin over a foam core. DURASHIELD® panels are designed to be used as walls, roofs and covers.
