Newark Energy Center: Why Thermo-12® Gold Calcium Silicate Insulation Was the Solution

The construction of the Newark Energy Center gas-fired power plant in Newark, New Jersey called for the latest GE gas turbine technology to supply electricity to more than 700,000 homes. The project had an aggressive construction schedule and several specific insulation requirements for the pipe and vessel application.

The insulation had to provide high-compressive strength, optimize corrosion defense, be readily available and cost-effective. This Industrial Insulation Group Project Spotlight shines a light on what insulation solution the company provided and why it was chosen.
