Power Generation

Power Generation
"Generation of power is only the starting point of a complex industrial activity that is essential to all economies."

The Power Generation, Transmission and Distribution Industry faces many challenges to comply with the Health & Safety demands across multiple production activities from the burning of Fossil Fuels and Nuclear Generators to Renewables both on and offshore.

Generation of power is only the starting point of a complex industrial activity that is essential to all economies. Power distribution through overhead power lines, transformers and underground cabling across hundreds of miles and to millions of homes and businesses is fundamental to keeping the economy productive, hospitals working, shop lights on and homes warm.

Ensuring safety of the production plant is combined with environmental demands to reduce carbon emissions, noise pollution with downstream obligations to maintain local equipment to keep both employees and the public safe from catastrophic plant failures. All of this balanced with the need to maximise plant utilisation to minimise the cost of generation in a competitive and heavily regulated commercial market.

MacLellan Rubber has been an innovator within the Power Generation market for over sixty years and our products and materials are used in every power generation plant in the UK and many more across the world. In many cases our products are specified for critical applications and offer unique benefits that come with decades of technical development and refinement. In other areas we offer high integrity products to the latest International Standards, manufactured within the European Union to guarantee compliance and complete traceability.

As well as gaskets and specialist sealing products for operational areas including Cooling Systems, Pumps, Valves, Boilers, Generators, Turbines and Combustion Systems we supply Flexible Pipe Connectors, Outflow Expansion Joints (up to 3mtr diameter), MacMount Transformer Anti-Vibration pads, and high load movement joints.
