Hydroelectric Power Plant and Dam Painting

When painting hydroelectric power plants or dams, the job has to be done correctly. Our team of trained employees has the knowledge to complete the job the right way—from surface preparation to the extensive application of coatings. 

Miter and Spillway Gates

Miter and spillway gates receive a lot of wear and tear from daily use. Our team of experts know exactly what steps to take to protect your miter and spillway gates during surface preparation and coating.

First, we take all appropriate measures needed to reach the area that needs to be prepared. We contain the debris that is created during this step before moving on to the next step of coating.

Locks and Dams

Aging locks and dams call for appropriate modernizations, repairs, and maintenance. That’s exactly what Vulcan Painters is here to help your hydroelectric power plant or dam do. 

We have extensive experience in providing the highest quality services, like concrete coating, surface preparation, lead abatement, and industrial coating applications. No matter how tight your schedule is, we will do what it takes to meet the timeline of your hydroelectric facility or dam.

Pen Stock

As an integral part of hydroelectric power plants or dams, pen stock systems require regular maintenance to combat corrosion and regular wear and tear. Because these structures help regulate the flow of liquid, just one sluice or gate being out of order because of corrosion can be catastrophic for productivity. 

Our industrial coatings are some of the best in the business, which greatly benefits all our clients. With proper surface preparation and correct application, your pen stock systems will be protected from corrosion and degradation. With our industrial coatings, you can improve the longevity and durability of your pen stock systems.


Considering that powerhouses store all of the generators and turbines for hydroelectric power plants and dams, it’s essential that they’re in top-notch condition in order to protect their cargo. Your facility can achieve this level of protection with our tried and tested industrial coatings.

High-Quality Standards

At Vulcan Painters, we take each and every hydroelectric power plant and dam project seriously. Our quality policy is to provide coating, lining, and associated value-added services to our customers’ facilities, with a focus on customer satisfaction.


Safety is one of the most important core values that we have. We strive to provide a safe and healthy work environment to our employees, so our customers can rest assured that our safety requirements will meet or exceed their own. We implement a few different measures to make sure that we stay on top of industry-leading safety standards.


We have a full-time Director of Safety, Training, and Leadership Development to keep us accountable and honor our commitment to the safety of our employees. With the help of this director, we constantly evaluate and change our safety measures based on the most up-to-date data.

Safety Council

We also have a safety council in addition to our safety director. In an effort to consider the safety concerns of our valued employees, our safety council includes employees of different divisions. We believe that this helps promote a safety culture from the ground up. 


With extensive in-housing training, skill and career development, and courses from leading trade organizations, we strive to meet our goal of having 100% of our employees trained to safely work on the job site.

Training is the cornerstone of our safety goals. It doesn’t matter what role our employees have—field painter, forklift driver, etc.—they are required to complete regulatory safety training with refresher courses every year. 


We’re partnered with numerous respected associations in order to discuss and share the newest trends in the industry. Here, we keep up with the latest innovations, new products, and most recent legislation affecting our industry. 


As industry leaders, we even share our own innovations and ideas in these groups by presenting papers, giving workshops, and serving on committees that set industry standards. When you work with us, you can rest assured that you’re getting the best experts in the business.


Have you ever been unsure about the quality of industrial painting service your power plant facility will receive from Vulcan Painters? Then hopefully our extensive certifications will help you better understand our commitment to providing top-notch services.

If your hydroelectric power or dam facility has put in the work to achieve an ISO standard, then you know the emphasis on quality and the work required to reach that level. At Vulcan Painters, we value safety and are dedicated to establishing best practices to ensure the implementation of industry-wide safety standards.
