These three electric generators being built by Westinghouse soon will add 110,000 kilowatts of electric energy to the nation's war power supply.

That's enough electricity daily to produce steel for 880 medium Army tanks.

The huge machines, hydrogen-cooled for higher speed operation, will go to power plants in Kentucky, North Carolina and Pennsylvania.
