Reliable steam turbines
Steam turbines from 10 kW to 1,900 MW
With over a century of experience and continuous development in our steam turbine technology, Siemens is a prime partner for your business. More than 120,000 steam turbines delivered worldwide prove that we are a reliable and experienced partner. Our steam turbines work as generator drives or as mechanical drives for compressors or pumps. They play a significant role in many combined cycle and cogeneration plants and in industrial applications. Steam turbines are also often applied in the renewable energy sector. Be it power generation plants, district heating, biomass, waste-to-energy, seawater desalination or solar heat: There is a wide range of applications for steam turbines made by Siemens.
Biomass- the green gold of 21st century. Efficient power and heat with steam turbine solutions
Biomass is a valuable fuel and an essential part of the renewable energy mix. How is biomass waste efficiently converted into electricity and heat? Operators of biomass-fueled plants have very specific goals: some want more power, others want to conserve their fuel resources. Let's look at an optimized plant layout and how steam turbine solutions affect the overall efficiency.
The heart of every power plantSiemens Steam Turbines are an essential piece of turbomachinery to many power plants worldwide. They are applied either as a generator drive or a mechanical drive for pumps and compressors. The modular design concept of all steam turbines ensures high flexibility, availability and a reduction of time-to-market.
Our scope of supply
Our steam turbines are designed after a standardized modularized system to design customized steam turbines. This allows highest flexibility in manufacturing and ensures reliability and availability of our products. After extensive consultancy and analysis of your water-steam cycle, we deliver tailor-made steam turbines which fit exactly to your needs.
Continuous technological development
Steam 4.0 – Steam turbines under sucpercritical steam conditions
Since the market introduction of steam power plants with ultra-super critical steam conditions 20 years ago the majority of projects has mainly been on units larger than 600 MW. For these, the applied turbo sets consist of a high pressure and a medium pressure expansion arranged in separate turbine casings.
Resulting from the recently introduced financing guidelines for coal-fired steam power plants, super critical and ultra-super critical steam parameters also become more interesting for applications with smaller power output. To address this market, Siemens introduced a combined high- and intermediate pressure turbine considering super critical steam conditions in order to provide a cost effective solution including the lower output range from 250 to 500 MW.
SeaFloat – Floating steam turbines
Floating power plants’ unique characteristic is the ability to deliver them in one piece; almost completely pre-installed following a smart plug & play philosophy. Our new SeaFloat floating power plant concepts can be utilized for mobile and/or permanent installation to alleviate energy shortages for national grid or industrial application. Mobility, flexibility, decentralized power generation, shorter construction time, reliable technology, robust design, optimization for easy maintenance bring benefits and increase your added value.
The SeaFloat power plants range provides a choice of different gas turbine types and the Siemens steam turbine SST-600.
