SST-4000 utility steam turbine package

Overview

Powerful and reliable – thanks to proven design for high efficiency

The SST-4000 series is our specialized turbine for dual-pressure, combined cycle applications. With the specialized design of the blade path, the entire power range from 100 to 380 MW can be covered with the highest reliability and availability.

 

Almost 40 turbines of this type are already in operation or in the commissioning stage, with a total installed capacity of approximately 7,200 MW.

 

The SST-4000 series consists of an intermediate-pressure and a low-pressure turbine. The installation is either high or low level arrangement with down, double-side or single-side exhaust. The turbine is able to provide process steam e. g. for industry or sea water desalination and can provide industrial heating.

Thanks to its systematically modular design, we can easily adapt the SST-4000 series to the individual operating conditions and thermal cycle of a plant. Another advantage is its fast installation, thanks to prefabricated, tested modules delivered ready for connection.

SST-5000 utility steam turbine package

Overview

Flexible condensing or back-pressure steam turbine

The SST-5000 is capable for supercritical and ultra-supercritical steam power plants. Due to its higher pressure and temperature ratings, power plant efficiency increases more than 46 percent and overall performance is improved.

In steam power plants the SST-5000 consists of a combined highpressure / intermediate-pressure turbine, and one or two low-pressure turbines. It is installed as a low- or high-level arrangement. There are various exhaust configurations available to create an optimized plant layout: down-, single-sided, and double-sided. Various extractions (up to 9 stages) create an optimized plant layout with down-, single-sided or doubles sided exhaust.
