Modernization & Upgrades for Utility Steam Turbines

Tailored Service for your Equipment

In a performance-based market structure, when plants are managed as profit centers, it is necessary to strategically improve efficiency, optimize capacity, minimize costs and maintain high reliability in order to be competitive - especially when it comes to aging plants. Therefore, Siemens Energy Service has developed an array of Performance Enhancement solutions that can help you make your generating assets more profitable.

The Perfect Modernization Solution for your Steam Turbine

Given the relatively low fuel cost of coal- and nuclear-powered steam turbine generators, and the increasing strategic value of existing sites, a modernization of existing equipment can be more cost-effective and faster than installing new generation equipment.
