An age-old fuel put to new useProviding a future-proof source of electricity and contributing to lower CO₂ emissions, power produced from biomass is increasingly economically viable. The interests of operators and investors, on the one hand, and those of utilities and grids, on the other, are becoming more closely aligned. This is because ensuring a stable power supply as well as the financial success of the power plant are common goals.
Steam turbine for biomass power plant in Chiba, Japan
Sep, 11th 2020: Siemens Energy received an order from Toyo Engineering Corporation for a steam turbine and related products for a biomass power plant in Japan. The scope of supply includes a steam turbine of 75,000 kW power output, generator and turbine controls.
Centered on biomass – an integral part of the industry
Highly efficient biomass plants thanks to reheat solutions
With the rising prices of biomass used as fuel, the demands placed on the efficiency of a power plant are also increasing. High efficiencies allow for economical operation of the power plant and competitive power generation compared to electricity production from conventional energy sources. Industrial steam turbines with a power output of up to 250 MW and live steam parameters of up to 565 ° C / 165 bar achieve maximum efficiency with a double casing reheat solution.
