Geothermal Steam Turbine
Geothermal energy production helps conserve fossil fuels and contributes to the diversity of energy sources. Toshiba is a world leader in supplying geothermal turbine/generator technology, commanding a significant share of equipment provided in the global marketplace. Long-term field testing and investigation has enabled the development of state-of-the-art products.
Utilizing high-efficiency impulse technology, Toshiba's geothermal steam turbines are available in various turbine types, including single, double, triple and four flow configurations. These units are applicable to a wide range of resource conditions - steam pressures from 30 to 430 psi - and for various types of systems, such as dry steam plants, single-, double- and triple-flash systems and hot dry rock/enhanced geothermal systems.
In addition to supplying new equipment, Toshiba is able to enhance performance of existing sites through complete steam path retrofits. These upgrades offer performance improvements and enhanced anti-erosion/corrosion capacity with less chance of stress corrosion cracking than previous designs by other OEMs.
