What is a Steam Turbine?

A steam turbine is a device that extracts thermal energy from pressurized steam and uses it to do mechanical work on a rotating output shaft. 

Because the turbine generates rotary motion, it is particularly suited to be used to drive an electrical generator. The steam turbine is a form of heat engine that derives much of its improvement in thermodynamic efficiency from the use of multiple stages in the expansion of the steam, which results in a closer approach to the ideal reversible expansion process.


  • Robust & Reliable 

Triveni Turbines offers industrial steam turbines up to 100 MW that work across a wide range of pressure and flow applications.

  • High sustained efficiency

Advanced technology such as optimum combination of impulse and reaction blade path that maximises efficiency.

  • Excellent rotor dynamics

Solid forged rotor with integral discs to improve reliability.

Rotor dynamic analysis for lateral critical speeds for each shaft and bearing configuration.

  • Can be built in small units

Compact design for lower civil cost, quicker installation and easier maintenance.


The steam power generation is categorized based on:

  • Fuel / Feedstock used for producing steam
  • Power Generation output and
  • Utilization of Power
Application Description Industry Solution
Co-generation (COGEN) 
Co-generation (COGEN)
By-product is utilized to raise steam for power generation Bagasse in Sugar Mill, Empty Fruit Bunch, Kernel from Palm Oil Mills
Combined Heat and Power (CHP) 
Combined Heat and Power (CHP)
  • Steam is utilized for process heat requirement, and power generation is incidental.
  • Optimized Heat and Power solutions for a plant.
  • Surplus power is exported to Grid.
Process Industries, Food Processing, Pharmaceuticals, Chemical industry and many more or Only for water and space heating and purpose like in District Heating.
Waste heat recovery (WHR) and Combined Cycle Power Plant (CCPP) 
Waste heat recovery (WHR) and Combined Cycle Power Plant (CCPP)
Energy recovery from hot streams with potential high energy content, such as hot flue gases through a heat exchanger either HRSG (Cyclical Gas Flows in case of Gas Engine) or WHRB (continuous Gas flows like process flue gasses and flow from exhaust of Gas Turbine).

  • It produces steam that can be used in a process (cogeneration) or used to drive a steam turbine (combined cycle).
