Breakthroughs in Steam Conditions

Steam Turbines
Mitsubishi Power has steadily contributed to the development of highly efficient coal-fired thermal power plants by raising the operable temperature range of its steam turbines. As of 2016, we have already delivered several units capable of operating at supercritical main steam temperatures of 600°C and reheat steam temperatures of 620°C. Currently, we are pushing for the next technological breakthrough by developing the next generation of steam turbines capable of operating at ultra supercritical steam conditions in the 700°C range and up to 35 MPa.
