Steam turbines are also installed in units that use the sun’s energy by concentrating solar radiation and transferring heat to the power cycle via a heat transfer fluid.
In combination with a suitable heat storage tank, these technologies can be used for secondary grid control as well. We design steam turbines for both parabolic mirror systems and solar tower collectors.
These turbines are characterised by a large number of starts and fast ramp rates to the required power output. Depending on customer needs, Doosan Škoda Power’s steam turbines can be designed to meet the requirements for outdoor installations in dusty environments or for connection to an air-cooled condenser operating at higher temperature levels.
