Also, #Siemens developed SST-500 GEO steam turbine for #geothermal #power plants #yearinreview

Power generation from geothermal energy is a mature technology. In contrast to other popular renewable energy sources, geothermal energy can be used around the clock, regardless of the time of day or weather or climatic conditions, such as solar radiation, clouds and wind strength, enabling high availability base-load power plants to utilize this natural energy source in many parts of the world. At the end of 2012, the global installed power generating capacity of geothermal power plants was more than 11 gigawatts (GW), and further strong growth is expected. "With the SST-500 GEO we will expand our portfolio in the range of steam turbines for geothermal power plants," said Markus Tacke, CEO of the Industrial Power Business Unit of Siemens Energy. "We are now able to offer a family of turbines that is based on our unique know-how as a world leading manufacturer of industria...
