Carbon fuels such as coal, oil or gas are burned to generate steam that drives large turbines for producing electricity. These plants can generate electricity reliably over long periods of time.
The main driver may be a steam turbine, a gas turbine or, in small plants, a reciprocating internal combustion engine. All plants use the energy extracted from expanding gas, either steam or combustion gases. Fossil fuel power plants will continue to contribute significantly to a needs-oriented power supply. They form the basis of a working energy mix, which is indispensable for meeting the major challenges of today and tomorrow. Cooling, preheating and heat recovery are key tasks throughout the complex processes in a modern and efficient fossil fuel power plant. We offer all these product solutions in various designs, including economizers, waste heat boilers, condensers, air preheaters, water and oil coolers, radiators and many more.
