New Technology For Rapid Steam Turbine Start-Up

Growth in renewable (but unsteady) energy sources has placed greater burden on modern gas-fired electric plants to cycle on and off to maintain steady and reliable electric production between Renewables and Base Load.

These plants utilize a combination of gas (70%) and steam (30%) turbines to produce electricity. Critical for top efficiency is ensuring pure steam reaches the second stage quickly.
