Siemens announced a key milestone for its steam turbine factory in Vadodara with the roll-out of the 1,000th steam turbine from the factory. The 1,000th turbine is a 29 megawatt (MW) waste heat recovery steam turbine for JK Cement, the second largest manufacturer of white cement in India. Waste heat recovery is an economic method to increase the overall efficiency of the plant and, thus, lower fuel demand.
The Siemens Steam Turbine factory in Vadodara manufactures steam turbines of up to 200 MW for the domestic and overseas markets. The factory has been operational since 2004 and is an established Center of Competence for steam turbines from 2 to 100 MW used in industrial applications. Spread over an area of 6,500 square meters, the factory manufactures single-stage and multi-stage steam turbines for industrial applications in addition to providing after sales and repair services.
