The turbine

The turbine concept is well suited for Alholmens Kraft with its three turbine chambers and pre-heating systems for condensate and feed water as it produces electricity, process steam and district heat at the same time. Through a bleed in the mid-pressure chamber, process steam is delivered to the UPM Kymmene paper mill and condensation processing in the low-pressure house makes it possible to maintain a efficient electricity production even when the heat load is low.

The turbine produces 240 MW electricity, 100 MW process steam and 60 MW district heating. The turbine was supplied by Energico-LMZ.
