Howden's steam turbines provide a power output up to 40MW

Based on the heritage of Kühnle, Kopp & Kausch and Peter Brotherhood, Howden can meet the need for standard configurable steam turbines to fully custom-engineered solutions. Our steam turbines are used extensively with small-scale industrial power, waste heat recovery, renewable energy systems and as drives for machinery such as pumps and compressors as condensing and backpressure types.

Benefits of Steam Turbines

  • Made in Germany manufacturing: complete value chain (R&D, manufacturing, sales, project management, Engineering, Testing facilities, Aftermarket) based at the Frankenthal facility, which guarantees less interfaces and fast reaction times
  • We understand the economics and needs of the power producers to have equipment with better operating efficiencies, long term reliability, maximum availability and extended operating life to maximise return on investment
  • Customer Intimacy guaranteed with established global network, Steam Turbine Life time support for spare parts and service
  • Quick start capabilities without pre-heating, the industrial process is the important one
  • Precise engineering design gives high efficiency for the most economical operation
  • All ancillary equipment (instruments and controls) complement our steam turbines to ensure you get the best out of your turbo machinery. The client’s standard will be our standard, so plant maintenance is simple
