The Alstom

From the

CLeaN Power ToDaY!

As one of the most reliable of the renewable energy resources, geothermal power plays a key role in Alstoms clean power offering. Irrespective of weather conditions, a geothermal plant will provide a steady output and respond easily to changes in demand. Alstom pioneered the commercial exploitation of geothermal power in New Zealand in the 1950s. Today, we offer geothermal solutions worldwide, based on our global footprint and technological lead.

PLaNt INteGratorTM
Improving the efficiency of a power plant depends on fine tuning complex interactions between diverse sub-systems. Building on decades of turnkey solutions expertise, Alstom is able to reframe any specific question in terms of the impact on the overall availability and flexibility of the plant. We call it the Plant IntegratorTM approach: it helps operators to maximise their total plant performance while fully complying with environmental, regulatory and commercial constraints.

LifeCYcLe MaNaGemeNt
When considering the environmental balance of a given fuel type or technology, one has to take into account the full lifecycle. This means assessing the entire process from procurement and construction to operation and maintenance. Alstoms support and commitment throughout the component or plant lifecycle allows owners to maximise their return on investment while minimising negative environmental side effects.

Protecting performance


Proven and validated technology

The geothermal products and services offered by Alstom incorporate the latest know-how and technology focussed on the particular challenges of the geothermal industry. Alstom turbines offer the ideal combination of performance and durability. In geothermal, we use robust direct drive turbines to cope with the demands of wet steam with dissolved impurities. By working with optimised blade forms, fewer stages and broader clearances, our turbines cope reliably with even the most challenging steam compositions. Flexible configurations: Alstom can provide plant from 15 MW to 135 MW in order to meet each customers needs: Smallest plant layout of approximately 15-35 MW using single flow turbine module For mediu m size plants (35-65MW): plant layout based around our single flow module in 50Hz and double flow module in 60Hz For larger steam fields with proven steam resources in 50Hz markets Alstom offers power plant sizes in the 65-135MW range based around a double-flow turbine configuration, which offers both excellent performance and economies of scale. For each project, Alstom always take into account issues like safety, cost effectiveness and to offer the most optimised solution.

Selected Design Features

The plant layout and component design protect auxiliary and electrical systems from corrosion that could occur during steam venting. To reduce erosion of the moving blades, efficient Alstom water traps drain excessive steam condensate between each turbine stage. Instant closure of the inlet valves is critical to the safety of a geothermal plant. Alstom valves are specially designed to prevent blocking through fouling or scaling. 10 Labyrinth seals are used for the main shaft, these being simple, robust and easily maintained. Triple control security prevents backflow from the condenser to the turbine. The design of Alstoms steam strainer reduces particle ingressions with a minimum pressure drop. Hybrid ejector and vacuum pump systems extract noncondensable gases from the condenser to maintain condenser efficiency. The Alstom distributed control system (DCS) minimises false alarms and maximises plant protection.

Alstom geothermal steam turbines are built with special steel alloys and are heat-treated to protect against the corrosive effects of dissolved gases, impurities and water droplets. Induction hardening or stellite shielding can be employed to extend the lifetime of the last-stage blades where lower temperatures increase the risk of water droplet erosion.

by robust and proven designs


EPC and service offerings

Our flexible plant offering can be fully adapted to your needs. Because there is no reliability without assured steam quality, Alstom insists on a minimum scope of the steam enhancement and power island systems. However, by ordering a complete turnkey power plant, Alstom can take care of every aspect of design, engineering, procurement and construction. Owners, especially independent power producers, can also benefit from the addition of an Alstom extended service contract to cover the day-to-day running and maintenance of the plant. As a leading global O&M provider Alstom can tailor a package to exactly suit your plant and business strategy.
