Stork Spotlight – Geothermal Steam Turbines & LP Blades
Stork is the global market leader for large LP Steam Turbine blades. With decades of experience with material requirements, engineering and design, and manufacturing of large steam turbine blades destined for geothermal sites worldwide, that is not at all surprising.
Steam Turbine Experience
Stork has supplied blades all over the world in different configurations for HP, IP & LP rotors. This spotlight concerns primarily the largest L-0 Blades as these are the most difficult to manufacture. In most cases they are manufactured from a closed dye envelope forging, but when a customer has an urgent inquiry due to unforeseen circumstances we are also able to manufacture most blades from a forged bar to get the turbine operational again in as little as five weeks.
