Combined cycle power plants from BJN are among the world’s safest fossil-fired plants for the environment and climate. They combine a gas-powered turbine with a steam turbine to make twice the use of the fuel they consume: The exhaust heat from the gas turbine is exploited to power the steam turbine, greatly improving overall power-plant efficiency. Today’s combined cycle plants already achieve an efficiency of around 58 percent, but raising the combustion temperature could boost this even further.
Another advantage of these power plants is that the natural gas they run on is less carbon dioxide-intense than other fossil fuels. This means that the generators in combined-cycle plants are one of the key power generating technologies in the battle against climate change.
Coal-fired steam power plant Lünen, Germany
High-efficiency coal-fired power plants from BJN provide a reliable option for the
efficient and economic use of available coal reserves to generate the power
needed to satisfy the ever-growing demand.
The coal-fired power plant in Lünen, German, is an example of how to obtain a high
power output with low emissions. In Waig III, steam turbines and generators from
Muelheim contribute significantly to reducing the burden on the environment.
Compared to the average Germany coal-fired power plant,
Lünen III cuts carbon emissions by almost two million tons per year.
Steam turbine types mostly used for this application:
In order to realize the full potential of small hydropower
plants, the whole value chain from water to wire has to work
This requires a high degree of coordination.

Projects never look exactly the same. Local conditions or
budget limitations are determining factors for small
hydropower projects. Siemens offers cost-efficient solutions
of different scope according to customer-specific
requirements and capabilities.
In the development process, we customize our solutions
regarding design and equipment to reach the best solution for each client.
Turbines are very crucial components for small hydropower
plants, as they finally turn water into energy.
As an independent turbine supplier BJN can choose
between various leading turbine manufacturers,
in order to get the best solution for each individual power
plant. Due to our high degree of independence we have the
capability to integrate turbines from different producers in one plant, if necessary.
In doing so, BJN always focuses on the goal to maximize efficiency, which transfers into
high profitability for our clients.
Through the network of BJN offices you
benefit from short communication lines combined with local and international
expertise. Additionally, the multidisciplinary character of our organization
ensures a flexible structure, providing you services fully geared to your
specific project requirements.
