Triveni Group Organisation Structure
A large percentage of world's power generation is achieved using steam turbines. The advantage of power generation using steam turbines are:
- The physical properties of steam (used as energy source for the turbines) are predictable at various pressures & temperatures and are constant across the globe.
- The Steam turbine designs are scalable and can be designed to suit any application.
- A Steam turbine separates the energy source and electrical power generation, making it compatible with various sources of fuels as feedstock (Coal, biomass, Municipal Waste), unlike a gas turbine, gas engine, diesel sets, etc.
- Combined heat and power can be handled by steam turbines effectively, making it a widely used mode of power generation in the process industry.
- Steam turbines catering to the base load operation in modern power systems by their unique operational characteristics (starting time and reliability)
Up to 30 MW
Above 30 MW up to 100 MW
In India, steam turbine market is anticipated to grow significantly owing to electricity demand growth and rigorous industrialization. Stringent government norms towards technology development will further thrust the industry share. By applications, the global steam turbine market is segmented as power generation, petrochemical, pharmaceuticals, food processing and waste to energy. Power generation is anticipated to grow substantially owing to increasing demand for electrification and government initiatives in compliance with effective technology adaption. In 2017, Government of India has revised generation targets for the financial year 2017-18 to be increased by 50 billion units in comparison to previous year. Waste to the energy industry is set to grow considerably about growing demand for energy security and clean energy generation. The total installed capacity for power generation in India was 3,26,848 MW as on 31st March 2017, and approximately 57,260 MW of the installed capacity was from renewable energy sources.
The Indian Government’s focus on attaining ‘Power for all’ has accelerated capacity addition in the country. Indian power sector is undergoing significant changes that will redefine the industry outlook. Sustained economic growth continues to drive electricity demand in India. The annual growth rate in renewable energy generation has been estimated to be 34%. The Government has added 8,500 MW of conventional generation capacity during April 2016 - January 2017 period. Under the 12th Five Year Plan, the Government has added 93,500 MW of conventional power generation capacity, thereby surpassing its target of 88,500 MW during the period. Out of India’s total installed capacity of 57,260 MW of grid-connected renewable power, a significant share of 56% came from wind power, while 8% is contributed by small hydro power. The share of biomass and waste to energy segments contributed about 14%, with the balance 21% coming from solar.
