Special Materials Energy / Power Generation

Supplying the necessary power whilst minimising the ecological impact is one of the challenges of this generation. Turbines for generators, driven by gas steam or water power, are at the heart of the economy and subsequently our standard of living. 

The materials used here are subjected to extremes of thermal and mechanical loading. An ongoing test which could not be harder. For this application, BÖHLER has developed steels and alloys, e.g. nickel and cobalt based, which make a continuous increase in the efficiency of turbines possible. The world’s leading turbine manufacturers are among our customers.
