Reliable, clean fossil fuel combustion from a market-leading supplier

Take advantage of our continuous innovation in clean combustion technologies with our utility boilers. Up to 30% of the world’s boilers use Alstom technology, producing a staggering combined output of 835 GW.

Why choose Alstom utility boilers? 

  • Take advantage of the most economical way to improve efficiency and operating flexibility
  • Get substantial savings on your fuel costs
  • Reduce all emissions for each K/W of electricity generated, including CO2

We provide an extensive range of boilers and firing systems.

Backed by more than 100 years’ experience, we design and supply utility-scale boilers burning a wide range of fossil fuels for steam power generation. These include:

  • Coals
  • Lignites
  • Biomass
  • Liquid fossil fuels
  • Gaseous fossil fuels

Our combustion technology has been proven to burn these fuels as cleanly as possible. That means improved efficiency and reduced emissions of NOx, SO2 and greenhouse gases.

You can also benefit from our global leadership in utility boiler firing systems. Our full range of suspension firing and fluidised bed technologies provide optimised solutions for a wide range of fuels. Emission levels are reduced and excellent levels of availability and reliability are retained.

Niederaussem: The lignite-fired Niederaussem power plant has one of the world‘s largest and most advanced supercritical boilers at 1000MW, with over 43% net efficiency. It demonstrates an optimum balance of high efficiency, high availability, economics and environmental impact for RWE‘s requirements

Patnow II: Patnow II is Poland‘s most efficient brown coal fired plant with an output of 464MW, running at 44% net efficiency.
