Geothermal Power Generation
In geothermal power generation, groundwater is heated by a magma reservoir to high-temperature, high-pressure steam that is used to power a turbine to generate electricity. Since delivering Japan's first practical thermal power plant in 1960, Fuji Electric has delivered about 60 geothermal turbines both in Japan and abroad, including the world's largest 140 MW plant. In addition to manufacturing the individual parts of equipment used in power plants, we are also engaged in the overall plant design, manufacture and construction.
Geothermal power generation: a clean energy source attracting attention
Geothermal Power Generation Systems.
Flash SystemGeothermal fluid is led to the separator, and the separated steam is used to rotate the turbine. If the hot water temperature is sufficiently high, a more effective double-flash or triple-flash system is employed.
Binary Cycle SystemWhen the temperature of the geothermal fluid is too low to obtain a sufficient amount of steam, this system utilizes working fluid with a low boiling temperature to drive the turbine.
