Geared Motors for
the Power Industry
Without electricity, the world today would look fundamentally different. Almost all branches of industry depend on electricity to operate efficiently.
Renewable energy sources are becoming more and more important. According to the European Union's Energy Roadmap 2050, at least 30% of the energy generated should come from renewable energy sources by 2030. These sources include wind, hydropower, solar power, marine energy, biomass, biofuels and geothermal energy. Gearboxes and geared motors are required in many areas to drive power generation plants, including cooling towers, water turbines and air condensers.
In addition to renewable energies, energy is generated by nuclear fusion or fission. Much of the energy today is still produced by burning fossil fuels (hard coal, lignite, natural gas and oil).
The applications listed below will give you a brief insight into the application areas in which our products are integrated. If you are looking for a gearbox or geared motor for another application, please contact us. Based on decades of experience in mechanical drive technology, Premium Stephan provides you with solutions that are perfectly tailored to your needs. We offer tailor-made gearboxes and geared motors for the energy and power generation sector.
Hydropower is the flow energy of flowing water, which is converted into mechanical energy via turbines or water wheels. The turbine speed is adapted to the much higher speed of the generator via gear drives. Depending on the arrangement, helical gear units or helical flat gear units are used. Premium Stephan has the optimum gearbox for every application in its range.
Excess heat from technical processes is often dissipated to the environment in cooling towers. The heat is generated in chemical and petrochemical plants, refineries, steelworks, gas plants and power stations. Whether for cell cooling towers, wet cooling towers or air condensers, Premium Stephan offers you a tailor-made solution for each of these applications. Coaxial helical gear units, parallel shaft gear units and bevel helical gear units with the appropriate motors are available for medium to high power requirements.
The top of the iconic Strata Building, London, opened in 2010, was one of the first residential to have integrated wind turbines in its structure. The building is nicknamed "Electric Razor" Realized with three gear boxes from Premium Stephan together with the VEM generator line.
