In the past, the energy content in the process steam passing through an industrial process remained partially unused. Often, energy in a steam pressure reduction station will be destroyed or the steam fed into a condenser. Talbot STP-units use this steam in a range from 0.5 to 10 bar excess pressure for the generation of electrical energy in various performance categories.
The Talbot STP was developed in Germany during a period of three years to be ready for series production. The prototype is stable and reliable and in continuous operation since November 2011 ( > 8,200 h/a) and since then produces 100 kWel as an hourly average.
