All our models are available in condensing or backpressure configurations, and we offer various inlet options with single and multi-valve configurations to satisfy all capacity requirements. The turbine exhaust can be either radial or axial. Low-pressure stage options include a large family of three-dimensional stages, and either variable or fixed speed capabilities with high speed/high efficiency families.
These machines are well suited to industrial power generation (combined cycle, cogeneration, waste-to-energy, biomass), solar power generation, oil and gas applications (refinery, LPG, power generation) and for use as boiler feed pumps. All benefit from the large-scale testing capability at our various oil BHGE facilities.
Covering applications up to 40 MW, our MP and MC series steam turbines feature multi valves, sliding and/or fixed pressure control, and axial or radial (up/down) exhaust. They accept frequent starts/stops, are optimized with balance of plant equipment, and have a grid valve for extraction/injection control.

For these applications, we generally recommend MC units rated up to 30 MW. Their main characteristics are high reliability and efficiency over a broad speed range with modules available in single or dual admission. Their modular design enables a high degree of customization for large fossil power generation optimization.
With a power range up to 6 MW and speed range of 3,000 to 15,000 rpm, the P/C series is ideal for small mechanical drive applications. Like MP/MC, these units are highly reliable and efficient over a broad operating range, and can be used in backpressure or condensing configurations. The key differences from MP and MC are that P/C units are single valve.
Impulse Steam Turbines from BHGE provide many advantages for customers, including:
- High reliability
- High efficiency
- Condensing or backpressure configuration options
- Large-scale testing capability available
