Steam Tubes and Pipes
Supercritical and Ultra-Supercritical Power Plants
Vallourec is a key partner for the builders of supercritical or ultra-supercritical thermal power plants, whose pressure (220 bars) and operating temperatures (600-610°C) are greater than those in older power plants, that are more energy efficient and help reduce CO2 emissions.
Advanced Supercritical Power Plants
In addition, the Group is developing new solutions with its customers for the next generation of advanced supercritical thermal power plants, which will operate at even higher pressures and temperatures (350 bars and 700°C respectively).
