Forging the future energy

Turbine Shafts

We are keen on making a difference. With inhouse facilities and a skilled workforce we supply power generation forgings for the renewable energy sector, including hydroelectric power, tidal/wave or geothermal energy, wind and biomass power.

We offer a range of forged shapes for turbines along with generators, compressors, gear boxes, heat exchanges and blowers. Suppling turbine shafts connecting the turbine to the generator, with the shaft turning at the same speed as the actual turbine. This requires turbine shafts to be from the highest quality forging. We manufacturer turbine shafts and low speed shafts according to the customer requirements, up to 23metres in length.

Common material grades used in the power generation sector include 18CrNiMo7-6, AISI 4340, 17-4PH, X750, 718.

Power generation forging parts

The products that we can forge include:

Complex shapes – Such as bucket/fan blade shock, turbine blades, casings, impellers.

Discs and hubs – For example, adapters, covers, impellers, nozzles, tube sheets, rings suction/ discharge end caps and wheels.

Full or segmented rings – These include adapter or spherical seats, diaphragm, flanges, lock, motor end, sleeves, seal, shear resistance, spacer and retainer.

Shafts – Including pole, rota, turbine, low speed, input/output shafts, coupling, generator.

Additional shapes – Somers Forge are not limited to the shapes above and also offer shapes such as bearing blocks, centrifuge bowls, casings, spacers, shells, transition cones.
