Alstom Power

Industry: Energy, Process & Utilities

Alstom is a global leader in the world of power generation and sets the benchmark for innovative and environmentally conscious technologies.

The Challenge

Maximize energy production and efficiency by achieving the fastest start-up of steam turbine without exceeding allowable stress limits.

Dassault Systèmes Response

Alstom leveraged Abaqus FEA from SIMULIA in conjunction with an in-house tool to optimize the design of steam turbine rotors to reduce start-up time and increase operational flexibility.


Realistic simulation combined with process automation eliminated manual iterations and reduced design cycle times by 50%, ultimately lowering costs, producing faster start-up times, and improving product reliability and efficiency.
