Steam Power Plant


Steam Power Plant

We are pioneer designer and manufacturer of Steam Power Plants for rural electrification and promoting independent rural industries for primary need of the people as advocated by Mahatma Gandhi ji. He has asserted that all the means of production of primary needs of the people must be in the hands of common masses. He also stated that we must learn the appropriate use of steam and electricity for humanity. Thus we provide you opportunity and freedom to produce your own energy at a fraction of the cost required by giant plants.

The Tiny Steam Power Plants need to be manually fed with wood or biomass for the boiler continuously. The electricity generated from this is easily used for driving motors in captive mode. If electronic inverter is used, then electricity can be converted from AC to DC and DC to AC and then grid feeding can be done.
