NEW YORK Alcoa Power and Propulsion, a division of Alcoa Inc., has signed an agreement with Siemens Energy Inc. to supply blades and vanes for a range of industrial gas turbines.
Alcoa parts made in the United States and Europe will be used in such products as the Siemens F-Class turbine, according to a statement from Pittsburgh-based Alcoa.
Alcoas blades and vanes operate in the most demanding section of the turbine, where temperatures sometimes exceed the melting point of the casting and the rotational rate exceeds the speed of sound, said Andreas Fischer-Ludwig, director of global blades and vane business at Siemens Energy.
Siemens Energy is a subsidiary of German-based Siemens AG. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.
