History

Our History

With a rich heritage in steam that dates back to 1960’s, Skinner Power Systems manufactures single-stage, steam turbines of proven design for (up to 3,000 horsepower) mechanical drive and electric power generation for petrochemical, marine and many other industrial services around the world. 

Our steam turbine technology has continually advanced from the first Delaval-based designs of the Dean Hill turbine acquired in the early 1960’s to a position of state-of-the-art leadership. In turbine applications where rugged and dependable performance with low capital investment is critical to your operation, the wise choice is a Skinner Single Stage Steam Turbine.

Over 20,000 of our turbines have been installed providing many years of operating experience driving pumps, fans, blowers, compressors, mills, electric generators, and other equipment.
