The test facility, located on SwRI’s campus in San Antonio, is configured to enable optimization of The Supercritical Transformational Electric Power project known as STEP Demo.
Here a next-generation electricity generating plant with dramatically improved efficiencies, economics, and environmental performance will be demonstrated. The STEP Demo project will integrate and prove compact, modular technologies that can be applied to generate clean, low-cost power from a wide range of heat sources.
Don’t miss this opportunity to visit this newly constructed 22,000 ft2 building and see how things are coming together at this state-of-the-art demonstration site.
In addition, visitors will visit SwRI’s Turbomachinery Research Facility, a 10,000 sq ft laboratory with flexible test
capabilities including 3 MW closed-loop compression facilities, 1 MW-scale supercritical CO2 test loops, hydrogen combustion and compression facilities, seal and bearing test rigs.
