Delivering Unmatched Excellence-in-Heat Recovery®

HRSG Designs

Vogt Power’s utility-sized HRSGs are designed to recover and recycle heat energy from gas turbine exhaust. A HRSG produces steam that can be used in a process (co-generation) or used to drive a steam turbine (combined cycle). We offer multiple construction options to meet unique site-specific applications, and we design products to meet codes and standards such as: ASME, TRD, IBR and PED/CE. Whether you need HRSG optimization, service, improved efficiency, inspections, or parts and service, Vogt can handle your requests.

The Bundle features a high level of pre-assembly and come with the following items shop installed; modules, top casing, hanger rod support system, internal attic baffles, roof casing penetration seals and interconnecting piping. The redesigned bundle now has the following features: minimization of the removal of shipping steel, provides an option for a single crane lift if the site requires, the modules are immediately top supported once set in place and the total linear feet of external seal welding on the casing when the columns are attached to the casing are reduced. The bundle design also allows the erector to start setting the structure and casing prior to the arrival of pressure parts.


In cases where site access is limited, the Loose Harp reduces the pre-assembly process. The design includes individual module harps that can be transported to the site using normal road transportation. This solution saves time and money.

Easier to Ship and Handle, Lower Equipment Price, Earlier Delivery, More Site Work Required, Smaller Crane Required.
