"VAMAN - The Midget" range of Micro Steam Turbines are available for as low as 1 KW to a maximum of 50 KW. The Micro Turbines work on low pressure steam of 10 Bar/190C. This helps the ranches, farmhouses and buildings having small low pressure steam boilers. The Steam Turbine is connected between the Boiler and the heater inlet. The steam operates the Turbine to Generate Power and the exhaust is connected to the Heater Inlet to heat up the rooms/barns, etc. Thus without wasting the heat, you also get enough power to light up the house or use utilities. "VAMAN- The Midget" Turbines run at low RPM to minimise wear & tear, thus extending the life of Turbine wheel, bearings and the alternator. 3000 RPM is designed to generate 50 Hz and for 60 Hz the speed is limited to 3600 RPM.

No shipyards nearby, huh? That would be the kind to thing to salvage from one of them, if you can find a scrapped boat that had a boiler plant. But most places that would take boats for scrap these days would be in third world countries.
