Abstract Scope Boron containing steel COST FB2 designed for operational steam temperatures up to 620C has found increasing industrial application in high efficiency turbines. Currently several development programs are going to further increase the steam temperature beyond 700C. To achieve higher temperatures with steel forgings not only sufficient creep strength has to be achieved, but resistance against steam oxidation has to be improved by increase of Cr content. In the past all attempts to develop stable creep resistant martensitic 11-12% Cr steels for up to 650C failed due to breakdown in long-term creep strength. Therefore the European project “Z-Ultra” was launched for development and manufacture of a new alloy type replacing in the steel matrix nitride strengthening particles by fine precipitations of the more stable Z-phase. Saarschmiede participates in this project and contributed amongst others by manufacturing a full scale turbine part. Production experience and test results are presented. Steam temperatures of about 700C can only be achieved by using Ni-base material in the hottest part of the turbine. In previous R&D projects solid solution hardening Alloy 617 proved to be a most promising candidate alloys. For temperatures in the range of 750C only g‘-precipitation hardened nickel base alloys can be applied. In Europe “NextGenPower” project was funded by the European Commission, where one of the main goals was to develop turbine rotor materials and to demonstrate manufacturability of forgings for full scale turbine rotor parts for that steam temperature range. Contributing to this project, Saarschmiede has produced a large rotor forging from well known Alloy 263 with a diameter of 1000 mm, which is the first worldwide of that size. Experiences in manufacture and test results are presented.
