In order to provide a power recovery plant comprising a gas turbine with a turbine wheel and a generator with a rotor driven by the turbine wheel, in which the known bearing problems are diminished or even cease, it is suggested that the turbine and the generator be combined in a plant housing to form one unit, that the turbine wheel and the rotor form a rotor unit rotating as a whole and that the rotor unit be rotatably mounted in the plant housing by magnetic bearing units in a non-contact manner.
A power recovery plant comprising: a plant housing, a gas expansion turbine connected to a long distance pipeline for gas, said gas expansion turbine having a radially outer inlet passage, a central outlet passage and a turbine wheel driven by said gas when flowing from said inlet passage to said outlet passage, an electric generator having a rotor driven by said turbine wheel, said rotor and said turbine wheel forming a rotor unit rotating as a whole within said plant housing, said rotor unit being rotatably mounted within said plant housing by magnetic...
