Reviews the development in steam turbine cycles as well as pointing out their importance in nuclear and combined cycle power plants. Fuel rates of 245 kg/MWh may become common and it should be possible to approach the 230 kg/MWh level. High efficiency steam cycles will continue to maintain and even increase the competitiveness of marine steam plants in an era of increasing fuel prices.
