Cost
This chart presents cost estimates for generating 40 kg/s of steam at a medium pressure level, 8 bar, in the countries listed below.
Steam may also be purchased from an external supplier. In this case, the industrial customer pays for steam supplied by an offsite facility. In this context, the industrial customer is not the owner of the boiler unit, in such a way that the price paid covers not only operating costs of the offsite facility, but also a return on the capital investment employed in the construction of such facility.

Utilities Cost vs. Purchase Price. Utilities may be generated inside the industrial site or purchased from an external supplier. When the utility is generated onsite, utilities cost represent estimates of the operating costs of the respective utility generation unit. Therefore, these costs do not include capital cost component associated with the construction of the utility generation unit. On the other hand, when the utility is purchased from an external supplier, the price paid covers not only operating costs of the off-site utility facility, but also a return on the capital investment employed in the construction of such facility.

The cost figures presented in the charts represent estimates of the operating costs of a unit for Steam generation. To access Steam purchase prices, click here
