Spilling uplifts innovations to corporate culture.

In the over 100 years of its history, Spilling has always remained a small business with family character. This also helps explain the strong motivation of the Spilling team. The employees identify themselves with the company and its unique products. They advance the further product development and work on meaningful additions at all times. Ultimately Spilling has always seen itself as an innovative company that takes its own independent technical route. 

This comprises, besides the further development of the reciprocating engine to modern expansion machines, also the product line expansion to include single and multi-stage steam turbines. The result: a versatile steam power portfolio with efficient solutions for the most diverse range of industrial and municipal operators.

Spilling has been supplying sustainable energy systems all over the world since 1950. Spilling has successfully implemented countless projects with its customers on all continents.

Sustainability and environmental protection

And Spilling also assumes responsibility when its comes to the environment: The company contributes valuably to saving resources and reducing CO2 emissions with its products for decentral energy generation in the sector of combined heat and power plants, for converting biomass into electricity and for heat recovery.

Spilling - 130 years of successful company management


Latest company project: Spilling enters into research on thermal energy storage. The project is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Economics.


The Spilling steam compressor convinces in additional industrial sectors as a heat pump for providing process steam from low-pressure exhaust steam. The idea of steam recycling continues to gain momentum.


With the Spilling steam compressor, the complete recycling of process steam is finally achieved. At a paper mill in Sweden, the Spilling product is put into operation in a closed cycle.


The first steam compressor for the USA is delivered and commissioned.



For the first time, an autarkic steam cycle is being implemented for the pilot plant of a pressurized fluidized bed drying system with a Spilling steam compressor. The leakage losses are compensated by condensate injection.



The Spilling steam turbines have proven their worth and are now being successfully used in numerous applications in various sectors such as the chemical industry, steel industry, building materials industry, food industry and waste incineration.



Spilling supplies steam turbines for ORC plants for the first time.



Spilling gas expansion engines are increasingly conquering the industry and are now successfully used in numerous companies in the steel, chemical and mineral oil industries.







A further milestone has been reached: Spilling can now also offer steam turbines for the conversion of waste heat into electricity. One of their outstanding features is their suitability for saturated steam operation.

In all series of steam engines, Spilling is now focusing on the introduction of dry-running technology (oil-free steam).

From 1978

The Spilling engines are continuously further developed and are now also used internationally as natural gas expansion engines in the utility industry to exploit the pressure gradient between the gas transport pipeline and the consumer network.

Spilling builds the first steam compressor, thus laying the foundation for future developments.
Since 1950
Spilling produces with the steam engine reliable combined heat and power plants, that are successfully used in over 50 countries around the world.
1945 to 1950
Spilling can quickly pick up speed again after the war and, with the Spilling modular steam engine, makes a name for itself as a flexible driving machine for generators and working machines.
1930 to 1945
Spilling has always positioned itself successfully in the market with the continuous development of systems. For example, the open steam engine is further developed to an encapsulated steam engine with forced oil lubrication.
1918 to 1936
Spilling designs and builds new piston steam engines for ship propulsion.
A ship machinery repair business is founded in the Hamburg free port on Kleiner Grasbrook. This is the birth of the Spilling company.
