There is a company at Hamburg, which also still builds steam engines, beside steam and gas turbines.
Thes motors are like modern-diesel, but still steam engines.
One museum ship in Hamburg uses a Spillingmotor for a generator.
The business runns well I heard...

The engine is modular so you can install 1-2-3-4 as you whish
and you can swith them on/off as you whish. I read that even into
1994 some ships in the phillipienes used it as main-ship engine
and the boiler was fueled with waste...
I know a paper-factory where they use one spilling for generating electricity out of waste heat.

Here some Photos from a Spillingmotor from 1950 at Museum
Gro-Auheim in germany

I have known about these engines for a little while now, and have thought about modelling them, and also whether they would be an economical option for those wishing to own a full-sized steam engine. They're great for generators, obviously, and I've also thought about the idea of using them in steam launches, or even steam road vehicles.
