    Excerpt from Westinghouse Turbo-Alternators: April, 1912

    While the Westinghouse Machine Company commenced its turbine work under the American patents of the Honorable Charles A. Parsons, which it purchased outright, it has been no mere copyist, but has from the first worked along original and progressive lines. For example, it first demonstrated the practicability of single - cylinder units of large powers. In 1901, it built and installed for the Hartford Electric Light Power Company, Hartford, Conn., a turbine of 2000 kilowatts capacity in one cylinder. Up to that time no single cylinder turbine of larger than 500 kilowatts capacity had been built, and even with separate high and low-pressure cylinders, 1000 kilowatts was then the record size. Notwithstanding predictions of failure, this machine broke down the barriers of ultra-conservatism, and established the confidence that has made possible the mammoth engines that are in common use today. It has made the Company willing to assume the responsibility for the still larger units that are in contemplation.
