Title: Sole plate for turbine and power generating plant equipment

Abstract: A sole plate in use for turbine capable of realizing a smooth sliding on a gland pad used in the mounting portion of power generating plant equipment, effectively suppressing a variation in the alignment of a rotating shaft by a reaction due to thermal expansion and the thrust of a gas turbine, and eliminating a regular maintenance such as filing of lubricating oil, and disposed between the gland pad installed on a base and a turbine support part, comprising a sole plate body made of a metal material disposed on the turbine support part sole and a sliding member made of a material with self-lubricity formed on the surface of the sole plate body on the gland pad side.
