January 23, 2019 - With the market for high sulphur fuel oil under pressure, refiners with delayed cokers can instead opt for higher value power and steam generation
SmartBoiler™: how the Internet of Things can improve boiler operating performance (Modern Power Systems)
Wednesday, 19 December 2018
December 19, 2019 - The Internet of Things is already changing the way the power industry does things, not least in the optimisation of boiler operation.

Petroleum coke (petcoke) is produced by deep recovery oil refineries using delayed coking technology. It is a high energy fuel priced below coal, making it very attractive to energy intensive industries, like cement, power, glass, and steel. Circulating fluidized bed technology has enabled petcoke’s growing use in power and steam production since it can cleanly

In many markets, power producers are constantly faced with growing pressures to generate low cost power from solid fuels. As a result, power producers are increasingly looking to take maximum advantage of locally mined low-quality coals and lignite that are easily available at significantly lower prices. The resulting increase in utilization of low ranks coals

August 1, 2018 - Combustion of biomass poses a number of problems, particularly in utility scale boilers. The circulating fluidised bed has features that control ash agglomeration, fouling, and corrosion, and therefore make it particularly suitable for biomass applications, with inherent characteristics that favour low emissions. The technology also has considerable potential for scale up, and adoption of greatly improved steam conditions.

August 1, 2018 - CFB can bring high value to countries that have large reserves of low quality lignites, coals and waste coals from mining operations, like: Colombia, Germany, Turkey, Russia, South Africa, Vietnam, Thailand, Indonesia, India, China and Australia. Using conventional PC technology, these low quality fuels drive boiler size, cost, and, maintenance and plant downtime way up.

July 10, 2018 - Sumitomo SHI FW (SFW) announces today that it has been awarded a contract by GS Engineering and Construction for design and supply of the Dangjin Biomass No. 2 Power Plant Project Boiler Island. The new boiler island will be located next to the Dangjin Biomass No. 1 Power Plant which was delivered by SFW in 2014. Commercial operation of the new plant is scheduled for 2021.

In many Asian countries, power producers are turning to low quality solid fuels as they face increasing pressure to generate low-cost power. They are finding that fuel-flexible circulating fluidized bed (CFB) technology can capture both the largest fuel cost savings and largest carbon emission reductions by co-firing biomass and other carbon neutral waste fuels. This flexibility can also improve fuel security by expanding fuel procurement strategies across both domestic and import fuel markets.
