Power plants and industrial facilities in Europe continue to face challenges in improving reliability and fuel flexibility while maintaining low maintenance costs. Changing market considerations require power plants to burn a wide range of fuels such as hard coal, lignite, biomass, and waste fuels to stay competitive. At the same time, tightening environmental regulations such as the BREF and IED impose stringent emission targets on plants. All these factors combined with an aging generation fleet requires plant operators to carefully plan boiler upgrades, modernization, retrofits, and optimization measures to ensure high reliability, availability & extended boiler life.
Sumitomo SHI FW brings extensive expertise in understanding and solving a range of solid fuel boiler performance issues on CFB, PC, stoker and BFB units. In this informative webinar, Timo Anttikoski, Director, TMU, Service Sumitomo SHI FW will address capacity and process improvements and case studies optimizing and upgrading existing boilers for utilizing wider fuel range and to meet tightening emission limits. Ilkka Koskinen, Director, LTSA agreements, Service Sumitomo SHI FW will address Long Term Service Agreements (LTSAs) and SmartBoiler™ services.
The webinar will cover the following topics:
This webinar will help energy facilities make informed decisions about taking preventive measures and adopting best practices in maintenance and engineering services to improve reliability, meet new environmental regulations and extend boiler life.
