With so many of our customers now putting decarbonization at the heart of their operations, we’ve made it a priority to develop new technologies and partnerships that accelerate their moves in this direction. Let’s take a look. Decarbonization is the main megatrend shaping our industry, while at the same time grids are becoming increasingly digitized
The Challenge Variability in the quality of fuel required for operations is a big challenge for present-day thermal-energy producers. Poor quality fuel can significantly contribute to harmful phenomena like fouling and corrosion in the critical structures of an energy boiler, including on its heat-exchange (HX) surfaces. Fouling and corrosion often arise when the use of
Espoo, Finland, Jan 19, 2022 – Vantaa Energy and Sumitomo SHI FW (SFW) continue their close collaboration in developing artificial-intelligence solutions for reducing the environmental impacts of energy production. As a result of a joint pilot project launched in 2020, the AI solutions are based on the utilization of process data and advanced analytics. The partnership was deepened
Global energy technology leader Sumitomo SHI FW (SFW) has entered into a collaboration agreement with China’s Shanghai Power Equipment Research Institute (SPERI) for evaluating the feasibility of LDES utilizing liquified air energy storage, CRYOBattery™, technology. Collaboration involves conducting a study with two configurations, a four (4) and an eight (8) hour storage, to determine the
From waste-to-energy to long-duration energy storage  – in just three years the SFW Innovation Program has taken us into several promising new business areas that are already yielding results.
