April 1, 2020 - An advanced analytics service developed by Sumitomo SHI FW (SFW) is providing insights to Vantaan Energia that are helping them to cut operational costs and carbon emissions. This service was co-developed with the customer and follows a boiler modernization project at their Martinlaakso plant that enabled the use of biomass for power production.
March 25, 2020 - Sumitomo Heavy Industries, Ltd. has secured an order from JGC JAPAN CORPORATION for a boiler facility to be used at a 75 MW 100% biomass-fired power plant.
February 25, 2020 - SHI strengthens its position in cleantech and energy storage industry with $46 million investment in Highview Power
February 25, 2020 - Sumitomo Heavy Industries, Ltd. (“SHI”) invested USD46million in Highview Power Limited (“Highview”), U.K., leading the development of Liquid Air Energy Storage (“LAES”) technology globally, which is expected to play an important role in the electric power industries just around the corner, in order to acquire the energy storage technology.
February 18, 2020 - SFW is proud to announce being selected by HELEN to provide a circulating fluidized-bed (CFB) boiler for the new Vuosaari bioenergy plant which will assist Helen’s goal of becoming carbon neutral by 2035
January 13, 2020 - The use of Sumitomo SHI FW (SFW) circulating fluidised bed (CFB) combustion technology has grown from smallscale applications to large ultra-supercritical power plants in less than 20 years. The CFB is rapidly becoming the technology of choice for solid-fuel-fired power generation applications, particularly for locations with lower quality fuel. It addresses the need for sustainable use of domestic fuels in many countries, notably India.
January 13, 2020 - There is growing recognition that circulating fluidised bed technology is a good fit for India’s power generation needs. An independent expert committee convened by the Indian Ministry of Power – with representatives from CEA (Central Electricity Authority), BHEL, NTPC, and NLC – for example, identified a number of benefits, notably fuel flexibility and inherently low emissions, without the need for expensive emissions control systems to meet the SOx and NOx below 100 mg/Nm3.
November 8, 2019 - Although wind and solar facilities receive most of the renewable power publicity, biomass offers a reliable baseload solution for power generators. State-of-the-art circulating fluidized bed boilers are a dependable option for incorporating biomass into power mixes.
