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.
August 1, 2018 - The Samcheok Green Power Plant requires less maintenance and is more cost-effective than conventional coal plants, and more environmentally friendly with its use of once-through ultrasupercritical boilers.
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.
July 9, 2018 - Sumitomo Heavy Industries, Ltd. has established a joint enterprise with NIPPON STEEL & SUMIKIN ENGINEERING CO., LTD. and secured an order from Kanda Biomass Energy K.K. for a biomass power plant.
June 6, 2018 - SFW is proud to be a corporate sponsor and participant of the “AI challenge” offered by Reaktor and the University of Helsinki. Artificial Intelligence is predicted to impact every industry and every individual. Sumitomo SHI FW, committed to innovation and growth, sees AI as an important emerging technology that can boost the value add of SFW offerings in the energy industry.
June 5, 2018 - Sumitomo SHI FW announces today that it has successfully completed the delivery of a CFB boiler technology upgrade project to increase the oil shale retort gas combustion in an existing circulating fluidized-bed (CFB) boiler at the Enefit´s Narva Power Plant in Estonia.
April 30, 2018 - “Services Americas” is the latest addition to SFW. Since our acquisition by Sumitomo Heavy Industries (SHI) last year, we are the OEM of the AMEC Foster Wheeler fleet of fluidized bed boilers.
