November 29, 2017 - Scale economics, fuel availability, and environmental impact have generally been the key factors determining utility-size power plant design choices. In the November edition of Modern Power System, Robert Giglio and Timo Jäntti, Sumitomo SHI FW discuss a good illustration of this axiom, the 299 MWe Tees Renewable Energy Plant (TeesREP), a combined heat and power facility being built on a brownfield site at Teesport near Middlesbrough, UK.
November 29, 2017 - Changes in the global solid fuel market provide a market advantage to owners of plants that are fuel agnostic. But fuel flexibility means more than just being able to burn a wide range of coals or even coal and biomass mixes. It also means that plant reliability, maintenance, ease of operation, and stack emissions must be largely unaffected over a very wide range of fuel quality including coal and biomass fuel mixes. Robert Giglio, Senior VP of Sumitomo SHI-FW discusses why Fuel Flexible CFBs are the Future of Solid Fuel Power Generation in the latest issue of Power Insider Magazine.
November 29, 2017 - Bob Giglio & Boguslaw Krzton, Sumitomo SHI FW discuss The Right Solution for Turkey’s Energy Future in the latest edition of Enerji Panorama.

Teesside goes big on biomass (TEI Times)

November 6, 2017 - When it begins commercial operation, the 299 MW Tees Renewable Energy Plant in the UK will be the largest and most efficient dedicated biomass fired power plant in the world. Junior Isles examines the plant, which marks a new milestone for circulating fluidised bed technology.
November 3, 2017 - The recent acquisition of Amec Foster Wheeler’s circulating fluidised bed (CFB) boiler business by Sumitomo Heavy Industries Ltd is a big deal in the biomass to energy world. The new entity Sumitomo SHI FW (SFW) calls itself, “A new global leader in sustainable energy solutions,” a seemingly bold and bullish statement that on closer examination has plenty of substance to it.
November 1, 2017 - Sumitomo’s SHI buys Amec Foster Wheeler’s CFB technology to create a new force in fuel flexible CFB technology.
October 25, 2017 - Asian Power recently caught up with Sumitomo SHI FW’s Eiji Kojima and Tomas Harju-Jeanty at Asia Power Week, 2017 in Bangkok, Thailand to discuss the recent acquisition of Amec Foster Wheeler’s CFB boiler business by Sumitomo Heavy Industries.
October 24, 2017 - Only circulating fluidized bed combustion technology satisfies all of the often contradictory design requirements of modern solid fuel plants, writes Robert Giglio.
