IoT solutions for Improving Power, Cogen and CHP Plant Performance and Operation

June 26, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm ICT

Internet of Things (IoT) solutions are allowing comprehensive real-time remote monitoring  of thermal power, cogen, and combined heat & power (CHP) plants. Since the boiler is the heart of these plants, monitoring the boiler’s key plant performance indicators (KPI) has shown to be very effective in improving plant reliability, efficiency, emissions, operating and maintenance cost.

Sumitomo SHI FW (SFW), the world’s leader in fuel-flexible CFB technology, has developed SmartBoiler™ technology, which is a package of advanced monitoring, diagnostic and service tools. Plant operators and maintenance teams can use SmartBoiler™ to improve plant operation and performance, scheduling of planned outages, quickly detect and diagnose problems to reduce forced outages.


Ilkka Koskinen will present the functionality, capabilities, and recent advancements of SmartBoiler™ technology in this informative webinar. Ilkka will also discuss the value of coupling SmartBoiler™ technology with short and long-term service programs to optimize plant reliability and operation without increasing the work load of the plant’s O&M staff.


Specific topic discussed will include:

  • How SmartBoiler™ technology and service programs can:
    • Reduce plant O&M cost
    • Improve plant reliability
    • Improve outage planning and scheduling
    • Improve plant efficiency and capacity
    • Optimize stack emissions, limestone and ammonia utilization
    • Expand fuel range: biomass and waste fuels
  • SmartBoiler™ Case Studies:  Tube leakage detection and hot loop circulation failure
  • Utilizing artificial intelligence (AI) and cloud-based IoT-platforms with SmartBoiler


Who Should Attend

  • Plant O&M staff
  • Corporate planning and engineering staff
  • Plant Managers
  • Asset Managers & CIOs
  • EPC and A&E companies
  • O&M Companies
