Taking Biomass to Utility Scale Power Production with Advanced Bio CFB Technology: The Polaniec Power Station, Poland

October 13, 2015 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am UTC+0

* On March 2, 2017, Sumitomo Heavy Industries signed an agreement with Amec Foster Wheeler to buy its core fluidized bed boiler business to form Sumitomo SHI FW.



This webinar can help you make informed decisions about CFB boiler selection options for new biomass firing applications. In this informative webinar, Marko Natunen, Senior Project Manager will review the design features and performance characteristics of Amec Foster Wheeler’s advanced bio CFB technology utilized at the Polaniec Power Station. The following topics will be addressed:


  • How to achieve high plant efficiency with biomass fuels
  • How to mitigate boiler agglomeration, fouling and corrosion with biomass fuels
  • Quantifying fuel risks for agglomeration, fouling, and corrosion for specific agro biofuels (sunflower husks, wheat straw, olive waste, palm kernel shells, etc.)
  • Reduction in boiler fouling, corrosion, and maintenance by preventing ash melting


Presenter: Marko Natunen | Senior Project Manager | Amec Foster Wheeler

Marko leads Amec Foster Wheeler’s international Boiler/Power Plant deliveries. Main tasks are to ensure that Project is executed within given schedule and budget without accidents. Safety is a key factor in our deliveries. His latest finished Project “Polaniec Green Energy” is located in Kracow, Poland for a period of approximately two years to ensure the best possible communication within the joint Project team between Poland and Finland.
