The Growing Experience of Fuel Flexible Circulating Fluidized Bed Technology in Large Scale Power Generation

May 9, 2017 @ 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 boiler selection options and considerations for new coal fired power plants. In this informative webinar, Robert Giglio, Vice President of Strategic Planning and Business Development for Amec Foster Wheeler, will describe the design features, technical, and economic benefits of Amec Foster Wheeler’s CFB technology compared to conventional PC boiler technology. Highlights will include:


  • How CFB provides high reliability, low maintenance, and cost effectiveness
  • An updated review of some of the largest and most advanced CFB plants worldwide
  • Specific examples discussed will include:
    • The Tauron 460 MWe supercritical CFB in Lagisza, power plant in, Poland successfully running since 2009
    • The 2200 MWe ultra-supercritical CFB plant, coming on line in Samcheok, South Korea
  • CFB value points vs PC boilers showing cost savings due to fuel flexibility, avoiding SCR NOx and post-boiler FGD, and the capability of co-firing biomass fuels
  • Ability to enhance plant competitiveness by taking full advantage of global fuel arbitrage potential enabled by CFB
