The Samcheok Project – The Future of Clean Coal Technology

October 20, 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.



In this informative webinar, Jim Utt, Vice President, Amec Foster Wheeler, will describe the design features, technical, and economic benefits of Amec Foster Wheeler’s ultrasupercritical CFB technology utilized for the Samcheok Green Power Project, highlighting:


  • How CFB technology gives KOSPO the widest fuel procurement flexibility and the ability to save millions of dollars in fuel cost over the life of the plant
  • How the unique low temperature CFB combustion process coupled with ultra- supercritical steam technology will provide KOSPO with high plant efficiency and low emissions, including CO2
  • How the integrated low mass flux BENSON vertical tube evaporator technology with supercritical CFBs minimizes CFB boiler fabrication, construction, operation and maintenance costs in addition to minimizing auxiliary power and improving heat rate
  • CAPEX savings due to built-in SO2 control equipment avoiding the need for back-end FGD systems
  • Ability to enhance plant competitiveness by taking full advantage of global fuel arbitrage potential enabled by CFB
