The Value Proposition for Large scale CFB Coal Technology for Indian Sub-continent

July 18, 2019 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm IST


Indian power producers require low cost, environmentally clean yet very reliable baseload power generation that can leverage India’s vast indigenous coal and biomass resources. CFB technology has increased its world-wide presence principally due to its highly-desirable fuel flexibility feature combined with significantly reduced air emissions, particularly CO2. The CFB’s fuel flexible and low emissions design provide Indian power producers the ability to utilize the lowest cost coal, petcoke, coal slurry, lignite, washery rejects, biomass, rice husks and peat, even in variable mix combinations, to produce the lowest possible power cost for Indian consumers.

CFB technology also offers several additional commercial advantages. Its inherent low emissions design avoids the cost of installing and operating expensive DeNOx and DeSOx flue gas cleaning equipment. Supercritical and ultra-supercritical CFB technology further increase conversion efficiency thus lowering both CO2 emisions and the overall cost of electricity production. Long-term operating data clearly demonstrates that CFB clean coal technology has a lower forced and planned outage rate and thus higher reliability than conventional coal and biomass combustion technologies. All these features should be very attractive.


The webinar will focus on the technical, economic and environmental benefits of CFB boilers that may be customized for the Indian power market. Plant case studies relevant to the Indian market & fuels will be presented, such as:


Korea’s 2,200 MWe Samcheok Green Power Project (4 x 550 MWe), uses SFW’s ultra-supercritical CFB technology. Topics of special interest to Indian power developers include the unique plant design features that give KOSPO, the plant owner, the greatest possible flexibility in fuel procurement. This important design feature now saves KOSPO millions of dollars in fuel cost each year of operation.


Turkey’s 450 MWe Soma Kolin (2 x 225 MWe), is a project under construction using SFW CFB technology that will efficiently burn locally-procured very low-quality lignite. This is an important example for Indian power developers who are constrained to using low quality coals and lignites yet are challenged by regulators to meet low air emission limits while producing affordable and reliable electricity.


UK’s Teesside Renewable Energy Plant (1 x 299 MWe), the world’s largest “brownfield” 100% biomass-fired power station in the UK features SFW’s advanced biomass CFB technology.



Attendees will be given the opportunity to ask questions about their specific project interests during the Q&A session of the webinar.
