Sumitomo Heavy Industries and Amec Foster Wheeler’s fluidized bed business have combined to become the new global leader in sustainable energy solutions.

We are the premier provider of steam generators, gasifiers and acid gas scrubbers which we have been advancing for over 40 years tracing back to our Foster Wheeler and Ahlstrom Pyro-Power origins.

With more than a century of designing, fabricating, erecting and starting our own equipment, we have the experience and capability to assess your boiler, recommend improvements, and predict the impact on performance, reliability and operation before any fieldwork is started.

Through our experience of supplying over 625 fluidized bed units to industrial and utility customers worldwide, we have steadily scaled-up and improved our technology.

As a major player in gasification, we have the necessary in-house expertise located in our major engineering design centers around the world.

The 2 x 300 MW (net) power plant utilizes Sumitomo SHI FW’s circulating fluidized-bed technology that can accommodate multiple solid fuels to generate power.

Efficient steam generation with high availability for one of the biggest soda ash plants in the world

Dominion powers about 150,000 homes from its Virginia City Hybrid Energy Center 670 MWe (gross) clean-coal plant located near St. Paul, Wise county in Virginia.

Our scope included the design and supply of the absorber, pulse jet fabric filter, ash recirculation system, water injection system and lime dry hydrator.

At the heart of the plant is the world’s most advanced Circulating Fluid Bed (CFB) steam generator, representing a culmination of over 30 years of technology development by Sumitomo SHI FW.

We have been awarded a contract by Tecnicas Reunidas SA and Samsung C&T EC UK to design and supply a circulating fluidized-bed (CFB) steam generator for the Tees Renewable Energy Plant, in Teesside, UK for MGT Teesside Limited.

The plant will be built at WGC-6’s Novocherkasskaya GRES generating facility located in Novocherkassk, within the Rostov region of Russia.

The team built a 20 MWth CCS pilot plant demonstrating our advanced Flexi-Burn™ CFB technology and developed a design for a full-scale 300 MWe CCS plant.

GDF Suez, one of the leading energy producers in the world, built a state-of-the-art biomass power plant supplying over 200 MWe of renewable power to Poland’s power grid since 2012.

The CFB’s wide fuel range gives KOSPO the widest fuel procurement flexibility and the ability to save millions of dollars in fuel cost over the plant’s life.

Luminant’s Sandow Unit 5 is a 630 MWe (gross) power plant located in Rockdale, Texas. The plant features two Sumitomo SHI FW circulating fluidized bed boilers which convert high-ash, Texas lignite into valuable power for local homes and industrial facilities.

Soma Kolin Power Plant is the largest CFB project ever awarded in Turkey. The plant will feature two Sumitomo SHI FW circulating fluidized bed boilers and two flue gas scrubbers.
