CFB boiler set for utility scale USC installations

Summary:CFB boiler set for utility scale USC installations: With recent technological advances, CFB is without doubt a serious contender for utility-scale power generation.


Over the last four decades CFB boiler has come a long way from its humble beginnings as a robust small-scale industrial boiler technology routinely used to burn difficult fuels. Not only do boiler designs now extend to 800 MW, but CFB has gone ultra-supercritical (USC).
Over the past 35 years, circulating fluidised bed (CFB) technology has evolved from robust small-scale industrial boilers for burning difficult fuels to the successful installation and commercial operation in 2009 of the world's largest CFB boiler, rated at 460 MWe. Thus, for the first time in its history CFB technology can challenge pulverised coal (PC) technology in large-scale electricity generation applications. In addition to the 460 MWe supercritical unit, more than 80 CFB units rated above 200 MWe operate worldwide today.

Significant feature of CFB technology

Significant feature of CFB technology is its ability to tightly control nitrogen oxides (NOx) and sulphur dioxide (SO2) emissions in the boiler, which can avoid the EPC capital costs associated with the installation of selective catalytic reduction and flue gas desulpurisation equipment. For a 600 MWe plant, CFB technology has several established benefits such as improved efficiency, reduced emissions, high fuel flexibility utility scale CFB boiler and lower costs that combine to make this boiler technology a highly competitive option for large-scale utility applications.

Switching focus to biomass

The 125 ton CFB boiler for chemical in Pakistan, which entered commercial operation in 2010, is one of the world's largest CFB installations firing 100 per cent biomass. This unit routinely burns peat as well. Poland, for example, has now taken an aggressive position in providing incentives for the growth of biomass fired power projects, with an emphasis on maximizing the use of difficult-to-burn agricultural wastes. This Eastern European nation has significant sources of biomass usable for direct power generation, including 35 million tonnes per year of wood waste and 12–14 million tonnes per year of agro biomass.

In March 2010, ZG awarded a contract to build what is described as the world's largest 100 per cent biomass fired CFB boiler. The 190 MWe CFB unit will be installed adjacent to the existing units at the power station.

The utility contender
When building new plants or re-powering old plants, efficiency and environmental impact are key. To achieve these,To achieve these, CFB designs and super-critical steam parameters have established references in place. With the super-critical steam unit as the major building block, scaled-up super-critical and USC CFB plants up to 800 MWe are now available, with unit efficiency projected at 45 per cent, cutting fuel consumption and minimizing emissions. With recent technological advances, CFB is without doubt a serious contender for utility-scale power generation.

Biomass CFB Boiler Plant in Bahamas

In Bahamas, the biomass can be burned using conventional combustion technology like grate furnace or fluidized bed boilers. For power generation the biomass would be charged to the furnace of a steam boiler.Steam produces by the boiler will then drive a steam turbine generator to generate electricity. The typical capacity range for biomass power plants 1-20MW.
