Sumitomo SHI FW to supply BFB boiler to Sweden
The new BFB boiler will be part of the Lugnvik plant in Östersund and will use biomass as fuel ensuring a secure supply of heat and power to Jämtkraft customers.
It will also contribute to increased production of renewable electricity as one-third of the energy production of the plant will become electricity and two-thirds will be for district heating.
The contract was signed on May 6, 2022, which is also the Notice to Proceed (NTP) date. Jämtkraft is a long-standing SFW customer with two circulating fluidised bed (CFB) boilers delivered in 1985 and 2002 respectively.
This is a major investment that will secure the supply of renewable heat and power to our customers for many years to come and we look forward to once again working with Sumitomo SHI FW in the execution of this project, said Ulf Lindqvist, head of Jämtkraft Heat division.
The large-scale design and erect (D&E) delivery will include the BFB boiler with auxiliary equipment, flue gas condensing plant, and flue gas cleaning equipment up to stack outlet, electrification, instrumentational, and control system (DCS) as well as the boiler building with turbine building as an option.
“Jämtkraft has been our customer since the 1980s, and we are extremely pleased to continue our collaboration. Growth in biomass has increased significantly in the last years and our plant design is able to use biomass fuels effectively. Our goal as a business is to help our customers on their journey towards sustainable solutions and this project will help Jämtkraft do just that,” said Jaakko Riiali.
