Sumitomo delivering boiler-steam generator set for Taiwanese paper mill

Sumitoma SHI FW will supply a 19 MW circulating fluidized bed (CFB) steam generator and related equipment for a paper mill in Taiwan, the company announced Tuesday.

The Japanese boiler maker and power generator firm was awarded the contract by Cheng Loong Corp. (CLC) for the Chupei Mill. Commercial operation of the new boiler is scheduled for July 2021.

“We are pleased to again be selected by CLC to deliver our advanced CFB steam generator for their mill which will allow CLC to meet stricter environmental emission standards while burning waste fuels. The solution is a win-win for both CLC and the environment,” Tomas Harju-Jeanty, CEO of Sumitomo SHI FW, said in a statement.

Sumitomo also will provide auxiliary equipment and technical advisory services for erection and commissioning of the steam generator. The CFB will be designed to burn paper mill rejects as primary fuel and paper mill sludges and coal as secondary fuels.

This is the second CFB that SFW has supplied to CLC. In 2012, Sumitomo Heavy Industries (SHI), as a licensee of SFW, delivered a 35 MW CFB boiler firing coal and tire derived fuel for CLC’s Houli Mill.
