With this intention, Doosan Lentjes proudly invited interested POWER-GEN delegates to attend its “Doosan Reception Event” on Wednesday, 21 September, from 14.00 to 17.00 at the Doosan booth D48. More than 80 people followed the invitation on the occasion of the 40th anniversary of the filing of the basic circulating fluidised bed (CFB) boiler patents for power plant applications from Doosan Lentjes’ predecessor company in 1976. The event took attendees on an exciting journey through major history milestones of CFB boiler technology while focusing on Doosan Lentjes’ achievements in developing and improving the technology over the past decades. Simultaneously, participants learned how this extensive experience helps Doosan Lentjes shape the future of CFB boiler applications and provide advanced combustion solutions for environment-sound and efficient power generation tailored to most challenging customer requirements. Thanks to an innovative virtual reality environment, attendees were invited to convince themselves of Doosan Lentjes’ capabilities and competencies by taking virtual tours through selected reference plants around the globe – an application that was highly frequented by the participants who enjoyed experiencing the plants on-site in a revolutionary 360° environment.
As an ecologically acceptable energy source, renewable fuel types such as biomass help to implement sustainable energy generation concepts which is why this fuel is about to play an increasing role in a sustainable energy mix. Understanding this development, Doosan Lentjes is proud to look back on more than 25 years of global biomass experience including new build and conversion projects and to be in a position to provide flexible CFB boiler solutions for reliable incineration of biomass – a milestone to improve the environmental performance of power plants while still delivering on efficiency targets. Among biomass applications, Doosan Lentjes is developing advanced CFB boiler technology capabilities for super critical (SC) and ultrasuper-critical (USC) steam conditions with outputs of up to 600 MWe per unit and improved net efficiencies of up to 45%. In response to global aspirations to safe resources and minimize the environmental impact of power generation facilities, this helps to optimize the use of coal while reducing both emissions and the requirements for consumables used for air pollution control equipment.
In parallel to the reception event, Doosan Lentjes was presenting on advanced seawater flue gas desulphurization (FGD) technology as part of the Conference’ Track 3 uniting topics referring to advanced power plant technologies. The presentation titled “Seawater scrubbing as a straightforward FGD technology for power plants” highlighted how Doosan Lentjes’ state-of-the-art FGD solutions can help international customers meet or exceed strictest governmental emissions requirements while still delivering on economic objectives. In order to prove the efficiencies of its plants, Doosan Lentjes presented the results of a field study that had been conducted at Gheco coal-fired power plant in 2015 – an energy generation facility with a net output of 1 x 660 MWe that was turnkey built by Doosan Heavy Industries & Construction with Doosan Lentjes providing its cutting-edge seawater FGD technology.
Together with its international customers, Doosan Lentjes looks forward to continuously improving and further developing its innovative power generation solutions that contribute to a reliable energy supply supporting a consistent and environmentally-friendly economic growth of countries around the world.
