Improving power plant performance, availability and operational costs is crucial to remain competitive in today’s competitive energy market. The boiler is a key component to achieve these objectives, particularly so when using challenging fuels, such as municipal solid waste or exhaust gases with high dust contents.

This paper describes an innovative boiler design that has been used for the first time in an Energy from Waste plant in Bamberg, Germany. The new boiler design disregards the traditional heating surface arrangement and instead uses tube bundles arranged in parallel to the gas flow, which provides several advantages, such as reduced fouling. The paper describes the Bamberg project (boiler design and project highlights) and first operational results after 30,500h of operation.

Additionally, the paper investigates further options to reduce fouling through the use of dimpled tubes, especially the ip tube® technology. The technology is presented as well as first test results of such tubes in the Energy from Waste plant Rosenheim, Germany.

The paper concludes with further applications for the parallel flow boiler design, such as cement kilns, to outline future markets.
