The aim of the project was to convert a conventional heavy fuel oil-fired water boiler to an atmospheric fluidised bed burning coal, and subsequently to assess the economic and environmental benefits. The project included the provision of the necessary ancillary systems, such as coal handling, flue gas cleaning and modernised control system, plus the re-injection of elutriated bed material. In addition, the use of limestone as the bed material, with the aim of reducing sulphur emissions, was also evaluated. Operating experience was also reported, and the economic case for the conversion and the environmental benefits obtained were investigated. This report covers the five phases of the project from design through to commissioning and the demonstration phase.
