Over 70,000 MW of Solid Fuel Fired Generators Slated For 2017 

Suppliers are pursuing projects totaling $100 billion for new coal-fired and biomass boilers slated to start up in 2017.  These projects are continually tracked in World Power Generation Projects. The combustors, steam turbines and some of the other long delivery items have already been ordered but decisions on dampers, pumps, valves, nozzles, filters and controls are now being made.

Five of the projects are in Africa, nine are in Europe, two are in South America but the remainder are in Asia. China has the largest number.  Five of the projects will use biomass as the primary fuel. Four of these are in Europe and one in India.  The 30 non-Chinese Asian projects are shown below:
