SHB Power Plant Engineering

SHB was started in 2007 by three engineers previously together with another company. SHB immediately received an order to upgrade four Bubbling Fluidized Bed boilers in Indonesia that were suffering from boiler tube erosion from sand captured within biomass from the fields. SHB reputation grew and two biomass boilers in Brazil were modified with a proprietary “step-floor” design that improved the efficiency, stable turndown capability, and reduced tube erosion and mechanical problems with grates. SHB developed new combustion systems for improving chemical recovery boilers that substantial reduced the risk around the chemical recovery boilers. The company has developed a proprietary “Hi-Cyclone” furnace technology that improve the 3 T’s of good combustion, Time, Temperature & Turbulence.



SSGE Bioenergy Co Ltd headquartered in Hong Kong, the group through its wholly owned subsidiary based in Myanmar – SSBE (Myanmar) Group Co Ltd is operating a processing plant to produce agri-residues based biocoal with an annual production volume of 300,000 metric tons. Using the proprietary patented torrefaction technology, the group commits to extensively utilizing agri-residues for reducing field burning and natural degradation which both emit harmful CO2 and Ch4 substances respectively to the atmosphere.

Converting the input and incomplete product – pellet prior to torrefaction into a complete renewable product – biocoal helps create the world’s superior alternative green energy which has the same characteristics as fossil coal. Consequently, deforestation can be reduced.

SSGE is proud to announce that the biocoal produced by the company has been audited, certified by SCS and in full conformity with the principles and criteria imposed by RSB – an internationally recognized organization which provides certification to agri-residues as sustainable materials to produce biocoal. Moreover, the combustion test report conducted by TNO under simulation conditions further confirmed that the technical parameters are in line with the requirements of the power plant to either co-fire or fire independently – offering an alternative green energy solution to the world.
