BOULDER, CO /PRNewswire/ -- Siemens Power Generation (PG) and Zolo Technologies Inc., have signed a business agreement to introduce advanced combustion optimization solutions in coal-fired power plants. The solutions will reduce harmful emissions—including greenhouse gases—and will increase the efficiency of the generation process.

"The combination of the ZoloBOSS sensor system and the world-class Siemens optimization technology allow the Zolo/Siemens team to offer unique solutions to address common coal-fired operational faults. Furthermore, these solutions will enable efficiency increases and emissions reductions," said Henrik Hofvander, CEO of Zolo Technologies, Inc.

"We believe that there is a significant business opportunity for such technology solutions in the coal-fired power generation market. Zolo's sensor technology and Siemens' world-class control systems and market presence will allow the Zolo/Siemens team to address customers' needs immediately," added Dr. Rainer Speh, CTO and VP Marketing & Strategy at Siemens PG.

The common solution consists of a ZoloBOSS sensor system combined with Siemens SPPA-P3000 process optimization modules. It will be compatible both with Siemens control systems and with control systems supplied by other vendors.
