I wrote recently about the impressive achievements of Professor Feng Weizhong and his team in continually improving the Waigaoqiao No. 3 coal power plant in Shanghai and of his innovative plans to demonstrate further efficiency gains and capital cost reductions on other plants within China. I am pleased to acknowledge that he has now been selected to receive the ASME 2016 Prime Movers Award for his paper titled ‘Developing green, highly efficient coal-fired power technologies’. This award recognizes his outstanding contribution to thermal electric station practice and equipment, which are available through public presentation. He will receive the award and will be presenting his extraordinary achievements at the ASME 2016 Power Conference, which will be held from 26-30 June 2016 at the Charlotte Convention Centre in Carolina, USA.
