Babcock & Wilcox plugs into $50M power plant deal

ConDig (20-Mar-18).  A subsidiary of power generation company Babcock & Wilcox Enterprises Inc (B&W) has landed a $50 million deal to design and supply boiler equipment for an existing North American power plant.

Under the deal with the unnamed client, B&W will manufacture replacement boiler components for the plant’s coal-fired, natural circulation B&W radiant boiler.

Work on the project is currently underway and material delivery is slated to be completed in mid-2020.

“Maintaining a reliable and efficient North American power fleet is a key goal for B&W’s Power business,” said Mark Low, senior vice president of B&W’s Power division.

“Coal-fired plants continue to provide a substantial portion of the power delivered to the electrical grid, and it’s critical that these plants be maintained to operate at peak efficiency.”
