$180 million deal for Foster Wheeler

Foster Wheeler has been awarded a $180 million contract to design and supply two circulating fluidised-bed boilers for Cleco Power.


Foster Wheeler announced today that it has been awarded a $180 million contract to design and supply two circulating fluidised-bed (CFB) boilers for Cleco Power.



The two 330 megawatt CFB boilers will be used at the company’s proposed solid-fuel generating unit at its existing Rodemacher Power Station. The two boilers are designed to use multiple fuels and will provide steam to a single 660 MW reheat turbine. The award will be included in Foster Wheeler’s first-quarter 2006 bookings.



Foster Wheeler says the boilers will burn solid fuel cleanly while meeting stringent emissions requirements. Construction of the boilers is expected to begin in the spring of 2006, with commercial operation scheduled for July 2009.
